Dragon*Con and Decatur Book Fest

I'm leaving! For the rest of the Labor Day Weekend, I'll be splitting my time between Dragon*Con in Atlanta and Decatur Book Fest in Decatur (near Atlanta). If you're near the area, come introduce yourself to me!

Before I go, a few quick updates:

  • In the past two days, the entries for the Creative Contest literally doubled! Between the increase in entries and the fact that I'm leaving tomorrow--I just can't decide on the winner right now. It will be the first thing I do when I get back early next week, though, I swear! It's just that you guys are so awesome that I can't decide!!
  • I will probably be unable to check email, post here, etc., but I DO plan on tweeting (yay for SmartPhones!), so if you want to keep up with me, follow me at @BethRevis
And, just in case you'll be in Atlanta for it, here's my schedule!

OHhhh, I went to Dragon*Con last year. Pity I miss out this year (and every year for a while... I DO live in Australia after all). Have a great time!

I'm so mad I didn't plan ahead for the prohibitive cost of DragonCon. I may be going down to meet Cole Gibsen anyway, though, in the free parts, so maybe I'll bump into you.

I'll be in Decatur and YOU BEST BELIEVE I'll be finding you to get my copy of ATU signed!
