A nifty box of [livejournal.com profile] leviosa2016 swag was waiting for me when I got back from vacation! And I have no idea why this photo is sideways on LJ when it looks normal on my computer.

There is one thing I still don't feel comfortable about - do I go as the 'real me' or as Oakstone? I'd be intersted in hearing how other people handle their identities at cons. If I go as the real me, I know I'll feel compelled to share my pseud during fandom discussions, etc. then the two things are linked which I don't feel comfortable with - especially since I'm hoping to have my manuscript for my YA novel finsihed soon.

Thinking about Leviosa in Las Vegas next July and decided to look at the temps there right now - Holy Mackerel it is hot there. Definitely will need a stay cool plan - but with everything being at the one resort maybe not so much need to go outside.

I just signed up for Leviosa - and am kind of excited even though it is a bazilion days away. I signed up tonight because I wanted to help them make their IndieGoGo campaign goal.

Here are some numbers put together by  [livejournal.com profile] bonsaibetz at Leviosa By The Numbers: 3 Day Left for our IndieGoGo campaign

Here are some numbers regarding Leviosa:

447 days left until Leviosa starts
6 Tracks featuring Academic, Fandom, Slash & Queer Lit, Creativity, YA Lit and Writing programming
10 rooms for programming at Green Valley Ranch
580 capacity in our largest programming room, theater style seating, so plenty of seating to see our big draw panels and special guests
8 authors and HP guests we've booked as special guests so far (many more HP guests will be booked in the coming months)
2 literary agents we have booked for our Writing Track so far
