Off to Lou’ville

In a few hours, Sheldon Gleisser, my literary wing man, and I will be driving down to Kentucky. This is the weekend of the fifth annual Imaginarium Convention.

Once there, we will rub elbows with publishers, editors, writers, and filmmakers. If you are not any of those creatures, but you love good storytelling, you can come on down and rub our elbows, too.

I will be doing panels on Fairytales & Folklore, the Occult, Steampunk, and Costume & Makeup for Filmmaking.  I also hope to make contact with a publisher and get some news about the disposition of “Squirrel Apocalypse”. To top off the weekend, Sunday I will moderate the Author’s Reading panel. I will get to read my favorite sequence from the whole Arcanum Faire trilogy.

Sorry for the late notice, fans and friends, but at my age getting up and putting on pants is a noteworthy accomplishment. See you all in Lou’ville! If you make it down, I can tell you how karma is like a squirrel in a blender.

Cleveland Concoction

The schedule goes like this:

Friday,  12 pm:  Time Management for Authors

How do you write with a full time job, school, kids, house, parents, siblings, and everything else that can take up your time? Our panelists discuss tips and strategies for making time to write even with plenty of distractions

Friday, 11 pm:  The Executions Begin at Midnight

Authors discuss their favorite bizarre and violent end of one of their characters. Conversation may segue into Poetic Justice punishments for modern day social crimes, such as using their cell phone in a theater, leaving the toilet seat up, or purchasing 32 items in the express lane.

Saturday, 1 pm:  Influencing Culture Through Fiction

How has fantasy been able to influence our culture and perceptions? How can we continue to push the boundaries?

Saturday, 2 pm: Author Showcase (Session 3)

Listen to your favorite authors read excerpts from released and soon to be released works. Find your next great read. Ask questions, and discover the new worlds.

Wherein I intend to read a selection from RFEW that allows Eleazar to channel Aragorn.

Saturday,  9 pm: Flash Fiction

Flash and micro fiction is perfect for our fast-paced society. Mastering the art of writing the super-short story can be a new author’s avenue into the business, or a seasoned writer’s best mode of advertising current novels.
