I was going to come home, unpack, run laundry, import all my pictures, organize all my swag into contest prizes, and prepare an epic blog post detailing all my Comic Con adventures.
Well...I did the coming home part okay. I also opened my suitcase and piled everything into laundry stacks all over my living room. Then I started unpacking all of my swag and ended up making my bed look like a publisher threw up all over it.
And then it hit. That bone tired, I've-been-waking-up-at-5am-and-walking-crowded-halls-ALL-day-for-the-last-four-days exhaustion where your body seems to mushify and you realize you will probably never be able to move again.
So after I sat there on my bed for way too long--debating whether sleeping on top of the swag would damage it and letting my legs fall so deeply asleep they still have pins and needles--I realized my plans had officially crumbled. Then I gathered the swag back into the giant bags, pretended the laundry didn't exist, and now I'm slapping together this pathetic post, begging your forgiveness in advance.
If I tried to write a proper post it would probably look like this:
So for now, all I'll say is that Comic Con was the most bizarre, most crazy, most chaotic four days I've had in a long time, and I promise a full report tomorrow--with pictures of THE COSTUME (in case you didn't see the one I tweeted).
And while I'm nowhere near organized enough to prepare any sort of contest for you guys at this point, I can give you a teasing glimpse of just how much awesome stuff I will have to offer over the next few weeks, months--however long it takes me to give away all this swag:
And this is seriously only part of it. I have a whole other bag of swag, sample chapters, posters, and signed books that I was too tired to break into. Oh, and while I was sneaky enough to turn the books around so you couldn't tell what they are, I will tell you this: a lot of those are ARCs. Highly anticipated ARCs.
So bear with me people. I have awesome things in store, but it may take me a few days to get my ducks in a row. And when I do, there will be much epicness. For now...SLEEP!!!
