Just a quick update as I am exhausted after three days of convention. I had a ball. Got to be on two panels with Scott Card and chat with him for about 45 minutes after one of the panels. He is a great guy. Very, very, nice but just as brilliant as you would expect from his books. Then my wife and I ran into him and his family at a restaurant after the con. Very cool. I also was on a panel with Brandon Sanderson who is doing the last "Wheel of Time" book. He is also great. Gail Carson Levine was a huge hit. Very funny and insightful. Just a few others: Mettie Ivie Harrison, who is actually the little sister of a close friend of mine, Jessica Day George who is very funny, and my good friends James Dashner and Julie Wright. A very fun couple of days. But now I'm ready to crash. Oh, and Brian, Ishkabiddles are small fuzzy creatures that cling to the bottom of cattle grates. Which is why you have to honk your horn before driving over them :)
More on Sunday or Monday. Have a great rest of the weekend.
