Having been their Toastmistress (in 2007) and their Chairman (in 2003), I'm really dead thrilled to be attending BayCon 2009 in San Jose, California as a published author (May 22nd-25th). Think of it as sort of like showing up for your high school reunion after conquering Madagascar. I'M THE LEMUR QUEEN, BITCHES. Er, ahem. Or something like that, anyway. Besides, my beloved jennifer_brozek
is this year's Toastmistress, which should be awesome. (Jenn is editor of Grants Pass
, aka, "what if we threw a plague and EVERYBODY came?", and owns three of the craziest cats I've ever met.)
I'm reasonably lightly-booked this year, which is a nice change, and my scheduled panels so far include...
11:30 AM: Zombies Are Coming!
11:30 AM: Iron Poet.
1:00 PM: What's Your Post-Apocalypse Plan?
1:00 PM: Writing For the Long Run
As always, I'm assuming that there may be some last-minute additions and subtractions to this slate, but that should give you a reasonably good idea of where I can be found. I won't be giving a concert this year, sadly, as there just wasn't time to get together with any of my assorted guitarists and rehearse, but I will have copies of all three CDs, both in the dealer's hall and on my person.
I'll be bringing a few precious copies of the Rosemary and Rue
ARC with me to the convention for the adventurous to wheedle out of me (clues on how to do your wheedling are yet to come). Hope to see you there!
