Conestoga brief and contest updates

I'll post my Conestoga rundown tomorrow--I'm running behind right now due to United Airlines having stolen a day of my life.

EDITED TO ADD: Read others' accounts of Conestoga here on the Fangs Fur & Fey debriefing post.

All I can say is that it was fabulous, one of my all-time favorite convention/conference experiences. I had a chance to talk at length with a lot of people I'd only met briefly at more hectic conferences like RT, or had met only online. The convention was tons of fun, without leaving me feeling like I'd been hit by a cement truck.

The trip there and back, on the other hand?

Let's see, from the time I left my house until I got to my hotel room Thursday: 17 hours.

On the way home? 26 hours.

I'm once again thinking of giving up air travel.

Two contest updates:

The winner of a copy of Nancy Hunter's Taste of Liberty is Jamie! Thanks to everyone who commented on the interview last week, and especially thanks to Nancy for stopping by. Jamie, please get in touch with me at jeri AT jerismithready DOT com to claim your fabulous prize.

Also, there's one day left to win a signed copy of Wicked Game on Sidhe Vicious's blog, where she interviewed me earlier this month.

Now. Must shower. Brush teeth. Buy groceries. All the things I couldn't do while standing in line at Customer Service. (Fortunately, I am part English, so standing patiently in line is in my blood.)

Labels: , ,


So sorry for the flight. You don't have that good of luck with planes, do you?!
Anyways, hopefully, the next time you are in town, I'll be able to be there. I did reread "Wicked Game" again and I must say, one of the best paranormal I have ever read. (I was not feeling too hot so I had two full days of bed rest. It was handy. :) )
Anyway, hope your next trip is better.
