to Worldcon, and beyond!

August 15, 2011

Wednesday, I begin something of a mini-tour to promote Kitty’s Greatest Hits, which also includes a couple of conventions and fun for everyone.  As a result, posting here will be light.  Lighter, rather.  But I’ll update when I can.  (Especially after the Hugo Awards on Saturday.  Fingers crossed.  Whatever happens, I plan on dressing to the nines and making an event of it.)

Without further ado, my epic schedule for the next two weeks.

Renovation:  Reno Worldcon

I have a busy, busy convention…

Thursday 3 pm:  Creating Gods (panel, A09)

Thursday 4 pm:  Arrrgh! Tall Tales Versus History in Pirate Research (panel, A03)

Friday 11 am:  Urbane Fantasy vs. Urban Fantasy (panel, A04)

Friday 5 pm:  Pirates for Kids (panel, E1)

Saturday 1 pm:  Reading (A15)

Saturday 2 pm:  Autographing (Hall 2)

Saturday 3 pm: The Paranormal as Metaphor (panel, A16)

(at some point in here, I will be in my hotel room, cursing my limp fine hair that will not stay up no matter how many bobby pins I use)

Saturday 8 pm: Hugo Awards Ceremony

Sunday 11 am:  Kaffeeklatsch (KK1. Warning:  odds are I will be a sleep deprived basket case here, no matter which way the awards go.  Apologies in advance.)

Sunday 12 pm:  Wild Cards (panel A01+6)

WHEW!  Now, onward:

Tuesday, August 23, 7 pm, I’ll be signing books at Schuler Books in Lansing, Michigan.

Wednesday, August 24, 7 pm, I’ll be at  Joseph Beth Books in Lexington, Kentucky.

Then, onto Bubonicon in Albuquerque, which runs August 26-28.  I probably have a schedule for it around here somewhere…

Then I’ll be home for a couple of days.  Then I’ll head out to be Guest of Honor at CopperCon in Phoenix, Arizona, September 2-5.

Then, I’ll come home and sleep…

    RE: limp, fine hair. ‘Goody’ makes corkscrew-like things- look like twisted bobbie pins, come in two lengths, work great with my superfine, thin hair. Thought I’d share the info.

    Dressed to the nines…does this mean an evening gown, or in keeping with it being a Con (World Con and Hugo’s Not withstanding) Steampunk regalia?
    Best of luck for the award.

    Good luck on the Hugo! Let’s us know how it turns out. I’m sure we’re all rooting for you. I know I am!

    Good luck, Carrie! Wish I could be there. Unfortunately, teachers report to work this week. Argh!

    Oh no! Jim, you’re one of the people I look forward to hanging out with at Worldcon! I figured Reno was so close to you I’d see you for sure!

    Mile Hi Con then?
