Convention Tour

I have a partial list of conventions for 2007. With the new year, I'll be prowling around at:

World Horror Convention in Toronto, Canada (www.whc2007.org)
March 29th - April 1st.

Ravencon in Richmond, Virginia (www.ravencon.com)
April 20th - April 22nd.

BookExpo America in New York City, New York (www.bookexpoamerica.com)
May 30th - June 3rd.

GenCon at Indianapolis, Indiana (www.gencon.com)
August 16th - August 19th.


I'll update the list as I learn more. I certainly hope to see the familar faces and new faces at these conventions.

Hello Kathy,

Ha! I might try Wiscon. I have a paper on gender and identity on a waiting list at another convention, and Wiscon looking for similar topics. :)

God's Blood, I would love to go to the World Horror's Convention in Toronto. Maybe I'll speak to the wife and see if she and I can do this. Sounds like fun.

WHC in entertaining -- and all the more so if you know a few people there. I think it is in Utah next year. So if distance is a factor, this year might be better.

(Sigh) I wish these things would swing closer to Iowa for a change...oh well. Thanks for the list anyway William. Have a Happy New Year too!!!

I'm going to try and make each of the conventions you've listed. I have a supplier in Virginia, a customer in Toronto, a vendor in Indianapolis, and if I hustle I'll find some other business excuse to be in New York. What else is business for except to front for a writing obsession?

Happy New Year to you, Lucas! There are a few cons near Iowa. Although some of this shift about every year, so they might be closer in the future.

That's a clever plan. Do you have a bus? :) And do you have business in Florida? I just added another.

Brian,

Salute is the closet convention of which I know. A hear it is grand -- but I doubt that helps much. :)
