2 weeks late, FAIL on my part. But those of your following my various social media outlets know how busy I’ve been… being on vacation at Walt Disney World with my family.
My post from last year is here, and as you can see, this year the con did NOT fall on our anniversary, but the weekend before it. Still, we took advantage of the weekend to have a mini “happy 12 years of marriage” celebration.
For me, the big highlight this year were two of the writer guests & a couple of my closest friends Bryan Young & Aaron Allston. The fact that both of these gentlemen were there made for not just a super fun con where many shenanigans ensued (be afraid, be very afraid), but a con that felt familiar, comfortable, & a bit like home. In addition there were many fantastic guests, like Gail Z. Martin, Robert West, Jim Bernheimer, Betty Cross, etc, that were so great to both see again & I was delighted to be on panels with them again.
“Spring has something of mine; he knows what it is.” She smiled coldly. “I need you to bring it to me.”
“And why would I do that?” Story folded her arms over her chest.
A branch from the sidhe’s hair glided out in front of her, bearing a single, small acorn. “Because I poisoned Eírnin.”
One of the tattoos on her shoulder coalesced into a live oak leaf, and she plucked it before standing up and holding it out toward Story. “And if you want the antidote, you will bring me what I seek.”
Story lunged for the leaf, but the Autumn Princess was too quick and crushed it in her hand. “You have until winter’s first frost reaches him. Then, he dies.”
Without waiting for a response, Metirreonn disappeared in a scattering of red-gold leaves and sparks.
Six months after arriving in the world of Ailionora, Story finds herself once again on a quest; only this time it is not to save a dying race but the life of the elf she loves. Along the way, she must face the consequences of her previous choices and battle with enemies both old and new while she races against time.

Last but not least, I had the pleasure of writing a guest post for the talented Stuart Jaffe! You can see it here where I discuss what my musical inspirations for writing have been: http://www.stuartjaffe.com/blog/2012/06/guest-post-janine-k-spendlove/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=guest-post-janine-k-spendlove
