Preparing for Epicon

Hubby and I decided we weren't going to fly anymore to far off places. Making all the plane changes, hurrying from here to there with loaded bags, rising three of four hours after going to bed to get to the airport on time, to say nothing of the cost had gotten to be too much for us old folks.

Though we attended every single Epicon from the beginning, we skipped last year's in Williamsburg, Va for all the above reasons. For awhile this year's Epicon was going to be a cruise from the East Coast and I knew we wouldn't do that one. Then the venue changed--San Antonio would be the place. We loved San Antonio when we went there once before, but we stuck to our guns.

That is until Lingering Spirit became a finalist for an Eppie. Now I've had other books that were finalists for an Eppie and I've never won. I know what those movie stars feel like at the Oscars. You can't help but be hopeful and then disappointed when your name isn't called.

I didn't enter Lingering Spirit into the competition, my publisher did. She loves this book.

So--guess what? Hubby and I are flying to San Antonio for Epicon. My publisher will be there too for the awards banquet. You can wish me and Lingering Spirit luck if you like. No matter what  happens I know we'll have a great time.

Now I have to figure out what clothes I can fit into my little carry-on including something dressy for the banquet.

Oh, and by the way, since I'm going anyway I offered to be an instructor and I'll be talking about blogging and blog tours.

Lingering Spirit is a romance with a touch of the supernatural. Though it is fictionalized, it's based on something that happened in our family. It's available as ebook and trade paperback at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Congratulations on being a finalist. My prayers are with you on your journey. Enjoy your trip.
Thank you, Cheryl. Once we get there we'll have fun no matter what. It's the getting there and back that's a pain.
