The main reason I was determined to get to Marcon this year, no matter what, was because the editor Guest of Honor was Baen’s Publisher, Toni Weisskopf. I really wanted to meet her. And I did! I spent an hour chatting with her Sunday afternoon, and had a lovely time.
Because I hadn’t been feeling so hot before the convention, I brought my husband along to make sure I ate real food, got enough sleep, and didn’t waste any energy. That seems to have done what I needed it to do, but it does mean that I missed most of the filking.
(Going to bed at 11 o’clock on a Saturday night? At a Con!?! That’s practically heresy.)
Ah, well. There will be other Marcons.
