Not sure this is the right place for this post, so please move if necessary.

Had the pleasure of attending a discussion and signing by Todd McCaffrey this evening in Southern California. Small crowd, but he was great, spent time answering questions, talking about his Mum, and how it is to write books with her. Very enjoyable! I am fortunate that he lives close by and signs locally fairly often (as I had 7 books for signature!).

Larry, which book is sitting on the table on Todd's right? I'm not familier with the cover... Is it the US Dragons Fire?

Thanks for the help on the picture, glad to see if finally appeared! The book on Todd's right is probably the UK Dragongirl, and the one in the right front in the picture is UK Dragonharper, I believe. I like to collect both US & UK when possible (but unlike Hans, I stop there, I don't see many Spanish, Italian, German, etc

Very cool Larry! It is such a pleasure to be able to meet an author for books you enjoy reading.

I had the opportunity to meet and get a book signed by Todd McCaffrey at Albacon with some others from this site a couple years ago and enjoyed myself that weekend very much......both with getting a book signed and meeting very nice people that share a common interest!

That was a glorious weekend! I wish there were more local, small conventions to go to! That was a strange pool, wasn't it. Felt like you were in a fish bowl with the stairways going right beside it! Not my idea of privacy, but the water sure felt good!

I'd go back in time and do it again, even if Anne didn't show up again! We had a blast just meeting each other and going to the panels that were much less hectic than at Dragon*Con. It was wonderful getting to talk to some of the writers and other panelists and even becoming friends with some of them! I wish there were some other small conventions within traveling distance!

Cilla, Cilla, Cilla! There most certainly are other small cons in traveling distance. Off the top of my head, I'd think that Boskone in Boston is near enough to you.

Check here to see what else's in your neck of the woods. The list can be sorted by location, just click the funny icon next to city or region or country.

I agree with KC and Priscilla! While I was very disappointed not to be able to meet Anne, it was wonderful being able to meet some fellow MoMers and spend the weekend together. I'd love to see all of you again!!

We should try to plan something!!

Hans, there are multiple ComicCons every year. The San Diego one was still held like normal, and that's the truly huge one. The NY one is another traditional one, and I think there's at least one more standard one.

Ahh, thank you for enlightening me. I got confsed probably by a tweet that said that some sellers/publishers in NY were glad it was San Diego again next year or some remark like that. Thanks.
