On the last day of Dragon*Con -- thus guaranteeing me to be tired, brain dead, unfocused, and generally zonked -- I gave a dramatic reading from the first chapter of my book Death From the Skies!, which just came out in paperback and so I shilled it without mercy.
Unbeknownst to me, I was being taped. Normally I would object, but since they didn't catch me scratching anywhere inappropriately, picking my nose, or cursing continuously, I'll let you take a look.
Not bad considering what I had been out very late doing the night before. No, I won't give details, but let's say that an asteroid impact would've felt like a rally. This picture was taken during the jocularity if that gives you any clue.
