Over Memorial Day weekend, I attended ConQuesT 45 in Kansas City. One of my favorite people there was a guest named Selina Rosen who runs Yard Dog Press (Go buy their books). Her brutal honesty and fun loving spirit moved me. Sadly, she wasn’t 100% happy to be there. So, to say thank you to Mrs. Rosen for attending our little Kansas City Con, I wrote a list of ten things I learned from her.
- I’m not gregarious, and I need to be.
- Someone in this world other than my sister thinks that CJ Cherryh is amazing, and I probably ought to give the poor little paidhi-aiji a second chance.
- Big publishers like to piss on the little guy.
- Authors should go to cons for the fun, and not the book sales.
- I like her, so I should read her book. 🙂
- Authors compromise to make a buck.
- It feels good to stop compromising when you realize that you’re not going to make a buck either way.
- Sometimes, it okay to pull your pants down to your ankles in a public setting.
- I wish I were cool enough to be part of an “Avalanche of Gay,” but alas, I am not.
- Selina Rosen looks damn good in a hat.
Thanks for being there for me, Selina. You rocked it.
