This year, we still had a great showing of celebs like Karl Urban:
|They didn't have an LOTR background, darn it!|
And there was a costume contest hosted by Ville TV. I won for best female--even had my pic and a quote in the Courier Journal!

I had a ton of pics made with attendees, most of them in front of my banner, which made a great background:
The literary track was a huge success this year, thanks to the hard work of Stephen Zimmer, Robin Blankenship, Ken Daniels, and many more. I sold out of books for the first time at a show, as did several other authors. The panels were well-attended and active, especially the Hobbit: Book vs. Movie panel, which I moderated:

|Sci-fi and fantasy collide!|
I'm still recovering and playing catch-up with emails and posts, but it's a good kind of tired. We're already gearing up for Imaginarium in September. In the meantime, I'm busy working, writing, and doing the mama thing until I can put my ears on again.
