I’ll be there. My books will be there. SEANAN McGUIRE WILL BE THERE (So I am told) Lots of awesome authors, gamers, readers, and SFF fans of all kinds will be there. I’ll be participating in some panel discussions that should be fabulous. Check out my schedule below:
- Friday 2:00 PM Stories About Coming up with Characters. Sometimes we deliberately and painstakingly craft our characters, sometimes even excruciatingly pulling out our creativity… and then, other times, the characters drop in on us in the oddest way!
- Saturday 11:00 AM Author Showcase (Session 2) Listen to your favorite authors read excerpts from released and soon to be released works. Find your next great read. Ask questions, and discover the new worlds
- Saturday 12:00 PM Autographing (Session 2) – Author Alley Meet and talk with your favorite authors and rising stars. Purchase books and have them signed.
- Saturday 10:00 PM NSFW 2.0 Sex, violence, strong language; writers discuss their own personal limits on controversial subjects.
