Days of the Dead Indianapolis is almost here. Later this week, Cuzz Gekas and I will be venturing down to Indy for this yearly convention.
There are currently four Days cons, one each in Atlanta, Indy, Chicago and Los Angeles. I have been going since the first one in Indy in 2012. This is one of the few "can't miss" conventions on my calendar.
One reason I love Days is the quality of celebrity guests. They always have a handful of big names and a bunch of lesser-known, but very interesting celebs.
I love meeting anyone who is interesting. One such example was Wyzae Crankfield. I admit, I knew nothing of him when I saw him on the celeb guest list. I did some research and found some interesting stuff. He is a composer and an actor.
He responded quickly and positively to my interview request. He seemed to be very articulate and thought-provoking. I was happy to learn that he was the real deal in person. I totally enjoyed meeting him and interviewing him at the convention. That interview can be found at On the Beat with Wyzae Crankfield.
Wyzae wasn't the only pleasant surprise. I always meet authors, artists and others who have interesting stories and fascinating projects. This is why I love Days of the Dead and this is why you will love it, too. I hope to see some of my readers there!
