ClexaCon - EVERYTHING was there - books, Wynonna Earp cast & Earpers, fans, cool short films, art - so many things. I usually get excited a few days before I head out. Much to my chagrin, I woke up Wednesday with a horrific sore throat and congestion. I caught a cold. A crappy spring cold. I was ready for some Vegas debauchery and I knew that it would be limited until I got better.
My ears were wrecked from the flight to Vegas, but I pushed through the pain and hung out with my author buddies, because I love them and I have FOMO. Why go through all the trouble to attend something and then be sick in the hotel room? There were a few afternoons I had to chill out, but I really didn't want to miss anything.
Falling sold out in a matter of hours. Listen by the end of Friday. I didn't bring enough copies of either book. I'll know better for next year. What a great feeling! I met some fantastic readers and hung out with them outside of the conference. It's always fun getting to know somebody on a more personal level.
Vegas is a fun town. There's wonderful food everywhere and gambling. I had a "gambling wife" I sneaked away with under the guise of buying coffee or alcohol for the room, but we really went to the tables. So much fun! Even when we got caught, nobody cared because it was just a great time. I want to do the whole thing over now that I'm healthy and can appreciate it more.
Elle Spencer said it best... "ClexaCon, you sexy mother fucker. I miss you. Until next year."
It was a blast!
