I'm so fucking excited for Phoenix Comic Con. I didn't think I was going to be able to go. Then 2 weeks ago, I got word that my husband and I have the ability to ROCK IT! So, while I won't be at Phoenix Comic Con in a professional capacity (this year), I will totally be all over the place. If you're going to be at the Con, come find me, say hi and have some fun. Here's a rundown of where I'm going to be. NOTE: I WILL NOT BE PARTICIPATING IN ANY OF THE PANELS AS A PANELIST/PROFESSIONAL. I will only be at the Con as a fan due to the fact that I didn't think I'd get to go, so I didn't pursue the Author track. (Yes, I'm kicking myself for that. Hard.)
6:00pm - Books & Authors Kickoff
12:00pm - Cherie Priest Spotlight 3:00pm - Author Chair Dancing 6:00pm - friend's bachelorette party 9:00pm - You will either find me watching my friends perform at the Talk Nerdy To Me Burlesque Show OR the Captain's Cantina: Zocalo at Babylon 5 event. Considering the bachelorette and partiers...my money is on the burlesque show.
It should be noted that during the day on Friday I will also be taking my daughter to some youth panels. We have yet to plot out an exact schedule for her. It should also be noted that her teacher is awesome. K told her teacher that Comic Con was this week and her teacher flat out told her, "You don't have to come to school if you're doing that." Seriously! So she'll be enjoying a day with the folks, cosplaying and getting her little geek on as well.
10:30am - Panel - "I've Sold My First Novel. Now What?" 12:00pm - Panel - "Magic Methods" 1:30pm - Panel - "Different Approaches to Non-Traditional Fantasy" 5:00pm - Panel - THE BABYLON 5 REUNION *happy dance* 9:00pm - "It's a Trap!" Trivia Game -- Tentative. I may have other engagements depending on what some of my friends are doing that night.
I don't intend to be doing any of the autograph or photo op lines, so any time that I'm on-site and not in one of the above events I will either be found in the gaming area or in the exhibitor's hall checking out costumes and saying hi to friends. If you want to meet up and say hey, chill or catch a panel, SAY HI. Easiest way? Email me! Jamie@JamieWyman.com
So yeah. I'll be busy and spending lots of time in the car to and from the Con, but I'm so damn happy to be going.
Peace out, guys. I've got stuff to plan and prep.
