If you are in the Phoenix area this weekend, the Comic Con is a must attend type of event. I am insanely jealous, almost to the point of having a full scale tantrum, that I am sooooo close and still can't go. No joke, after I found out that Delilah S. Dawson was going to be there (everyone knows that I am practically a stalker about her Blud books) I literally stomped my feet and pouted like a baby. I pulled a total "it's not fair" moment. First, I miss attending the RT convention because I haven't won the lottery yet, and I review for them even, but now this! I've already declared that next year I am going to this Con...or else!
Why am I missing this awesome opportunity to wear corsets and goggles, get a bunch of books signed, and meet my favorite author, you ask? I blame it all on responsible parenting. Miss Monster just finished the school year (hooray), but in a bit of idiotic thinking Mr. Monster's school thought it would be a good idea to have finals after Memorial Day. Seriously, who does that?
So needless to say, I am completely bummed out.
That doesn't mean you should forgo attending Phoenix Comic Con. No sir. In fact, I would love to hear from readers that have attended this con, or some other awesome steampunk/book signing/comic loving event.
