Hullo chums! I am returned from Sydney Supanova. It was lovely to meet some of you excellent reader-y people. I sold books to Old Gregg from The Mighty Boosh and the Corinthian from the Sandman comics and to lovely ordinary people and lovely dressed-up people and it was all NEAT.
I look totally bemused in this photo because it is very strange to me that I continue to have people act like I’m some kind of legitimate creator or something, rather than a weird lady who makes up stories in her brain.
I had a bottle of True Blood (or TruBlood, or whatever way it’s spelled by people who are precise about these things) for breakfast on Saturday. It’s actually just slightly tart Fanta with a lot of caffeine in it. No, really.
Audrey Fox was selling A4-sized commissions for $10 at our table. We hit a lull during the morning, where she didn’t have a customer, so I commissioned her to draw me Jay and Blake.
This is the picture Audrey drew f0r me.
This is a picture Audrey took on Sunday morning, as myself (in black) and Erinna (in red) set up the table for the second day of the convention.
I got to meet Eliza Dushku! Woo! And I didn’t start quoting bits from Bring It On or tell her that Faith has been my role model since I was seventeen. So I count that as a win.
I saved the best picture for last. This is theonlytwin, dressed up as Gretchen. LOOK AT HER. How excellent is she, seriously? I am so delighted. Cosplay makes my whole life sing.
So that was my weekend, and a jolly lovely time it was too. To those of you who bought books, I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. Actually, I hope you enjoy them even more than that, because sometimes writing isn’t nearly as much fun as I hope you have reading.
Clearly I should stop typing now and go to bed. Back to the day job tomorrow. It will be so sad to return to a world where nobody is playing dress up in public.

If you’re coming to the Supanova convention in Sydney this weekend, you’ll be able to pick up the first three Wolf House novels (in both digital format on very pretty USB data sticks and a very, very small promotional run of paperbacks which I’m selling at-cost, because I’m just marvelously good to you like that) and also the following three posters in A3 and A4, with art by Audrey Fox and text by me.
If you can’t get to Supanova, here are the posters for download. The files are over a megabyte each, but they’re terribly nice to look at.

It’s a totally amazing line-up — I’m especially excited for Eliza Dushku and Allan Hyde myself, as Faith is one of my favourite vampire hunters in the history of ever, and Godric is exactly the kind of vampire I find fascinating. Hooray!
