GenCon is Coming. Here’s Where I’ll Be

untitled (2)After a couple of years away and in the run-up to the November release of THE ARK, I’ll once again be making the trek to Indianapolis to participate in the wonderful GenCon Writer’s Symposium. If you’re unaware, the Symposium is one of the strongest and largest literary tracks at any convention in the country. It was attending the Symposium five years ago when I got my foot in the door as a slush editor at Apex. It was at GenCon that I made the connections I needed to write tie-in fic for BattleTech. It has shaved years off my development as a professional author.

This year’s programming features over seventy-five published authors, agents, and editors sharing their knowledge of writing and the publishing industry in a couple hundred hours worth of panels, AMA’s, and interviews.

Anyway, here’s what I’ll be up to over the weekend. In addition to my author cap, I’ll be flexing my stand up muscles as the opening act for my dear friends The Damsels of Dorkington:
