ConCarolinas, it is a great little scifi/fantasy con held annually in Charlotte. This year the con will be held on June 4-6th, and it looks like a bunch of great panels, events, and guests (ahem) have been lined up. If you plan on attending the con, look for me at the following panels:
- 06:00 pm A Character`s Best Friend: Creating familiars and other animal sidekicks.
- 08:00 pm Scary Monsters and Super Freaks: Creating monsters in your writing - and where have all the scary monsters gone?
- 9:00 am I`ll Write It Tomorrow: How to keep a good writing work ethic. Do not put off until tomorrow what you can write today!
- 1:00 pm Steampunk Literature: How steam is taking over the writing world! What steampunk books should you be reading?
- 7:00 pm Why We Love Our Vamps: Why vampires are no longer the evil creatures of the night but are now the boys next door.
- 8:00 pm I Like the Dark: The appeal of dark fantasy and how to write it.
- 3:00 pm Gimme a Break: What are the best ways a beginner can break into the writing business?
- 4:00 pm Don`t Be a Noob: Common mistakes beginners make when starting in the writing business.
Looks like I'll be busy. ^_^ When I'm not speaking on panels, I do have a table where I'll be signing books (and most likely selling books) and giving away freebie items. Please, if you see me at the table, stop by and chat. If I get lonely/bored at the table, I'm likely to abandon it and go play at the con.
Well, I hope to see a lot of you at the con. Check back for more updates, and of course that promised post on SPWF!
