C2E2 Celebrity Interview of My Dreams

Well, C2E2 is less than a week away, and I’m excited. Although I’ve been working in TV longer than I’ve been going to conventions, I’ve never attempted to get press access to any of these events until now. I guess it’s because I always use vacation time to go to cons, and no one wants... Read more »
