Polaris as usual was a blast. Nice people, good panels, great staff, and the folks at the hotel were very nice to us all as well. I stopped one of them on my way out to thank them for the great work they did to make us all comfortable.
My highlight of the weekend was when one fan attending one of the panels dragged a friend forward and said that she 'd bought my book the year before and liked it so much she'd convinced her friend to buy it, too. That's the kind of word of mouth I love to hear.
Got to hang out with some nice writer types, got to see some actors, and got to have a great time while talking up Small Magics and Cold Magics, which I am going to work hard to have ready early next year, rather than late. I want to have something new to show all the good folks come 2010.
A great time, and if any of the Polaris organizers are reading this, thank you!
