Challenge coin sighting and off to SDCC

By July 8, 2012Comms

Short blog post today. I spent the 4th of July enforcing the water-based security zone for the New York City fireworks. While it was an incredible experience (best view of the fireworks, since I was literally on the Hudson river) it was also exhausting, and left me way behind on my writing. So, two things:

1.) Next week, I’m off to San Diego Comic Con. A reminder of my schedule. I’ve been going to New York Comic Con for years as a fan, and finally getting to speak there and sign ARCs of CONTROL POINT remains one of the highlights of my life to date. San Diego is even bigger, and I will be speaking again and doing two signings this time. Suffice to say I’m psyched as hell and hope to see you all there.

2.) Got a challenge coin pic, this time from my friend Alex stationed out in Hawaii. He’s sending me a challenge coin from his unit, which I’ll post until it arrives. Love seeing a soldier in battle-rattle holding that up. It helps me to imagine him as a SOC operator in support of takedown Coven ready to hunt Selfers!

Thanks Alex! Welcome to the corps.

Remember, your challenge coin gets mine. If you’re in a military, law-enforcement or other challenge coin bearing unit and would like to swap, just shoot me an email.

See you all at SDCC!
