The convention that refuses to quit! #NotCon2017 or otherwise known as the Fan Appreciation Event put on by the folks that run the regrettably canceled Midwest Media Expo. Verneita and Morgan pulled this great event together at the last minute and I can say it was a resounding success. Here are our photos from the weekend! Full recap coming soon, plus an interview with Jon St. John!
Biggest. Convention. Ever.
Was it the biggest convention ever? Probably not. I tried to get attendance numbers but struck out (if you find any, make sure to post in the comments!). However, 2015 had 71,000 guests and I’m positive that the convention has only gotten bigger. So we’re getting close to 6 figure attendance here…
After Dark: Mardi Gras at the Michigan Science Center
The Michigan Science Center brought the French Quarter to Detroit: Jazz, booze and, most importantly, people ready to party!
Marche Du Nain Rouge
Talking about this event is hard. I’m friends with people from all over the world and when I posted the amazing selfies (for real, my selfie game is strong) I took at the event and they asked what kind of party it was, I froze. How could I explain completely seriously that I was at a big celebration to chase a demon out of Detroit? But that’s exactly what happened. Thousands of enthusiastic participants braved the cold and the rain to march through the streets of Detroit to show Nain exactly where he could shove it!
Motor City Tattoo Expo took place the weekend of March 3rd-5th and Motor City Geek was lucky enough to check it out. Even though MCG has been before, this was my first time going. I might now work in a “cool” industry (romance writers have all the fun) I come from a very square accounting background and the entire concept of a tattoo expo was rather foreign to me.
