For those that missed the con but want to live vicariously, Aidee Ladnier storified her wonderful live tweeting of the event here.

Despite being an awkward turtle, I actually managed to meet some people and talk to them. For an introvert like me the sheer amount of people I met is impressive. I wasn't out and about as much as I probably should have been (see: awkward introvert turtle) but for the little that I was, it was definitely worth it. I think for next year, I need a series of T-shirts or a sign that says "I'm shy. Talk to me."

An incomplete list of people I met who were awesome:

Obviously, the wonderful organizers of SMP: Kris, Saundra, and Roger who are all amazingly awesome. It was so cool meeting them in person.

Kassa of Three AM Reviews - One of my two wonderful roomies! I had a great time rooming with her.

Ann Anderson - My other wonderful roomie, and probably the person I spent the most time hanging out with during the con. It was great to spend time with her and I'm looking forward to sharing a room again next year.

Cari Z - I'm in the middle of reading her book Changing Worlds from Storm Moon Press right now and loving it. Aliens! Yay!

Aidee Ladnier - Check out her blog or twitter for an awesome recap of what happened at the con.

Kindle Alexander - I met both halves of this writing duo and they are such sweethearts! I had to pick up one of their books, Texas Pride, when I ordered from Amazon today.

Sue Brown - It was great meeting Sue. She was one of the first people I got to talk to at the convention. I picked up her book, Final Admission, off of Amazon today.

Amanda Ching - Amanda's one of the editor's at Storm Moon Press. She's lovely to work with and she also does freelance editing, so if you're looking for an editor, I can't recommend her enough.

Kathleen Tudor - Another SMP editor, who worked with me on the Tall, Dark, and Wriggly edits. She's a wonderful person and also freelances so if you need editing work done, I also recommend her.

Caethes Faron - She was fun to talk to and a great dinner companion on Thursday when we all went out for Greek. I really need to pick up one of her books.

David Berger - I was on a panel with him and very narrowly beat him at a game of Cards Against Humanity. He probably remembers me as the girl who never left con suite because we always ended up there at the same time.

I'm probably forgetting people so I may add to this list as I remember others...
