Return from Gen Con 2011

I just got back from GenCon 2011 in Indianapolis this evening and I want to say I had a great time. I’m linking some of my photos from the convention here – (photos). I spent my time at Pittsburgh Comicon sitting with my brother Thomas M. Martin, Jr. and next to authors Jeremy Jaynes on one side and Edward J. Russell on the other. While most of the convention was four days of discussions with people about our books, I also spend some time networking with several interesting people. 

For a little cross promotional purposes I got business cards/contacts from the following:

I also talked briefly to author team Tracy and Laura Hickman of as well as Margaret Weis of . I was thrilled to meet them again since I have been a reader and a fan of their works for many years. 

Overall the GenCon 2011 experience was five days of exciting and draining time spent, but a worth while experience after all I think.  I’m looking forward to my next events, and meeting many more interesting and talented people along the way.

One Response to Return from Gen Con 2011

  1. Hi Kelly, I wonder if you were able to meet V.J. Waks and C.S. Marks? I met them both at a book fair before and they were great fun. Am looking forward to reading V.J. Waks’ Hammerspace soon. I also saw an interesting interview with V.J. on Authorhouse Authors in the Spotlight
    I will definitely check out these other authors too. Thanks very much for the websites!
