They say what is played in Vegas stays in Vegas, but not with this group! What we shared in Vegas must be shared with all our readers! As they say…it was Fabulous!
It wasn’t only the thrill of the Star Trek Convention, seeing the stars of our most beloved television/movie series up close, getting the autographs, seeing the shows, or even winning on the one armed bandits ( which now, by the way, are all computerized…I kinda miss walking around with my bucket of nickles) or the black jack tables. Being at Quark’s for lunch and going through the Star Trek Experience ( which sadly will close it’s doors forever on September 1,2008..[PS~ Thanks Tribble] ) was an absolutely overwelming well, experience, with memories I will treasure for many years to come.
All this was breathtaking, but I must say for me, meeting and actually shaking the hands of the writers I have been closely linked to for a year now by my online connection, topped the butterflies-in-the-stomach-o-meter for sure! It was an inspiring and laugh filled time, and we had a hard time parting. For me a week just wasn’t enough. These people and their spouses are linked to me like brothers and sisters. It was wonderful to note that not just the authors/friends I met in person were into this “writing thing” 100 per cent, but our spouses were as well! We all became instant friends, instant family.
How could anything be more perfect? Well, for me, it can’t. Everything we do from this point on will give me reason to sit down at this keyboard everyday and write my heart out. Because I am not only pleasing you, the reader, I am pleasing my friends: my fellow authors.
Know this, dear reader: because we are commited to our craft, it will make anything you read from this group something you won’t be able to put down. But also knowing that behind the scenes there are friends and compadres who are committed to one another, will not only make our efforts a good read for you, it will make it inspired perfection from the first turn of page one to the exciting conclusion!
