I’m heading down to Gen Con on Thursday, which should be tremendous fun. I’ve been once before, and while it’s a little overwhelming, I also get to hang out with a lot of friends and generally wonderful people I don’t see very often. I’ll be part of the Writers Symposium, doing panels and workshops and such, and I’ve got a few autographing times as well. I’ll have books to sell, and will also be happy to sign whatever you’d like to bring.
The full schedule looks like so.
3 p.m., Room 2 – Should You Plot or Not?
4 p.m., Dealers Hall – Signing Tables
Friday10 a.m., Room 1 – Online Presence
11 a.m., Room 3 – Reading
3 p.m., Dealers Hall – Signing Tables
4 p.m., Room 3 – Meet the Writers of the Future
7 p.m., Room 1 – Writing a Series
11 a.m., Dealers Hall – Signing Tables
2 p.m., True Dungeon (Worldbuilders Charity Event. No more tickets available – sorry.)
4 p.m., Room 1 – Hard Fantasy (Moderating)
8 a.m., Room 1 – Read and Critique Workshop
9 a.m., Room 1 – Read and Critique Workshop
I expect it to be a bit exhausting, but a lot of fun.
So who else will be going?

I’m not going, but my husband and twin sons are. They all have enjoyed your books, some of your readings at ConFusion and PenguiCon. I’m hoping they can bring me back an autographed copy of Codex Born, but they are running a bunch of Intro to Warhammer 40,000 games and the schedules may not work out. Hope you have a great time, and get to play some games as well as do author stuff.

Thanks! Don’t know how much gaming I’ll get done, but there should be time for relaxing and having some fun. (And probably a bit of holing up in the hotel room to write, too.)

We are here already and ready for the fun to begin. I just picked up Libriomancer…loving it so far. Hoping to stop by and get it signed.

…Pretty much a “ditto” on everything Anna wrote, only in my case it’s just the husband, and the games he and his friends are running are probably Becoming Heroes and Piece of Work (they’re indie RPG designers and will probably be demoing at Games on Demand).
If his schedule allows, I hope to urge him toward your dealer’s table. I have no idea how optimistic to be about this.
Sorry to miss you this time around, but maybe next World Con or so!

Have tons of fun, may many, many people get autographs in their books and I hope you have time to wander around a bit and enjoy the fun. *makes sad eyes eastward* My only wish is that all the fun stuff wasn’t quite so far away. *kicks dirt*
