Other major achievements:
- sold almost all of my entire stock of books at Can-Con
- met one of my inspiration authors, Tanya Huff, and she bought Revelations!!!

On Friday, I met my con-buddy and Blue Penciler, Jennifer, and we spent an hour going over her manuscript and talking about the publishing industry and how to balance real life and writing time.
And I also ran into Any, my first and favourite fan. She is so sweet and fun to talk to.
And then, on Saturday, came my huge thrill where I got to meet Tanya Huff and she autographed my book (even though I missed her signing) and then, when I was already feeling a fangirl high, she joined us for dinner.

The cherry on the weekend was when Tanya bought a copy of Revelations and then when I sold my final copy of Revelations (and all but 3 copies of Metamorphosis). This kind gentleman picked up one copy of each.

I made some wonderful connections and there may be some interesting opportunities coming up. I have to talk and get some details and make some decisions. There were a couple of rough moments, but overall, a great weekend and a great experience. Can't wait for next year.
