Okay...so I'm thoroughly convinced that I want to go to Bouchercon, which is the conference for mystery writers of America held an hour away from my house. I know that I can conjure up the $150 to go, but the problems are as follows: 1. How am I going to get there, 2. How am I going to get back, 3. Where am I going to stay?
I can't stay at home because it would be annoying and unthoughtful to ask my parents to drive four hours every day for four days to take and pick me up. I can't drive. I can't stay there because I don't have 300 extra dollars to drop on a hotel reservation either.
Until all three of these problems are sorted out, there's no way that I'm going to be able to go to Bouchercon. If you're going there and have any ideas, please comment here! I want to go so badly but I have no idea how I'm going to stay there for four days.
Also, today I crossed a landmark in my sales--300 copies of Double Life have been sold, and the ball is rolling faster. I'm thinking of setting up another signing at Waldenbooks in the mall--should be fun and I think I'd sell quite a lot!
