The TV show Supernatural debuted on my birthday in 2005. I’d seen the commercials for it and thought it looked like something I would love. It appeared to be a show that would be like a mini horror movie every week. I love horror movies. And the two stars weren’t hard to look at either. I watched that first episode and fell in love with the series. I’ve been watching ever since, all eleven seasons. And season twelve has just started.
I’m a Dean girl. Both brothers are great but there’s just something about Dean that appeals to me. He’s funny, cocky and extremely sexy. He’s such a great character. The show works because of the relationship between the brothers. Family is everything for them and they just have each other.
I didn’t realize until relatively recently that there were Supernatural conventions. I joined a bunch of SPN groups on Facebook and people were posting pictures of themselves with the stars of the show. I loved seeing the pictures and envied the people who got them. I quickly found out they were taken at conventions. Fans purchased photo ops. Years ago I wrote a piece on my own blog about me not agreeing with paying for pictures with stars. All the pictures I’d taken of celebrities had been free. Some of the stars that appear at conventions make quite a lot of money from the photo ops and autographs. Unless I sell a screenplay and Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester on the show) ends up starring in it, AND I get to be on set, there was no way I was going to meet him. Unless I went to a convention and got a photo op.
So…I bought a ticket to the Toronto Supernatural Convention! I bought photo ops and everything. I figure it will be my one and only chance to meet the cast so I went all out. The package I bought includes autographs. I’m trying to figure out what I should bring for them to autograph. I have a few options. A TV Guide from October 2005 with the stars on the cover. A Supernatural bag my husband got me for my birthday last year. One of the scripts I wrote for the show that were just for me. Or something else.
What about you? Would you go to a convention for your favourite show? What would you bring to have autographed?

A road trip without a plan sounded like a good idea when Lena and her friends hit the road. After hours of driving in the heat in a cramped car they’re all ready for something to eat and a good night’s rest.
Reflections Inn looks perfect for the group of friends. A little run down, it hides a supernatural horror. A curse that replaces people with their repressed alter egos forces the friends to fight for their lives. Duplicates who lack restraint, crave gratification emerge from the mirrors. Too late they realize they didn’t know each other as well as they thought.
One by one, Lena’s friends learn the truth about their repressed emotions, their suppressed violent urges.
What doesn’t kill them can only make them stronger.
