Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

On August 3, I had the opportunity to attend the Shore Leave Convention, an annual sci-fi con that apparently takes place every year. I’d never heard of it, but the newspaper had a little write-up about it, and when I saw that Silas Weir Mitchell—Monroe from GRIMM—was going to be in attendance, I drove right up!

I wandered around for a while and it was definitely an experience, from the people dressed up to the Tardis booth, there were lots of interesting people and attractions to see. I met Michael Welch while there—Mike Newton from Twilight, among other roles—and had him sign all my Twilight books; he was really chill and nice about it. And cute.


And then I attended an hour long question and answer with Silas Weir Mitchell, and it was amazing. He was funny, articulate, and very much Monroe. It was awesome to hear about how he got his start in acting, how GRIMM actually came to be, and what all his fellow co-stars were like. His mannerisms and facial expressions were the definition of Monroe, and it was so cool to actually see him up close (I was in row 2) and realize how much he really made Monroe his own character. Perfection.


There was a signing a little while after his question and answer session, and so I did get to talk to him just a tiny bit while he signed some photos for me, and you know that I’m always thinking of my blog readers and potential giveaways whenever I go somewhere cool, so you know I got Silas to sign an 8×10 photo of himself just for a giveaway on the blog.
