This coming week (May 27th-31st), I'll be at Phoenix Comicon where you can find me signing books, speaking on panels, eating cake, and hanging out with friends and fans. It's shaping up to be a rousing good time. If you're in the Phoenix area but not attending Comicon, don't worry! I'll be at an offsite signing with a whole gaggle of awesome authors! Here's my panel schedule for the week. Click on the links to get panelist information and locations.
Poisoned Pen Signing Extravaganza: Wednesday, 7:00pm - 8:00pm at the Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, AZ. I'll be available to sign books you bring and the store will have books for sale. Click on the link to check out the list of other authors present. There will be drinks, snacks, and giveaway prizes.
Magic Refresh: Thursday, 7:30pm - 8:30pm. Why does magic seem to withstand the test of time? Panelists discuss the use of magic and how innovative ideas bring fresh new ways to use magic in literature.
How Big Can It Get: Friday 3:00 - 4:00pm. They don't call it "epic" fantasy for nothin'. Share the glories and tragedies of writing big in epic fantasy: building massive worlds, creating huge casts of characters, and thinking the biggest ideas. Go big or go home (Don't go home, please come).
The Food of Fantasy: Friday 4:30pm - 5:30pm. Feast scenes are a staple of any fantasy author's diet, just as much as dragons and talking swords. But is there more to a feast scene than just disturbingly elaborate portrayals of roast duck? Digest this issue with our panelists!
