For those of you planning to frolic with Sir Patrick Stewart & René Auberjonois this weekend in Houston: I just wanted to let y'all know that I toooooo will be at Comicpalooza, aka the Texas International Comic Con. My schedule is:
- Friday, May 24, 5pm - 6pm: Read Aloud and Q&A (Room 340, Children's). I will also be taking questions about my DC Universe Online and Wizard 101 voiceovers -- and the anime ones, though I don't remember those very well!
- Saturday, May 25, 10am - 11am: The Bumpy Lumpy No Good Road to Publication (Panel Room 6) with Deborah Frontiera, Dottie Enderle, Lane Riosley, Hayley Gompertz, Katherine Catmull. Good luck? Talent? A great story? Perseverance? An agent? Or just doing it yourself? There are many paths to publication, as these authors can attest.
- Sunday, May 26, 11 AM - Noon: Middle Grade: Caught Between Children’s and Young Adult (Panel Room 4) with Katherine Catmull, and Deborah Frontiera. What separates Middle Grade from Children’s and Young Adult? Are there rules? How are the heroes/heroines different? Discover what these authors have to say about their love for writing Middle Grade.
Come talk to me/us! That last one is an especially interesting question to me.
I have never been to a con so I am excited, especially about the cosplay, which I think is awfully cool (how big a nerd do you have to be to think cosplay is awfully cool? Well that is how big a nerd I proudly am!)
