My Dragon*Con Schedule

Because it’s never too early to start thinking about Dragon*Con!

Here’s my schedule. Make a note. Write it down. Punch it into your phone. Most importantly, do not miss the reading on Friday, otherwise known as PRINCESS ALETHEA’S TRAVELING SIDESHOW! As before, the first 48 people will get free bags filled with amazing awesomeness. (And by awesomeness, I don’t mean bookmarks and flyers. I mean hardcover books, magnets, buttons, temporary tattoos, bubbles, and much more!)

Convention Dates are Fri(9/2/11), Sat(9/3/11), Sun(9/4/11), and Mon(9/5/11)

——————-

When I am not at these locations (and not walking in the Parade – Sat, 10am), I will most likely be found at JANET LEE’s table in Artists Alley. I will do my absolute best to bring some books to sell…but airplane luggage charges being what they are, coupled with the fact that I sold out quickly last year, please remember that it is always best if you bring your own copies of books for me to sign.

And now I’m going to tease you mercilessly. I’m not going to confirm it, because I don’t have one in my magic little hands yet, but I will be giving away one or two (or three!) of something that you REALLY REALLY REALLY will want to get your hands on. Because it doesn’t come out until next May. *wink*

But you won’t have a chance to get it unless you come see me!

Hypericon Schedule

It’s crazy…I have SO many things I’d like to post about, but my sister worked me like a Draft Horse when I was in Charleston last week, and now I’m in TN with a very short time in which to pack up my entire house…oddly enough, there may be more posts during Hypericon this weekend, when I am forced to sit down and BREATHE.

Speaking of Hypericon, here’s my schedule:

15-MINUTE READINGS: Friday 11:00pm

Saturday 10:30am:
BUILDING THE PERFECT BEAST
Authors discuss how to create the supernatural or man-made baddies for your work – monsters, ghosts, aliens, anything not quite the guy next door.

Saturday 1:00pm
SECONDARY CHARACTERS
Protagonists and Antagonists would be bored and lonely if there weren’t others around to save or terrify. Writers discuss tips on preventing your work from being filled with cliches and cardboard cutouts.
SHERRILYN KENYON, ALETHEA KONTIS, SARA HARVEY, BRIAN J HATCHER, DAVID JACK BELL

SIGNING: Saturday @ 2:15pm

Saturday 6:00pm
THE TRUTH ABOUT ANTHOLOGIES
These writers and editors will discuss anthologies from both sides – how to put one together, how to find and submit to them, what editors are looking for and how they are different from magazines.
RAMSEY CAMPBELL, ALETHEA KONTIS, MICHAEL KNOST, JASON SIZEMORE

SIGNING Sunday @ 10:30am

I will also be showing art at the art show (woohoo!!!!), and for those of you curious about all those awesome hairsticks my sister and I painted last week, those will be on sale at the Apex Table.

See you soon!
