Things to do on the Weekend

If you're a writer, then writing is a good thing to do on the weekend. :) The next best thing to do is visit ConClave and join in on the literary panels.

Starting Friday, Oct. 8th, I'll be at the convention. If you get a chance, drop by and say hello.

I'll be on a number of panels and attending several this weekend. It is my hope to post some updates, photos, and maybe more from the convention - for those who can't attend.

Starting Friday, 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm, I'll be on the Writing 101 panel Darwin Garrison, Merrie Haskell, Charles P. Zaglanis, Stewart Sternberg, M. Keaton.

My guess is this will be a great panel for new and experienced authors. A wide variety topics will be covered, and of course the more voices in the audience with additional knowledge makes the panel all the better.

On later that night, at 6:30-8:00, I'll be on the Zombiegeddon panel - an exploration of why the undead keep coming back in fiction. And a bit of fun with the apocalyptic/zombie genre of fiction.

I'll be joining Daniel J. Hogan, Charles P. Zaglanis, Stewart Sternberg.

Even if you're not a fan of this sub-genre, this panel is worth attending. I did a similar panel last year and it was a blast...riot...killer....

What I'd like to do is list all of the panels I'm on, but after looking at the list, it is around 14, and maybe 15 if you count one double booking. :) That would be too long of a list to go through. And, as there are many other important and fun panels, I'll point to the program book: PROGRAM BOOK

What I will try to do is attempt to take Twitter questions and comments, and post a bit of the panels (maybe some audio with permission) on Facebook and my blog.

Lastly, but equally as important, I'll have advance copies of The Anthology of Dark Wisdom: Best of Dark Fiction with me, and they will be available for sale at the con. A list of authors can be fond on this blog (here).

Hope to see a few of you there!

It has been at least a month since I have read one of your posts. It is very nice to see you are keeping busy.

wow, that's a lot of panels. Should be fun, and exhausting!

Jason- I can't wait to keep a copy. :)

Brandon - Thanks for reading the blog. It has been a while since I'd posted - been busy with various projects, so my Internet travels have been few.

Charles - You are quite right. :) And the panels are scheduled back to back, so there is little rest for the wicked. :)
