I have just bought plane tickets to Austin, so it appears I am indeed going to WFC. Gotta arrange a hotel room and, y'know, buy the con membership, but the get-Catie-to-Texas aspect has been taken care of. Ted, most unhappily, couldn't get the week off, so I'll be going stag.

Never been to Texas. Don't know if I'll like it.

But now, the important question for the ages: is is possible to get Henry Weinhardt's root beer in Austin? This is of Critical Importance, I tell you!

Also of critical importance is finishing TQB and revising CD by Halloween. That, dare I say, is *more* critical than whether I can get a root beer fix while in Austin, and so I had better get my arse into the office and get to work.

I live in Houston, and I've never seen aforementioned root beer. On a side note, what is it you do that you go to all of these cons?

I am a Famous Writer! It says so on my business cards!

I'm a novelist. :) I write urban fantasy under C.E. Murphy (details at my website, http://cemurphy.net) and action-adventure romance under the byline Cate Dermody.

Fantastic! I'm trying to sell my first SF novel right now! Have you an agent? Any tips? I can e-mail you my number if it would be easier to just chat!

Any help you can render would be awesome!

I do have an agent, and I honestly have no useful tips except persistence. Write good books and be persistent in trying to sell them. That's really what it takes.

Also, what is WFC? How much is it? I have some friends in Austin, so it might be good to show my face.

It's not all that expensive in and of itself, $130 or something, plus hotel and stuff. Come to it! I'll introduce you to some people. :)

Hmmm... I'm poor, so if I make this trip, we would have to hang.

Not that it wasn't obvious, but that was me.
