I didn't have anything to sell, but I do try to run into as many people as I can with businesses cards people can use as bookmarks. This year I ran into Mark K. Braun, who has put a great deal of work into formatting the upcoming RAPID TRANSIT: 30 years of short fiction by Crossroad Press. He introduced me to Laura Enright, author of TO TOUCH THE SUN. I also ran into Jay Bonansinga and Jill Norton. Took me awhile to get the photos onto my computer.

I attended PR a few days back and intend to post photos in a few days, but I never told the story of when my writer friend David Bain and his daughter drove here from Indiana, picked me up, and we printed up tickets for several events during the day.

While we were doing this, David's daughter walked around the room and looking at everyone using the computers. 9AM on a Saturday. Needless to say, she mentioned to us that there were so many people watching what looked like porn that she came back over and stood by us.

Walker Stalker Con

I was able to get in for free as I was given a media pass, and I'm hoping to sell an article to FANGORIA or some other magazine because I am a whore as all writers are. But there are some wonderful people I met. Michael Rooker, somewhat of a legend here. Christian Serratos, who plays Rosita on THE WALKING DEAD, and incredibly, RJ Mittre, who played Jr. on BREAKING BAD. He has cerebral palsy on his left side, me on my right. We hugged and teared up a little. We both agreed that it was "bad doctors" that made us the way we are. We share a secret.

Seriously. I was in that booth, just past the pretty woman from Plainfield who I next saw in the episode of CHICAGO PD  that I mentioned filming in the last post.  But it was fun sitting there eating my hash browns for five hours and watching the booths and people get jostled around. I memorized the dialogue of the actors, they had to do several takes, then do several more when people were switched around, and again when booths were moved and new camera angles were set up. I got paid for my time, but I really enjoy the process. The entire scene lasted about three minutes at the opening of the show. Six hours and sixty people for three minutes.
