Come Say Hi to Me at ConnectiCon!

One week from today, I’ll be driving down to ConnectiCon, a big fantasy/sci-fi fan convention in (go figure) Connecticut. There are thousands of people who come to this–from what I hear. It’ll be my first time there. I’ll be presenting at panels, doing a signing, and hanging out with the illustrious Guest of Honor, Brandon Sanderson. I’m hoping to get some Magic playing in, too–since it’s the prerelease weekend and all.

So if you’re going to be in the Hartford, Connecticut area next weekend, why don’t you swing on over to say howdy. Here’s my schedule:

FRIDAY: 6:00p – 7:00p: Last Dance with Mary Sue: How to Write Great Characters – Panel 7

SATURDAY: 10:30a – 11:30a: Fantasy & SciFi Writing 101 – Panel 1

SATURDAY: 2:30p – 3:30p: Worldbuilding in Fantasy & Scifi 201 – Panel 4

SATURDAY: 4:00p – 5:00p – Bryce Moore Autograph Session – Online Media Guest Hall

I might be doing a signing with Brandon on Friday and/or Sunday from 1-2pm, as well. We’ll see how it all shakes out. The Mary Sue panel is with Brandon, as is the worldbuilding one. Friday evening, I’m also planning on playing Magic with Brandon and any other fans who are going to be around. It should be a draft, and it should be awesome.

I’m planning on bringing T-shirts with me that will be for sale, so if you want your glow-in-the-dark reaper fix, you’ll know where to find me.

I think sometimes people who haven’t been to these sort of events are afraid of attending one in person. You shouldn’t be. They’re full of very accepting people celebrating geeky things they love. You meet people of all shapes, sizes, colors, and creeds, and you have a blast over the course of the weekend. This’ll be the first one I’ve gone to that’s this big, but thankfully I just went to ALA, which is three times as big as this, so I’m hoping it feels small.
Anyway–it’s worth the trek if you’re in the area. Drop me a line or message or comment here, and I’ll keep an eye out for you!
