L. A. Banks' 12 Tribes Convergence Summit

On February 13-15, in Philadelphia, PA, L. A. Banks and hers fans held a three day celebration of the Vampire Huntress Legend novel series. Leslie's 12th book in the series, The Thirteenth, was released and it was a party all weekend. The Devil's Candy Store played a part by sponsoring the Madame Isis sword essay contest. On Saturday night, we gave away a custom-made, Tony Swatton sword to Portia Adams.

It was an honor to part of this author's grand weekend and here are some photos to prove we were there:
