SLC Comic Con

Comic Con in Salt Lake City was beyond epic this year! Writers Cubed set up a table for Teen Author Boot Camp to advertise our next event on April 11th 2015! We are excited to announce that our keynote will be Brandon Sanderson!

We also launched our new book club CubeReads: Book club in a box. Subscribe to get our monthly book recommendations and book club hosting ideas. Check it out!

There was so much to do and see there! The celebrity guest list was huge and impressive. The fans in costume were fabulous to gawk at. I had a great time hanging out with my author friends and interacting with our boot-campers.

It was fun to be involved on three different panels at Comic Con with some really great people. The fans are so enthusiastic and the atmosphere totally buzzes with synergy.

My first panel, Dealing With Rejection: An Artist and Creator Survival Guide, included my good friend,  J. Scott Savage.

After that I got to be on a panel, Making Your Female Character Strong Without Turning Her Into a Fighting Machine, with my good friend and fellow Cubie, Jennifer Jenkins. 

My last panel was my favorite! The Whedonverse: Why Writers and Creators Love Buffy, Angel, Firefly and the Rest. A couple of my author friends, Sara B. Larson and Bree Despain were on that panel with me and I think I love them even more because they love Buffy. =)

I'm totally excited to participate in next year's Con. It is just too much fun! Shenanigans and hi-jinks with some of the most talented and enjoyable people I know!
