A Whirlwind of Activity

Wow.

Just wow.

Except to venture out to face the fine ladies at the US Post Office to mail two books this afternoon and eat a relatively late lunch, I’ve barely been off the couch today. Boy has it been a busy two weeks. Fun? You bet. But am I a bit on the beat side? Absolutely.

I got to spend May 29-31 with a few thousand of my closest friends at Con Carolinas, the largest sci-fi/fantasy convention in NC each year, then book signings at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill on Jun 7 and Scuppernong books in Greensboro on Jun 11. Oh, yeah, and still working in between and trying to squeeze in some sleep in the middle of it all.

To recount a full two weeks of activities seems Herculean at the moment, but I thought I’d post some fun pictures. To those of you I got to cross paths with at these various events, great to see you and look forward to the next event!

And how to end such a great day / two weeks? Drinks, dessert, and a quick walking tour of downtown Greensboro on a beautiful night.

Like I said, a whirlwind of two weeks, but wouldn’t trade them for anything.

Back in Charlotte, and almost rejuvenated.

May write some tomorrow, but for tonight, I think I’ll watch a little Daredevil…

See you all on the flip side!
