Wilma Wednesday: Bone Voyage
This weekend I’ll be a special guest at Kitacon in Coventry, England. I’m honored and excited! If you look at the website you’ll be as amazed as I am at how much they offer. I don’t know what they’ll throw at me and I’m excited to find out. Can’t wait to meet all the nice people I’ve been dealing with on and Skype.
“What is Petrea doing at an anime con?” you may ask. Go to my voice page, scroll down to the anime videos, and say hi to Ryoko.
If I know Wilma, she’ll love having a house-sitter and a professional dog walker while we’re gone, because it means making new friends. We stocked up on treats and dog food, bought her a new toy, and told her to be a good girl.
She said, “Okay, see ya, have fun, bye.” She doesn’t seem too heartbroken about it.
Next week, we’ll be staying in South Cadbury, England, the location of the iron age hillfort known as Cadbury Castle, where I set my novel, Camelot & Vine. I’ve spent years there in my mind—researching, writing, imagining—but I’ve never physically been there. I expect to feel lots of feelings and take lots of pictures.
The week after that, London! It seems like a long trip, though it can never be long enough to see everything I want to see. Yet I already miss Wilma. I’ll be checking in whenever possible to respond to comments, so please say something!
