The way I look at it, Stella is doing an awesome job to ensure the authors will be there, the readers will be there, and we'll all mingle at the opening, in workshops, while eatting and so on.
Personally, I'm arriving early (August 5) to take advantage of the city and relax before the conference starts.
I'm also planning a few sightseeing trips of my own to just go out and explore while I wait for the conference to start and during the conference when there's nothing I want to attend. (Well, ok I want to attend everything and sightsee and meet everyone.).
So my suggestion to everyone is: make new friends, mingle, and explore New Orleans with others or alone.
As for me, I plan to do the Vampire Tour a few days early ---Did it 3 years ago and it was such fun. Plus there's a gorgeous tour guide that makes me think I'm walking with a Vampire. *grins*
And I'm planning to go to the BDSM club they have in New Orleans and explore D/s Cajun style. *big grins*
If anyone wants to join me, wants to BS, or just wants to have fun and walk around the city while we wait for the conference to start or want to explore during the conference, please let me know. I'm friendly and only bite on Tuesdays and days that end in "Y".
Thanks Stella for putting this event together and getting such great rates for the hotel.
