Immediate business first: I just finished a spot on Good Morning Memphis on the local Fox station for Midsouthcon, which runs this weekend at the Hilton at Poplar and I-240; I now have my programming schedule, as well:
Friday, Mar. 25, 5 p.m.:
Web Comics panel with me, Chris Haley, Curt Franklin, Rhonda Platania, and Rob Balder (Promenade)
Saturday, Mar. 26, 11 a.m.:
Worlds of Adventure panel with me, Kurt Busiek, and Nicki Howe (TN Ballroom C)
Saturday, Mar. 26, 7 p.m.:
Star Wars Knight Errant panel with me, Lin Workman, Martheus Wade, and Traci Brown (Promenade)
|Erich Schoenweiss, Paul S. Kemp, and me
at C2E2’s Star Wars fiction panel
I will also be signing at various times. I know of one collective signing time at 5 p.m. Saturday, but there may be others.
It has been a busy week. Wednesday I spoke to several assemblies at St. Benedict’s at Auburndale, the successor school to my old high school; that was a lot of fun. And then before that was C2E2, where I participated on several panels and signings for Dark Horse and Del Rey — and tried hard on Friday not to keel over, as I was probably sicker than I’ve ever been at a convention. (Something I ate, I think — all better now!) At C2E2 I also ran into a friend from the Auburndale days — Chris Hardwick, now of Nerdist.com and TV fame. Hadn’t seen him in years — goot to catch up with him again!
A day recuperating in Oak Park on Saturday helped get me back to full power for Sunday, where we had the panel for the Dark Horse Star Wars comics. We discussed Deluge, the next storyline for Star Wars: Knight Errant there — and you can read more about it here.
Hope to see everyone this weekend at Midsouthcon!
