bestselling author of The Black Magician Trilogy

Supanova Melbourne

Supanova in Melbourne was fabulous. I met many adorable fans and had a wonderful time with my fellow authors, guests and the Supanova staff and volunteers, despite having almost no voice at times thanks to picking up a cold the weekend before.

It was also very busy, so I didn’t manage to take as many photos. But I did get some good ‘uns…

With Lucy Lawless as one of the guests, both Supanovas had a few well exectued Xenas.

Ferocious!

A very tolerant Cyberman who was commandeered for several photos next to the author table.

Cats!

And Michael Pryor, author extraordinaire, who would occasionally bring out his flaming book. I now have prop envy.

I’m getting better at finding time to go shopping. I pick up these wonderful necklaces at the Gold Coast Supanova from Vaudeville Couture:

And this adorable turtle from Pirate Dragon:

I grabbed this wallet from one of my favourite designers, Jubly-Umph Originals:

And I couldn’t resist this replica cat skull from Night Shade FX:

Why? Because they’re interesting to draw and paint. And speaking of drawing… I picked up a couple of comics:

And bought some original art from Nen:

There was plenty more to be tempted by – in particular I wish I’d had more time to browse the t-shirts at Tiizy and I was very tempted by the cat face bags at Quirky Stylin Alternative Threads.

Next time, maybe.
