Don’t get me wrong, it would be great to be there, soak up the atmosphere and network with people in the erotic writing sphere.
I just feel that with ticket prices so high (cheapest now seems to be £90 each for a single day), I feel I can put that money to better use.
It’s not that we (my girlfriend and I) couldn’t afford the ticket prices; more that I couldn’t really justify the ticket prices, petrol/train fare and probably a stay over locally too – when that money could be spent on the family. The children are obviously top priority!
I really hope that you all have much fun at Eroticon 2013, meeting up with old and new friends and enjoying being in the company of like-minded folk.
We will hopefully be attending ETO (the Erotic Trade Only show) where entrance is free and I can network with a few of you there.
Of course if any companies wish to sponsor us as Eroticon 2013 attendees, they would be more than welcome to contact me. *winks*
