Supanova Wrap-Up

I had an absolutely amazing time at Supanova Melbourne with my book, Fyrebyrne Island. I met so many readers and fellow writers. I was so much more exhausted afterwards than I had expected, but it was worth it.

Look at my booth! 

I am so thrilled that I sold all of the copies of Fyrebyrne Island that I had ordered for Supanova, as well as the copies I had ordered for family and friends. I want to say a huge thank you to Steve and James, my helpers over the weekend. You guys rock!

My favourite thing about Supanova is all of the amazing cosplay that people create. I am speechless about the level of talent and creativity I saw in all of the costumes that passed by my booth. I didn't have my phone on me, and just now I've realised how many photos I missed out on getting. Here is a small snapshot of the few my helpers were able to get (holding copies of my book, of course!).

Thank you to everyone who stopped by for a chat, and for filling in the "What Type of Dragon Are You?" questionnaire. The winners for my small competition have been drawn, and will be announced shortly, once I have contacted them all. These cute guys will be heading to homes soon. I will also be creating (in the very near future) an online version of the quiz for anyone who missed out on finding out their dragon type.

Although I didn't have as much time as I would have liked to check out all the other authors' booths, I did sneak off Sunday morning before the doors opened to the public and purchased these little beauties. I cannot wait until I can sit down and have a good binge read of them all.

Book haul:
The Khalada Stone series, by Russell Meek
Surrender, by G.R. Thomas
Wildfire, by C.L. Aire

Lastly, I want to say a very special thank you to fellow authors G.R.Thomas and Alex James for making me feel so welcome at my first ever convention as a writer. Your advice and kind words along the way meant so much to me.

 Here is G.R.Thomas on the left, and the lovely Renee Spryou in the middle.
