Black SF 2012 Author Panel was Standing Room Only

Black SF 2012 Author Panel was Standing Room Only

I almost turned around and walked away from Dragoncon. I waited for three hours in a line wrapped around the Sheraton Hotel. Both my husband and I were exhausted, hot, and tired.  What kept me going were the energetic people around me. They were dressed in costumes, laughed loudly, and were there to have a great time. 

I'm so glad that I stayed. Dragoncon was an amazing adventure.  I enjoyed meeting all those neat weirdos, hanging out with my fabulous writing buddies, and participating in the State of Black Science Fiction author panel. I was proud and excited to be seated with LM Davis, Alan Jones, Wendy Raven McNair, and Milton Davis.  I think we shared our viewpoints and opinions well. What I enjoyed was that we each had our own unique ideas and were able to share our diverse opinions. If you'd like to take a look, here's the Youtube video. BTW, feel free to leave a comment or post, if something about the panel made you think.
