Thursday's Lovers

Made you look. (See? I don't pull the double entendres out JUST on Hump Days. You've been warned.)

Well, the downward slide towards the weekend has really begun. But before we get there, there's still lots going on. So, let's get to it!

First off, head over to the next stop on the Necropolis Blog Tour. Check out the latest excerpt at Book Lovers Inc. and while you're there, be sure to enter to win a copy of The Night Beat.

Speaking of winning, the first blog to announce a winner is Bibliognome. Check it out to see if you're the lucky winner!

Then see what The Peasants Revolt thought of The Night Beat. 

Be sure to hit all the other stops on the Tour -- you can enter to win a copy at each stop, and increase the ol' odds of winning exponentially. If you've missed a stop, get caught up at Invasion of the Blog Tour, including: Stop 5/Ex Libris, contest ends Sept. 21; Stop 6/Pearls Cast Before a McPig, contest ends Sept. 29; Stop 8/A Buckeye Girl Reads, contest ends Sept. 28; Stop 9/Hanging with Bells, contest ends Sept. 25; Stop 10/The Peasants Revolt, contest ends Sept. 27; and Stop 11/Sara's Urban Fantasy Blog, contest ends Sept. 29.

Now it's time for my belated CopperCon recap. CopperCon happened over Labor Day weekend, and while goes for four days, it's a smaller, relaxed con, so it's very vacation-like. For a smaller con it was loaded with panels, meaning I didn't get to panel with everyone I'd have liked to. BUT, I did get to panel with Marsheila Rockwell, Jordan Summers, Saul Garnell, and Thomas Watson, along with non-authors Brian Duncan aka the Movie Whiz, and Geologist and bio-hazard waste specialist Kay Pannell who you want with you when the zombie apocalypse hits -- all of which were tons of fun. I also got to hang out with a variety of cool authors including David Lee Summers, T.L. Smith, and Janeen O'Kerry, and some wonderful Members of the Alien Collective in Very Good Standing.

I also got to get to know awesome author James A. Owen better. Yes, it's true -- he really IS the nicest man in the world, and that's saying something, because I know a lot of nice men. (Insert whatever joke you want here.) If you get a chance to see him, don't miss it. Though I don't recommend seeing him right before you have to do a panel (especially not a Writing Erotica panel) because your audience looks at you funny when it appears you've been crying over someone's awesome life story. Hey, it's a really moving, follow your heart and your gut story. *sniffle*

Because of scheduling, I missed the opening ceremonies, which was disappointing because my friend Colette Vernon won CopperCon's short story contest and I'd wanted to cheer when she got her prize. (I had her sign my program and she forgave me.) I also missed the masquerade, meaning that I've seen a total of 1 masquerade -- at the first con I ever attended -- in all the time I've been going to cons (um, about 3 years). I liked the one I saw. One day, perhaps I'll get to see another one, but CopperCon was not that day.

Bottom line: a lovely time was had by all and I left the con feeling refreshed and ready to get back to writing, and really, you can't ask for more than that.

Well, that's it for today, but more's on the way. So keep your eye on the weekend prize and let's be readers out there!
