Off to Wis Con! Feminist S/F Conference

If you haven’t seen it yet, Maleficent is a realllllllly interesting movie, and not what I thought it would be like at ALL.

So my friend talked me into going off to Madison, Wisconsin for a week.  So excited to go to Madison, which I hear is hella cool.  Have no idea what I’m getting myself into, really, I’m just up for the adventure.

There’s a hair braiding party.  There’s a Mulan Slumber Party, and there’s a panel I really, really, really want to go to that’s about how Disney is sorta doing the fan-fic thing lately, taking fairy tale characters and putting them in alternative universes.  Not sure how that’s going to go, but if they’re talking about Maleficent, I’m listening.  You know?  I wrote a post about it HERE back before I’d seen the movie — but really, the movie is Sleeping Beauty turned on it’s head.

I’d like to go to more conferences in the future–this one happened to be super cheap.  No idea if any romance readers will be there, but my quest is to talk to fantasy people about elves, and wicked apprentices (wink wink, nudge nudge).

wiscon_28I’m back on June first when I’ll be talking to more with my editor about revisions to Wicked Apprentice, and maybe I’ll even find out if I have a release date for the book.  Yay!

Hope you all embrace your inner nerd and follow your bliss while I’m away.  Ciao!
