2012 DogCon

DogCon was an amazing experience. It was our first time hosting an event and it was a lot of fun. We had great food, virtual readings from Michael Arnzen and D. Harlan Wilson, on-site tattooing by Jody Rae Adams, a game of Cards Against Humanity and Zombie Eradication Exercises. In the State of the Dog address we announced a new imprint for Science Fiction Adventure titles and introduced Heidi Ruby Miller as the managing editor.

Dog-themed food included Dog Chow, Red Rovers, bone shaped Rice Krispie treats and chicken salad sandwiches, pupperoni roles, paw print cupcakes and peanut butter puppy cookies
