You can tell me what you think if you'll be going to Bouchercon (Oct 14-17) here in San Francisco. After that I'll be at World Fantasy (Oct 28-31) and Loscon (Thanksgiving weekend). Will I see you at any of these?
I've made 12 broomsticks and 6 Deadly nightshade pendants. My friend Pierce always buys the first of the Pratchett designs as soon as I think of them (usually long before they're carved) so I have 11 of the broomsticks right now. I'm going to keep 6 of them for my shows. I have 6 of the deadly nightshade pendants and I'm keep 3 for the shows. This means that I have 5 Granny Weatherwax broomsticks and 3 deadly nightshade pendants that can be ordered now by my LJ diary readers. (I think from a comment I received after last post that one of the broomsticks is already claimed.)
I was very struck when elisem said that:
At a lot of points in her life, she hasn't been able to afford her own work. A lot of artists can't afford to buy much art, and a lot of people artists love can't afford to buy some of the art they'd love. That's why she really likes having lower price point things that are really cool. It makes it easier for people she loves to have something they love.
So I'm really happy that I can keep the broomstick down around $68 and the deadly nightshade down around $72.
