I am here in beautiful Batesville, Arkansas; nestled at the foot of the Ozark Mountains, enjoying my first convention as a professional writer/editor.

It is an extreme honor not only to meet the fans, but also my fellow creators within the new pulp field face to face for the first time.The weather and the people are both nice and for the debut of such a prestigious event, things been swell at Pulp Ark.
I am tired, but in a positive way, over everything going on.
So without further ado, I would like to share a few photos with you.

A lot of us are meeting for the first time face to face, because Pulp Ark 2011 was our very first convention as professional authors!
So this photo pretty much sums up the spirit of the convention. That is Ken Janssens (Aloha McCoy, Sherringford Bell, The Cerberus Clan) and me, but the hat fit a lot better before my last haircut.
Ken and his fiancĂ©e Christina came all the way from CANADA to attend the convention! Thus Pulp Ark was not only his first professional convention, but his first American appearance as well!
