A Gathering of Authors - 38th Annual TusCON

It's finally nippy enough in Southern Arizona to wear a sweater or a jacket this week! 
I'll be attending all weekend, from FRI afternoon until SUN. My default hangout is always the LAN gaming rooms in the hotel, where you can find me playing World of Warcraft & first-person shooter games with my Romance Hero and lots of our friends. Stop in and say Hi!
Last year the Con hosted Guest Authors Jim Butcher (Dresden Files) and Sharon Butcher. This year NYT Bestselling Author Patricia Briggs will be the TusCON Guest of Honor! ... Patty is joined by many other SF, Fantasy, and Romance authors, such as Emma Bull, Frankie Robertson, Jennifer Roberson, Jordan Summers, Yvonne Navarro, Gini Koch, Janni Simner, Weston Ochse, Dennis McKiernan, John Vornholt, David Lee Summers, Anne Elizabeth, and of course, Moi
The Con is famous for its emphasis on getting to meet your favorite authors and artists, and to chat with them in a casual atmosphere. There's a variety of author readings and panels all three days, an Author Autographing session on Saturday, books galore of course, a fabulous Art Show, several Gaming areas for your kids (and you!) including Board games, LARPing and a huge PC LAN gaming set up! There's also an awesome Anime movie room (a favorite), movie Previews, Filking, Shopping, a Consuite with goodies, FREE swag, and a Masquerade Contest!!
A gathering of Romance/SF/Fantasy/Horror authors all at one location?? A book lover's dream! ... Thanks for reading and see you there!
