DetCon1 – The Aftermath
It was a great convention, with good quality panels and panelists, and lots of fun at parties at night (and in some cases, great beer!). The volunteers and ConCom were fantastic as well. I was well fed by the con suite, all told. Plus the hotel was futuristic-looking and pleasant… the spaces felt good. There were food and drinks for all budgets available; however, it being mainly an office building things weren’t open as widely on the weekend. Still, that is a minor complaint.
I also gave away every last business card that I had, so it’s time to order more. Hopefully I’ll hear from some of these people, whether they want to hire me or not. I still love making new friends and networking.
NetRoots Nation 2014 was also in the building, and I was delighted to share a space with such a cool group. We weren’t there on Thursday, but Joe Biden spoke on Thursday, and Elizabeth Warren spoke on Friday. Wooo. 🙂
I also got a couple of blog post topic requests, so there will be more Book Marketing without B.S. columns coming–finally! Indeed, if you have any suggestions, please ask in the comments or email me, and I’ll add it to my list.
So for now, I am working on publicity and social media for clients, and enjoying getting a bit more sleep. It was a good convention. I look forward to the next one, which is likely Can*Con in Ottawa.
