I can't make it to RT Book Convention #RT14. Here's why.
tl;dr = My family's been struggling with a horribly contagious Adenovirus. It gave my 5yo son a really nasty rash, my daughter got pink eye, and now I have the worst case of pink eye I've ever seen, combined with an upper respiratory infection. In short, you don't want to be anywhere near me and my germs. As much as I want to be at #RT14, I refuse to be the Patient Zero who takes down all of publishing with zombieism. I'm so sad and already missing you all!
