Slay-a-thon Update with Nicholas Brendon & Shiai Mata

Here’s a fun little photo from this year’s annual Slay-a-thon, which took place on June 16, 2012.  Much love to Shiai Mata (SlayerLit) and Nicholas Brendon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

“The Slay-a-thon is an annual fundraising event for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  Basically, the participants sit in a private room at a restaurant in Chicago and watch episodes of Buffy and Angel for 12 hours, with games in-between.  They also do silent auctions for books donated by authors to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Full Slay-a-thon details may be had at

    Nick was great…an incredibly down to earth guy. After we took the picture he asked me, “And would you like a hug, too?” I said, “Of course,” and we engaged in a manly embrace. 🙂
