Received my Dragon*Con guest schedule. Here’s what I’ll be doing when I’m not shackled to my desk at Daily Dragon headquarters:
• Friday 9/4, Noon: Guest lecture – “Marketing Short Fiction” for Ann Crispin’s Beginner Writers Workshop.
• Saturday 9/5, 1PM: “Y’all vs. You Guys: Regional SF and Fantasy” – Southern science fiction/fantasy is often a genre to itself. Other parts of the world have their own flavor. Fairlie (Hyatt).
• Saturday 9/5, 4PM: Autograph signing. M301-M304 (Marriott).
• Sunday 9/6, 2:30PM: “Bite Me!” – The First Ladies of the Fang discuss trends in vampire fiction…and maybe more! (Moderator) Regency VI – VII (Hyatt).
The vampire one is the first panel I’ve ever moderated so I’m rather nervous about it. It’s also in one of the big, main programming rooms, so strike “nervous” and insert “strangled by butterflies.” Yeah. I’ll be doing some research beforehand for that one…
Hoping to catch at least one between my own panel madness. 🙂 Meanwhile, wanted to say “Beautiful Winter” was a wonderful fairy tale turnaround. Bravo!
Yay! I’m thrilled you enjoyed “Beautiful Winter”! Hope to see you at Dragon*Con!
Moderating gig will be so easy for you! Will have to recruit some cheering fans.
*snarf* I’m thinking less “easy” on the moderating and more “hyperventilating-Eugie-caught-in-headlights-panicky-brain-paralysis,” but what’s a little public humiliation in the name of promoting writers and their work ?
You will do WONDERFULLY as a moderator. I remember the first time I ever saw you – You were speaking at Ann’s course the year I attended. You did a fine job, for all the nerves you had about it 🙂
Besides, all you really have to do is make sure everyone else is speaking, and prompt them if they aren’t! 😀
