It’s time for DragonCon! Here’s where I’ll be …
(… When I’m not in the halls looking at all the costumes because zOMG costumes. Honestly, anyone comes up to me cosplaying from Updraft? I would fall right over and probably tell them all the secrets. Just sayin’.)
Also, Updraft is up for a Dragon Award (YA/MG category) – it’s a great list with many great authors on it! Voting registration deadline ends tomorrow (9/27) – make your choices heard!
