Slicing Up the Public Appearances
But wait, there's more! Just in, yet another webcast over at Slice, this one featuring a lot of moi yapping about Comic Book Biz Bashing. Check it out and add your thoughts or call them in!
Speaking of Slice of SciFi, my February column is up at It's Comic Book Day!, so check it out and, again, leave comments if you're so in the mood.
Next up, my "con season" is about to start, so we all know what time it is, now, right? Right! It's time for a Public Appearance Roundup!
Tucson Festival of Books: Saturday & Sunday March 9 & 10, 9:00am-5:30pm both days, Tucson, AZ. I'll be signing at the Mysterious Galaxy/Penguin Booth (Main Area #301-302), the Poisoned Pen Booth (Main Area #230-231) -- times and date TBA -- and at the Arizona Dreamin' Romance Books Booth (Main Area #125-126, 131-132) whenever I'm not at MG or PP or on panels. My panels are -- SF/F: Romance, the Last Frontier, and Rom: It's not all Demons, Death and Destruction. My panels will be on Saturday the 9th, but times are still in flux and will be announced later. This is the 4th largest book fair in the country, so don't miss out!
Mysterious Galaxy 20th Birthday Bash: Saturday, May 11, 10am-5pm, San Diego, CA. Come see the me and a ton of other awesome authors and get Alien in the House and all your other bookie wookies signed!
Phoenix Comicon: Thursday-Sunday, May 23-26, Th. 4:00pm-9:00pm, Fri. 9am-7:00pm, Sat., 8:00am-7:00pm, Sun. 9:00am-5:30pm, Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, AZ. Still the best little convention that could -- big enough to draw huge names, small enough for you to be able to meet them all. Great panels, awesome exhibit hall, and moi. What more incentive do you need? Panels, signings, and exhibit hall location TBD.
Arizona Dreamin': Friday-Sunday, May 31-June 2, Chandler, AZ. Heavy duty reader focused event that gets you up close and personal with a lot of cool authors including moi. Keep the eyeballs peeled -- I'll be offering special ticket deals starting next week. Final schedule TBD.
San Diego Comic-Con: Wednesday-Sunday, July, 18-12, San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA. Don't miss out on seeing the me at the granddaddy of them all! Panels and signings TBD.
DarkCon 2014: Thursday-Sunday, January 16-19, 2014, Mesa, AZ. I'm the Local Guest of Honor at this one, and they've already declared Jan. 19, 2014 the official day of GiniCon. It's gonna be HUGE! So you need to start saving the money now, get the time off work now, and get it all scheduled in now, so that next January we can party like it's 15 years after 1999!
As always, as more events add in, you'll be the first to know. But now, let's get to what you want to know today -- who won Alien in the House's galley.
Note to our winner: You have until Sunday, February 10th to check in by sending me an email with your name (first and last) and your full mailing address. If I don't hear from you, the Gods of Random will demand a sacrifice and a new winner will be chosen.
The contest for Alien Proliferation's galley is going on now. It's for Hook Me Up! subscribers only, so if you're not on, now's the time to change that. Send an email with "Hook Me Up!" in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll be in and sent the contest rules.
That's it for today, but as always, more's on the way. So enjoy the downward slide towards the weekend, and let's be readers out there! Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!
