Hello and welcome!
As some of you may know, I attended KaLiCon this year again with M. A. Abraham, if you missed my intro post you can check it out here.
Only the 2nd year and the event Kali Willows, Kacey Hammell and their kickass team organized was absolutely amazing. I enjoyed it all.
the registration bags and the swag received…
the ELVEN GAMES 2.0 Thursday afternoon where I got to help out, we had so much fun. Among other contests, I got them to do sock monkeys, they are not easy to do and was impressed with them. The pink one got first prize!
the double feature movie night on Thursday in our PJs. We had some LOL moments when some of the gals got their stuffed animals to be naughty, Sharon’s poor teddybear got traumatized by the monkey 😀 … my red dragon felt left out though 😉
but got some cuddles from two other cute teddybears 😉
Murder Mystery Dinner with full production on Friday night
the book signing was FREE to the general public on Saturday
the Halloween party where everybody dressed up on Saturday night … and danced our tushies off 😀
The food was great at all meals.
I won this beautiful table arrangement at one of the lunches, made by The Briers Edge. One of my friends at the table liked it so much, I gave it to her.
The silent auction was even more successful than last year, so many great items donated, the proceeds went to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.
I won the bid on this art made also by The Briers Edge, depicting C. A. King‘s book, “Miracles Not Included“.
Oh the laughter… the awesome conversations… the dancing… the shenanigans … we had a blast! Great memories!!! Finally got to meet Andi Lawrencovna and she is such a delightful person to be around, lots of fun too. Got to see again some old friends, meet new ones too from which I know there will be a few that will be long lasting friendships.
There was a contest for the readers for which I entered too. I didn’t win, but had a blast writing the short story, fan-fiction in my fave world, the Elven Chronicles, where my ultimate BBF took me to the masquerade ball at KaLiCon. I had no idea would be that hard to let the story out of my hands. I don’t know how authors do it, like letting your baby go out into the wild world LOL the few that read the story so far say they enjoyed it.
I was really good this signing, bought only a few books.
I recommend Pépé G. Woodman‘s “The Dragon Within“, it is such a heartfelt and inspirational book with lots of beautiful photos. The author will be chatting with me in the new year here on the blog. Hope you will join us then.
For more info, check out the KaLiCon website, Twitter and Facebook. Hopefully there is another event planned next year.
And now the giveaway … a bag with all kinds of swag, a copy of “Invited, A Dinner to Die For” I bought an extra copy just for you and got signed by the authors. Also two signed books generously gifted, “Mythic Iron” from Kali Willows and “Guarding Midnight” from Kacey Hammell.
Tell me what are you reading/listening to right now. Sexy Mr. Random will pick the winner from the comments, after 3pm EST on Thursday, December 26, 2019. Open internationally! GOOD LUCK!
