Where were you last Saturday?
Hopefully, you were like me. Out buying comic books. And getting even more of them for FREE. Yes, in case you still haven't gotten on board yet, the first Saturday in May is always Free Comic Book Day. It's an opportunity to pick up new stories you haven't read, old favorites you've missed over the years, or to discover a whole new world of geeky goodness.
This year I spent FCBD here in Los Angeles visiting four of my favorite comic retail outlets:
1. House of Secrets
2. Emerald Knights
3. Golden Apple
Much fun was had seeing the crowds, chatting with fans and fellow geeks, and getting tons of... well... free comics. (Okay, I might picked up some no-so-free ones, too, but that's my sickness.) Pictured above are fans dressed as what would be the COOLEST Avengers line-up EVER. Because it also has Superman and Robin! Can you imagine the possibilities? Iron Man and Superman on the same time? Oh, Marvel and DC... put away your differences for once and let me write this fabulous, epic one-shot. Oh, and for a villainous threat, how about a "cosmic"version of The Joker who becomes possessed by the eternal soul of Thanos, then decides to destroy the universe just to see what happens? Now that's chaos. Yeah, I'm down for that. As long as Vixen and Storm can also join the fun, because this team needs a bit of diversity, folks.
OKAY. I'M DONE FANTASIZING FOR THE MOMENT.
As you can see from the pictures above (Meltdown, top, and Golden Apple, bottom), tons of comic book enthusiasts turned out this year. Every shop I visited was packed! I don't know the numbers, but it sure seemed to me like this was the biggest turnout for FCBD yet, at least here in Los Angeles.
Can't. Wait. Until. Next Year!

Going to this year's GALLIFREY CONVENTION in Los Angeles, CA? I am, and I hope to see you there. I've been going to this convention for 20+ years, and a fantastic time is always had by all!
Some of my favorite moments over the years have been chatting with new friends at an impromptu party only to realize halfway through the conversation that it was Sylvester McCoy and Sophie "Ace" Aldred (it was dark and I was just a wide-eyed newbie!), discovering the "all-new" Big Finish audios with their very first release "The Sirens of Time," finally meeting my all-time favorite companion Liz Sladen before she passed away, hearing Nicola Bryant speak for the first time waaaay back in 1993 and discovering--to my shock--that she isn't American (!), listening to the reunited cast of the 1996 movie perform a live running commentary on the film over a decade later, and--of course--listening to Colin Baker pontificate! (I love that guy!).
But the best part about a Gallifrey con are THE FANS. The people who put together and who attend this event are fantastic, fun, and friendly as heck. Because of this, I've made a lot of friends there over the years when attending each convention, and I hope to make many more again this year. In a nutshell, Gallifrey One is a wonderful testament to all-things-great about genre fandom.

Yup. Six new stories featuring your favorite Collins family members from six great writers produced by the awesome Big Finish folks, the same folks that bring you those incredible DOCTOR WHO stories.

You can also order my previous DARK SHADOWS stories. First is THE WICKED AND THE DEAD (a stand-alone story that is also a great place to start listening to the DS collection).

Well, it is THAT time of year already. And while I have been a bit quiet for the last few months, I have NOT been sitting on my collective behind doing nothing. Yes, I have been writing, plotting, and checking a few dream projects off my to do list.
So get ready for some fresh Ewrote product in 2013. There will be announcements along the way, plus signings, appearances, and who knows... maybe even a web premiere or three. Sorry, no spoilers just yet. Happy Holidays for now. Enjoy the new Doctor Who Christmas Special -- I cannot wait to see it!
And then I will see you in 2013... where things will get very, very interesting!
