Heads up, Wisconsin for I AM INCOMING, oh yes. My main event out in that fine land of dairy products and other assorted varieties of awesome: TeslaCon. The very first of its kind, actually. I am rather stoked, I don’t mind telling you! A weekend of dressing up and goofing off in steampunkland? Yes, please!
But also – while I’m in the area, the organizers of this event have kindly partnered with a local B&N and Borders, both of which I will be visiting during my time in your cheese-producing midst. (Yes, I know that there is much more to be found in Wisconsin than cheese, but I really freaking love cheese.)
These will be public events, not affiliated with the convention – so you do not have to be a participant at Teslacon in order to show up, hang out, get your stuff signed, and hear some corny jokes from yours truly. As follows:
Friday, November 5th – Barnes & Noble – East Towne Mall location, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.. Yes, that’s earlier than most of my other signings and whatnot, and I do apologize – but the store is working around convention programming.
Sunday, November 7 – Borders – East Madison location starting at 5:00 p.m. and running ’till whenever. Hopefully, this will allow some of you who are working on Friday to catch me while I’m around.
I am always (and I do mean always) happy to meet readers, and as one of my LJ icons states so bluntly – I will talk with anyone about anything. I am a talker. Furthermore, I am a talker who works at home alone all day, so when I get to actually LEAVE THE HOUSE for convention-type shenanigans, I am usually very wound up about it and very excited to have people to talk to.

Anyway! Now the time has come for me to do all those tiny travel things that add up to an evening’s worth of work. Printing all pertinent docs, making sure I have all the phone numbers I need, deciding what precisely I’m going to wear so that I can cram my +5 Carry-On of Holding to the limit, charging all electronics, performing pet maintenance, go to the bank, go to Walgreens, and the like.
I will have my laptop in Madison, but I’m not sure how much time I’ll have for updates. If you’re terribly interested in following my out-of-town shenanigans, Twitter is your best bet. I can send pictures via Twitter, and I rather enjoy doing so.
Thanks for reading, everyone – and I hope to see some of you in Madison later on this week!
