I was invited to attend Dragon Con this year as a professional. Dragon Con is held annually in Atlanta, Georgia and other than E3 in Los Angeles, I haven't been to a convention this huge (from what I've heard and read, Dragon Con attracts more than 70,000 people).
What makes this convention cool for me is that the novel I wrote with Eric Flint, Iron Angels, will be officially released on September 5, but will be available at the convention.
I have a fairly light schedule, which suits me fine as I really want to walk around and mingle and hang out with friends!
