Phauxcon 2009.... feedback!!

3 years ago Xionin slowly twisted my arm during the year to get me to fly over for Phauxcon 2007 - and I decided that if i would be flying all that way for a weekend then I would like to help her run in any way I could.....

This past weekend was my 3rd Phauxcon and I have to say it surpassed all my expectations by a long way :-)

Having Jim Butcher and his lovely wife as guests 3 years ago was wonderful.. this year it was amazing to spend some real quality time with the wonderful L A Banks.

L A Banks went for dinner with us on the Friday and Saturday nights as well as giving us all an excellent overview of her steps to becoming a sucessful writer and the challenges everyone faces.

In addition to this David and Filamena did 2 excellent panels around Role Playing Games and links from mythologic vampires to modern vampire trends and writing.

Xionin and Denny_dc did a superb job of opening discussions on some of the most recent vampire related programmes - TV and Film formats.

There are many people I know in the UK that think I have lost the plot by flying to Philadephia for 5 days each year - but i get to spend quality time with some exceptional people and also some chill time with my best friend Xionin....

what more could I ask for?

I will be back for Phauxcon 2010!!! - I hope to see you all there as well.

2010......
Just checking my pulse here... Xionin is looking to start planning for 2010 event in the next few weeks.... for those of you that know my wonderful best friend the idea of planning something that far in advance is..... interesting...

However.. joking aside!!... we need feedback on what the mad fan fiction people would like to include within next years event.. Xionin will (I expect) lean towards a theme for the event as if the normal process :-)) but we would love everyones input.

Also - whilst it was wonderful to have a nice cosy meeting - which we all love - it would be good to see if we can encourage a few more people along so please spread the word :-))
