“Writing for Anthologies” panel at Dragon*Con

Back from Dragon*Con. Still dazed and stunned from not enough sleep. Longer, more coherent update later.

Nancy Knight, the director of the Writers Track, was great and let the Phobos squad squeeze onto the “Writing for Anthologies” panel on Sunday. Despite being terrified (and the room was full!) I think it went pretty well.

I was on a panel with Robert Asprin, Janny Wurts, and Sherrilyn Kenyon! Plus Ann Crispin called a break during her Advanced Writers Workshop to swing by with members of my DC2K writing group to give me moral support.

Anyway, pix:

From left to right:
Lawrence Barker, Robert Asprin, James Maxey (Phobos novelist and contest winner), Keith Olexa (Phobos in-house editor), me, Janny Wurts.

Check out the books in front of Keith. They’re James’ Phobos novel Nobody Gets the Girl and Pixeltown.

It was a very full panel. Wendy Webb moderated but I’m not sure if Matthew got a pic with her in it.

Me, Janny Wurts, Sherrilyn Kenyon

Me and Janny Wurts laughing at something Robert Asprin said.

I also sold a stack of Hitting the Skids in Pixeltown in the ten minutes after the panel. I’m so glad I thought to bring a bunch of them with me. Keith brought my contributor’s copies with him to the con so I had a mess of them to sell. They’re gorgeous. Absolutely beautiful. And I got to autograph them! Rah!

Too tired to type. Sleep now.

But before I forget, wanted to give mad props to fahkingnut and Glenn5 for volunteering to staff the Daily Dragon. You guys rawk!

Must. Sleep. Now.

    All I can say is that I am glad it was you up there. I know I was joking about you freezing up and only being able to remember words like, “umm, err, huh”, but if it had been me I would have been all fan boi. Both, Robert Asprin, and Janny Wurts have several signed novels on my book shelf.

    I am hoping that as soon as Cassy and I can afford new books that we can start adding yours to our collection. I just hope it is before I have to stand in a long line to get you to sign it.

  6. Are you aware that //‘s world came crumbling down… ?

    Hey, I attended the panel and really enjoyed it. I thought I recognized your face, but didn’t figure out that you (who are on the friends list of several of my friends) are the same person who also posts to the Rumor Mill. Doh. Nice to not quite meet you.

    Congrats on the microSHOCKS sale, by the way. 🙂

    One of the best things about going to these panels is forming my list of hey-those-sound-cool new books that I’m going to buy. Got “Hitting the Skids” about third down.

      Hi! You were there at the panel? Coolness! You probably remember it better than I do . . .

      You hang out on the Rumor Mill as well? Pleased to not-quite-metcha too. Maybe one of these days we can drop the “not quite” part. I “friended” you, hope you don’t mind.

      And thanks for the congrats!

        I was in the front row, I think – I was the person who mentioned having sold greeting cards. It was fun. I really enjoyed it – can’t think of a panel I didn’t enjoy this weekend, actually.

        You hang out on the Rumor Mill as well?

        Yeah, I’m listed as “Sheri Stanley” over there.
