Contact (Swancon) was the best con ever! People were so friendly and enthusiastic. The committee were helpful, organised and their cheerfulness was infectious. My fellow guests were insightful and fun. And my minders (who I called minions), Sandra and Wing, were fabulous – both a delight to hang out with and ready to spring into action if I needed them.
Unfortunately Paul and I brought home Richard Morgan’s cold. (Okay, there were other people there with colds that we could have caught it from, but we’re blaming Richard.) So Paul hasn’t downloaded any pics and I haven’t been up to writing blog posts. Hopefully I’ll be able to put something up here soon.
In the meantime I’ll be concentrating on getting better so I can get stuck into finishing The Ambassador’s Mission. I didn’t manage to get the first draft done before Swancon because of a very different flu that was going around, but I only have about eight or so chapters left to write. (I guess I should be grateful that, what with all the travelling I’ve been doing, I’ve only had two bouts of cold/flu so far this year.)
There’s another convention coming up soon: Conjecture in Adelaide. And then another event coming up in the second half of the year… but the international flights and hotels aren’t booked yet so I’ll have to save that announcement for another time.
