Are you in the greater tri-state area, with those tri-states being New York, New Jersey and Connecticut? If not…are you up for a last-minute roadtrip? Of course you are!
I’m going to be at Lunacon — the 58th annual convention of the New York Science Fiction Society — this Saturday at the Westchester Hilton in Rye Brook, N.Y. This is my first time going, which is my bad considering this is very much my local con. I’m looking forward to rectifying this oversight and meeting lots of cool people in the process.
And what, you may ask, will I be doing there? Panels, of course. It’s what you do at cons. Here’s my schedule — all my panels are on Saturday, March 19.
- Research for Historical & Fantasy Fiction (Noon, Westchester Ballroom D4): This is, of course, right up my alley, and I’m sharing the stage with many fine scribes, including Lunacon Guest of Honor Naomi Novik.
- So I Just Finished My First Draft. Now what? (4 p.m., Maple Room): Seeing as I kind of wish I had gone to a panel like this after my first draft of my first novel, I figured I might help others avoid my mistakes!
- SF and Social Justice Movements (5 p.m., Westchester Ballroom D5): I strongly believe that literature, including science fiction and fantasy, is at the forefront of social change. Really looking forward to tackling this one.
It’s highly likely that I’ll be bringing some swag with me, possibly including a copy of the new The Daedalus Incident paperback. So keep an eye on Twitter and see if you might catch me doing a giveaway.
If you’re planning to go, I hope to see you there. If not…gas is super cheap right now. Just saying. You can’t crash on my couch, though.
