Greetings, Programs! It's convention season and I'm stoked as hell for Phoenix Comic Con and CONvergence. If you come to one of these shows we can see one another and hang out and have chai and and and! IT WILL BE SO AWESOME, my minions. AWESOME I TELL YOU! So, I've got my Phoenix Comic Con schedule! It goes a little something like this:
- Breaking Those Writers Blocks : Friday 12:00pm - 1:00pm - We'll be talking about how to get through the slog that is the bane of every author's life at one point or another.
- Author Signing M. L. Brennan, Max Gladstone,Melissa Marr,Jamie Wyman, Bennett Coles,Wesley Chu : Friday 1:30pm - 2:30pm - The group of us will be signing stuff, chatting, hanging out and generally making merry.
- Have Your Writing Critiqued - The First Page - Can You Make The Cut? : Saturday 3:00pm - 4:00pm - Be afraid, the Pajamazon is sitting this one out and the Word Dominatrix is taking center stage.
- Author Signing: Jamie Wyman, Max Gladstone,Chuck Wendig,Naomi Novik,Stephen Blackmoore,C.J Hill : Saturday 4:30pm - 5:30pm - Second verse same as the first. Little bit faster and a whole lot worse.
- Outside Influences : Sunday 12:00pm - 1:00pm - Talking about how characters can be influenced by outside forces in and out of the manuscript.
- Mythology : Sunday 3:00pm - 4:00pm - Talking about that old time religion, baby.
At any given time that isn't these I will be gallivanting around the convention spreading pink-haired joy and silliness to all who want free hugs, movie quotes and pick pocketing. I mean, um... forget that last one. *Jedi fingers*
For those who've asked:
YES, there will be copies of WILD CARD and UNVEILED available at the Mysterious Galaxy bookstore on site at the convention, however, those copies will be extremely limited in number. You can order them online right now and bring them to the con and I'll sign them, or you can hope you get one before they sell out. (Because when they sell out I won't be able to magic some into being until well after the convention is over and we'll all be sad pandas that you don't have a signed copy. No sad pandas!)
I'm told that there will be some copies of the anthologies I appear in, but again, I can't guarantee much stock there.
Also, through June 1, if you buy the paperback of WILD CARD, the re-release ebook is free on Amazon.
So yeah... Phoenix Comic Con is going to be awesome. Hopefully I'll have a schedule for CONvergence soon, too.
