I'll be driving to suburban Chicago Friday to attend Windycon. Wish me luck.
This will be about the same distance I would have traveled from my home to attend DragonCon in Atlanta over the Labor Day weekend. As you may recall, getting stuck on a blocked interstate for five hours - plus the remnants of Hurricane Harvey moving inland - killed those plans.
Now, on the Veterans Day weekend, I am attempting another long trek. Like I said, wish me luck!
If you will be there at the Westin Lombard Yorktown for the convention, say Hi! This will be my first time to attend WindyCon.
Here is my schedule:
Saturday, 10:00 am Autograph Session
