Everything went smoothly. I flew into Atlanta on Thursday night, and hit the ground running on Friday morning when the convention opened. I had two panels on Friday, one on James Bond and one on the top Science Fiction films. I stayed after on each panel and signed/sold books to fans based upon what I had said during the panels. My degree of expertise was more than on display there. I was in the Dragon Con parade on Saturday morning with a group of James Bond fans, marching behind Bond girl Trina Parks who road in a convertible. I met Trina last year. She played Thumper in Diamonds Are Forever. Sunday morning, I had an autograph session, and sold nearly all of my books there, including copies of Intimate Bondage from Bellbridge. In the afternoon, another James Bond panel, and sold out completely on the Bond book. In the evening, I was on an X-track panel for The X-Files, and sold my few remaining copies of Murder on Air Force One. For the last couple of years, I’ve spoken on the X-track about the Truman documents, the Military-Industrial Complex and the Roswell crash, and of course those are featured in the story of Murder on Air Force One. People remembered my talks and asked to buy copies of the book. Another panel on Monday morning, and I sold more books. I returned home with just three books, and when I started out, I had a filled bag of luggage with 48 books. An excellent weekend for selling and promoting. I’ll need to get restocked prior to the Miami Book Fair in November. But I was very pleased to have the books on hand to sell to my avid readers. Overall, a very good weekend. Dragon Con is my favorite convention!
