Hey all – by the time you read this I will either be on my way to Columbus for the RT Booklovers Convention or will have arrived. This is my 4th year going and I can’t wait!
Here’s my schedule for those of you who’ll be there or who are local and want to stop in at the booksiging on Saturday (open to the public!):
Wednesday at 10 am: Digital Publishing Workshop with Angela James – over 2 hours of Q&A session on everything Digital publishing! Have questions? Come on over and ask em!
Wednesday at 2:30 – SF FOR FEMMES: WRITING CHARACTER-DRIVEN STORIES WOMEN WILL DEVOUR
WEDNESDAY: To attract female readers you must have captivating characters, not blind them with science. Our panel of experts will teach you how.
Captain: Ann Aguirre Panelists: Lauren Dane, Colby Hodge aka Cindy Holby, Stacey Klemstein aka Stacey Kade, Lucienne Diver (The Knight Agency)
Wednesday at 3:45 THE ONLINE AUTHOR PERSONA: HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS, INFLUENCE PEOPLE & AVIOD TRAIN WRECKS
WEDNESDAY: The Internet offers many opportunities for authors to interact with readers, network with industry professionals and promote effectively. On the flip side, all that freedom brings opportunities to make mistakes that can tarnish a reputation for years. Come listen to strategies and advice from authors who’ve made the Internet work for them and learn how to avoid cyber-disasters.
Panelists: Ann Aguirre, Lauren Dane, Sylvia Day aka S.J. Day, Mark Henry
Then I pass out for a while and gear up to see my friends and have dinner, etc!
Thursday I’m going to be Megan Hart’s plus one at the awards ceremony so I can hoot and clap like a hick when she accepts her award.
And then on Saturday from 11 – 2 I’ll be signing Relentless, Laid Bare and Coming Undone at the bookfair with a giant gathering of some of my very favorite authors.
Hope to see you there!
