While you're enjoying the conference, be on the lookout for Caridad Pineiro, Willow James/Sara Humphreys and me, Stephanie Julian. We're playing a cut-throat game of who-can-get-the-most-pix-with-readers.
I've got very cool buttons (see that guy below? yeah him. you know you want one) to give away when you get your picture taken with me.

Before she could say something equally short before trying to make her escape, he turned to the man by his side. “Kat, I’d like you to meet Adam Oleksy. Adam is my business partner.”
“Kat. It’s nice to meet you.”
