Hey Sherlock fans- have you heard of the Bay Area Sherlock Convention? It's coming up on August 2nd and 3rd in Berkeley. It's a fan-run celebration of Sherlock Holmes and all of the various adaptations of Conan Doyle's detective stories. There's a whole list of awesome guests including Laurie R King (www.laurierking.com/), the author of the Mary Russell and Kate Martinelli detective series (really good books if you haven't read them). There are also going to be members of the local Baker Street Irregulars and some fandom guests including ProfessorFangirl (professorfangirl.tumblr.com/) and MakoKitten (makokitten.tumblr.com/).

There will also be panels, an artist's alley and a handful of artist guests. These guests will include Elsa Chang (elasmosaurus.tumblr.com/), Lava-Alley (lava-alley.tumblr.com/), Anna Padilla (anna-mator.tumblr.com/), Taco (tacoface.tumblr.com/tagged/my+… and myself! 

Pre-registstration is open for ONE MORE DAY (until July 16th). You can register or find out more about the con here on the website: www.bayareasherlockcon.com/ Or here on the tumblr: bayareasherlockcon.tumblr.com/ They are also still open to taking on volunteers. 

I will be tabling with my good friend Ashley Guillory (ashleyrguillory.tumblr.com/). I don't know yet what our table number will be but when I do I'll let you know. Hope to see you there!
