New York Comic Con - Some More Thoughts and Giveaway 2

So... I spend most of New York Comic Con doing interviews, saying hello to authors and publicists I've meet before, meeting authors and publicist I've only emailed with or tweeted at (or should that be with?), and meeting new authors and publicists. I do wander about a lot too in between trying to follow a schedule that has me in 4 places at once (which I actually have never managed to do). Sometimes I'm about to enter a panel and end up getting a text that someone is available NOW for an interview and end up rushing through the crowd to get where I now need to be. Rushing of course is a relative term at NYCC. It's more like carefully moving around people and trying not to bump into to anyone or be bumped into. I say "Excuse me" a lot. I also spend a lot of time on lines for book signings. At a signing by Michael R. Underwood I had the extreme pleasure of meeting two folks I chat with on Twitter: Rob Bedford and Shecky. We had a really lovely time chatting! (Waves "hi" to Rob and Shecky) This is another thing I love about NYCC: the chance to meet and talk with people who I'd never otherwise meet. And the chance to talk with complete strangers who share common interests and likes. In that respect NYCC 2014 is amazing!

So enough about the Con... you want to know what I'm giving away.
