Here it is the eve of Dragon*Con–which sounds so fancy, doesn’t it?–and I’m going to be live-blogging it for you.
Well, hopefully live-blogging. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I can actually access the web from whichever of the DragonCon hotels I’ll be in at any particular moment. So it may not be exactly live. Um, I’ll be living while I blog, of course. Otherwise that would be quite a feat. I’m dedicated and all, but I doubt even I could blog FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE.
I’m pretty excited about the whole thing. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Dragon*Con–which, for those of you who don’t know, is (according to the official Dragon*Con website), “the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the US.”
And I’m going to be there. More than that, I’m actually going to be a guest there, doing panels and stuff. Which for me will mostly consist of hoping desperately that I:
A. Don’t pass out from nerves;
B. Don’t sound like an idiot
C. Actually have an audience at my panels and my reading Saturday at 1pm (I’ll be reading from UNHOLY GHOSTS, the first book in my upcoming Del Rey series, so sneak peek alert)
D. Don’t have something stuck in my teeth
E. Don’t get stepped on while navigating the crowds (I’m only 5′2″)
And of course, hoping that I manage to entertain you all here. So, no pressure or anything.
See you tomorrow!
