Con GT is a local convention for us fanatics of the sci-fi shows. It is a Doctor Who convention here in Tennessee, and it was amazing! It isn’t solely centered around Doctor Who, there are other panel’s as well, including Supernatural, Firefly, and Sherlock! The special guest this year was the 6th doctor, Collin Baker, who was kind, down to earth and very funny. He was also sweet enough to ask to be a part of the Doctor Who wedding of two of the con attendees, he was the flower girl. Truly he was! He threw flower petals at guests. But beyond that, the wedding was probably the most amazing one I had ever been to, even better than mine!

But not only did Colleen and I get to meet Collin Baker, we also got to meet amazing authors, writers, and actors! One of the sweetest and fun people we got to hang out with and pick her brain about valuable writing advice, was the beautiful Robin Burks! She is a queen of cosplay and a huge Doctor Who fan! She is the author of Zeus, Inc., The Curse of Hekate, and Return of the Titans!

We also got to meet visionary comedic author Kathleen Cosgrove. She is a local Tennessean like us. She was a gem to learn from and hang out with and talk all about Sherlock! She was also one of the models for the Con’s Cosplay Couture Fashion Show! She is the author of the amazing novels Engulfed and Entangled. 12921051_526667924161182_472597647_n

But the list does not stop there! We got to meet and hang out with the kind and very talented, cosplaying author R. Alan Siler! When we first met him he was dressed up at the 12th Doctor and filled us in on the wonders of attending Gallifrey Con in Anaheim, California. We then got to hear his wonderful advice on writing and publishing from a non-fiction perspective. 12527902_526667860827855_825220799_n He is the author of Doctor Who’s Greatest Hits: An Unauthorized Guide to the Best Stories from Time and Space! 

From there we were introduced to the talented Bob Williams! Also another Tennessean, like Colleen and I. He gave us even more amazing advice on his publishing experience. I am currently in the middle of reading his novel and will be reviewing it here on the blog for all of you! But a Spoiler alert….it’s AMAZING and offers an interesting take on Tennessee’s Music City! Okay, that wasn’t much of a spoiler, but regardless it is a great read! He is the author of Music City Macabre: the Low Lying Lands Saga Volume 1, Pops: A Low Lying Lands Story, Ruby: A Freakshow Friends Story, Smoke, and Magenta. He is also one of the 22 authors of UnCommon Bodies which features the story Ruby: A Freakshow Friends Story.

We also were able to get invaluable advice from New York Times Best Selling Romance author Teresa Medeiros! She was sweet and full of an energy that was a breath of fresh air for upcoming writers like Colleen and me! She is the author many novels, but here is a few that I have on my reading list, Touch of Enchantment, Breath of Magic, and The Vampire Who Loved Me.12919126_526667994161175_961495040_n

In addition to meeting all of these wonderful authors, we also got to be the charismatic, and genuine Bill Breuer! He spent hours talking to us and asking about our writing works and offered wonderful advice to us! He will be one of the people I could spend days talking to and never grow bored! In addition to his cosplay as the 2nd Doctor, he also is a stage actor in Canada and has written some amazing screenplays!

These were some of the kindest and most awesome people I have ever come across. Many of them became fast friends, coffee muses, and writing buddies!

Lastly, no Doctor Who Con would be complete without some weeping angels! Note: They are far less creepy in person! 12899873_526668144161160_195307231_n

Stay tuned for reviews on these wonderful books by these awesome authors!

    One small correction. Uncommon Bodies is an anthology. I am one of twenty two authors in the book. Ruby: A freakshow Friends Story was originally published in UnCommon Bodies.

  2. Very nice. Not only sharing your experience in something that your passionate about, but also this was a great way to network. You met many noted people, talked with them and shared it with your readers and followers. The next thing that I felt was a great path, was informing your readers that you were currently reading a book and would review it here. Your spreading the word about a noted author and showing potential readers and publishers how diverse you are. Just some thoughts.
