Had a Blast at StokerCon

StokerCon was awesome! There was lots to do...My Dangerous Dames and All the Screaming: Writing Sex and Romance in Horror Panels were well attended and since all of the panelists prepared in adavnace, engaging conversations; the Cross-Genre Writing Panel, on the other hand was a disaster--the moderator had not emailed questions beforehand--and while I can think on the fly--he obviously couldn't. I attended lots of great panels, too many to mention!

I caught up with writers I hadn't seen in years, like Linda Addison, Michael, Arnzen, Scott Eldeman JG Faherty, Elizabeth Massie, Lisa Morton, and countless others; I also met lots of Authors I'd previously only known online...

I also went on the H. P. Lovecraft tour, which was fun, despite all of the rain and wind! We walked 4.5 miles, quite a workout!

The Biltmore Hotel left a lot to be desired: Housekeeping didn't clean my room until after 1:00 p.m. the first day, and only because I called the front desk. They only left me one roll of toilet paper and one box of tissues. I had to ask for more. There was lots of flooding in the hotel on Friday, due to the Nor'easter--water came into the Starbucks via the windows and part of the ceiling collapsed in the restaurant...

Hats off to Jim Chambers for putting together such a great Con!
