The first weekend of June, I had the displeasure of staying at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Spokane, WA. I was vending at the Lilac City Comicon at the Spokane Convention Center and chose to stay at the convention hotel–a mistake I won’t make again.

Back in 2017, our first LCCC, we stayed at the same Doubletree Hotel (also as a Hilton Honors member). Our first night there, we chose to eat...

Making Connections: 3559. AMASKAN'S BLOOD by Raven Oak 8 61 Mar 19, 2015 07:56AM  
Andrew  Boyd
“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.”

Somehow I totally missed this question! Eek!
Writing is going well! Amaskan's Blood is coming out in January and I've got a sci-fi novel coming out in the summer of 2015. How about you?
Are you talking about the ECWC or Emerald City Comicon?
