Heading to ALBACON 2012: My Events Schedule #Albacon2012

Now that things appear to be finalized, I am happy to announce that I will be a participating author in ALBACON 2012 being held at the Holiday Inn and Suites in  Latham, NY from October 18-21, 2012.

I’ve never been to a CON of this sort before, so I am beyond excited to see what it is all about, and hopefully meet some amazing authors and Sci-fi/Fantasy readers as well. If you were interested in attending, tickets will be available at the door for $40.00 — completely reasonable when you take a look at all the panels, autographing and reading events they are offering visitors.

If you do happen to come, please stop in and say hello. Would love to meet you!

Here is my schedule of events for the convention:

Friday (10/19):

All Day – Writer’s Workshop

8pm – Ice Cream Social (who doesn’t get excited about ice cream?)

Saturday (10/20):

11:00am – Panel: Anything Good on TV? — What TV shows are worth watching this year.

1:00pm – Reading: Call of the Sea

3:00pm – Panel: Happily Ever After — Is it true that readers don’t want upbeat stories, or is it just harder to sell them?

4:00pm – Autographing Session (copies of Call of the Sea will be available for purchase at the Flights of Fantasy dealers table)

6:00pm – Panel: Strong female characters who don’t need guns (yes, I call this the Ellie panel:P) — Can a heroine be compassionate and cool?

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to participate in the events on Sunday, as I have other obligations, but I think the above will make for a full Saturday.

What about you guys out there? Have you ever been to a sci-fi or fantasy convention? What did you like about it? Hate? Help a girl out — share your experiences so I don’t worry about what to expect for the next two weeks.

  1. Kinda sad I live in the UK right now. :-(

  2. It sounds like so much fun. Wish I lived in the neighborhood. Best of luck in your latest adventure and be sure you tell us how it goes. :-)
