I’ve been invited to the Random House party in Comic-Con. I’m still trying to get used to the idea–for a lot of the things that have happened with my writing, I’ve been able to imagine it first. I know what a book signing looks like. I know basically what I’m supposed to do when I see cover art.

But I have no context for this party–which is actually kinda cool. It would be interesting to go in without expectations for once and see what plays out.

Yep--at night, everybody wants in at those parties, and it will be crampacked people. Exciting people, to be sure, but be prepared for nowhere to sit, and the constant roar of conversation, and stupefying heat as the a/c labors to catch up.

This is an experience to have, at least once. The dealers' area alone is going to just be jawdroppingly cool. For that aspect, I wish you could take Mango. He would be thrilled beyond belief. For the rest, well, you're sharing the fun with 100k plus people.

I'm thinking if you actually -wear- the white polyester suit of the subject, you won't need to stuff anything else into the backpack *g*

Heh. Not exactly elegant phrasing, eh? :) This is why I live and die by revision.

    Oh yeah. Like the lawyers who get obvious really venal criminals off because it makes their success rate look good. But those are not the ones I am referring to in meaning well. These guys are mixed…

    This reminds me of the time my wife was injured and the insurance guy handling her case did everything possible to deny and stall the payment. We had to put her surgery on a credit card because this…

    The creepiest part is that some of them are actually well meaning.

    Yeah. It's godawful what people will do when they have authority and no fear about using it.
