ConCarolinas 2010

I had a great time at ConCarolinas 2010!

I got to meet my the managing editor of Gryphonwood Press and Gryphonwood authors David Wood, Ryan Span and Jim Bernheimer, all who attended the convention.

I participated on two well-attended panels discussing various aspects of writing. (Here is the link of the first part of a discussion on Archetypes and Themes in Speculative Fiction--the parts will be posted/uploaded by Jim Bernheimer later this week.)

(Two Panel Attendees who arrived early for a front seat)

I met a ton of readers and science fiction/fantasy enthusiasts, many of which purchased signed copies of Flank Hawk. I even picked up some semi-official endorsements:

I also got to meet and chat with author John Ringo (who signed a few of his books for me):

And Actress Claudia Christian (of Babylon 5 fame):

And Richard Hatch (of Battlestar Galactica fame). The picture below caught him (on a cell) speaking with my wife, asking if it was okay with her the women I seemed to be hanging out with--see the barbarian woman endorsement and Claudia Christian above, among others ;)

ConCarolinas 2010
was a well-run con with a constant array of activities and events for fantasy/science fiction enthusiasts and fans to attend. I'm already planning on attending ConCarolinas 2011!


  1. Looks like so much fun. I love the endorsements. I will have to watch that on Youtube soon. I had to miss the recent con in Salt Lake because of my hurt ankle. Now I'm feeling jealous!

  2. Many writers go most of their career without meeting their publishing staff and fellow writers. You are one of the lucky ones. Glad to hear the con was a success for you.

  3. Angie, hope the ankle heals up quickly and doesn't keep you out of the fun action too much longer. ConCarolinas was a great time.

    Thanks, Sandy. It was pretty cool meeting the my publisher and fellow Gryphonwood authors.

  4. Sounds great! I'm glad you enjoyed yourself and met so many people.

  5. Thanks for stopping by, Cher. It was fun to meet so many cool folks, Cher.
