I’m heading to Atlanta the day after tomorrow for Dragon*Con, and frankly I am totally psyched. Can’t wait. I’ll be catching up with tons of old friends, and hopefully making some new connections. I will also be appearing on several panels and doing a reading of something from the THIEFTAKER universe — don’t know what yet. My revised schedule is below. My 11:30 panel is a late addition, and so I might not be on the list of panelists in your programs or on the D*Con app. But I’ll be there. Promise.
When I’m not on panels, I will be signing and selling books and t-shirts in the Marriott Marquis Dealer’s Room, booth 100-102 (Tairen’s Lair/Author’s Lair). So, I hope that you’ll come and find me at one venue or another.
