Usually, the San Diego Comic-Con marks the end of my convention season with the exception of TusCon in the fall (which I won't make this year, because I'll be in North Carolina).
This year, though, there aren't any breaks ahead (with the possible exception of October). Next up, in August, I'll be at CopperCon in Mesa, AZ. Because of scheduling conflicts, I'm only there on Saturday and Sunday, August 10-11, but my panel schedule is very full just the same:
•How Editors Do What They Do - Aug 10, 2013 - 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
•Writing Prose Novels about Comic Book Characters - Aug 10, 2013 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
•Autographs - Aug 10, 2013 - 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
•The Craft of Collaboration - Aug 10, 2013 - 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
•Inserting Crime Elements in Other Genres - Aug 11, 2013 - 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Other guests will include my friend and writing partner, Marsheila (Marcy) Rockwell; authors L.E. Modesitt, Jennifer Roberson, Sharon Skinner and Jacqueline Lichtenberg; talented comic book creators including Trina Robbins, Jenn Corrella, Steve Leialoha, and Mike Grell, and more. If you're in the area, I hope you'll attend.
NOTE: The time for the "Inserting Crime" panel has been changed; it's now on Sunday morning.
