Unless you’re attending RavenCon, this might not make any sense. Nevertheless, I’m completely stoked! This is what my convention schedule looks like…
Twice-Told Tales Friday 5:00 PM Potomac
Urban Fantasy 101 Friday 10:00 PM Potomac
OMG! Worst Book Evar!! Saturday 9:00 AM Rappahanock
Love at First Bite Saturday 10:00 PM Potomac
I almost did back flips across my couch when I saw Urban Fantasy 101 on my schedule. It was my number one pick, so it was nice to get it. What is UF? How does it differ from horror? I have my own theories about this, so I’m crossing my fingers that everyone is receptive. Nothing controversial or anything, but just 30 years of watching horror movies and an early reader/lover of Laurell K. Hamilton (among others), I’ve seen this genre mold itself into something new and different with every new UF writer out there. That’s a good thing. 🙂
Twice-Told Tales will be fun too. It’s about pretty much what all books are today. Retold tales. How many vampire stories are out there? Werewolves? That’s what this panel is about.
OMG! Worst Book Evah!! I could talk a good hour on my own about this topic, so had better only a few lines up. Let’s just hope the authors of some of my least favorite books aren’t sitting in the audience. 😉
Love at First Bite is probably a no-brainer. Vampires, baby. We’re going to be talking about the fun of True Blood, Twilight, and hopefully Moonlight. I’ll bring up Moonlight, if nobody else does. And what about Kindred: The Embraced? Anyone remember that? Anyway, this panel is going to rock!
I can’t wait to find out who my co-panelists are going to be. Already, this is one conference I’m seriously thinking about returning to next year.
So if you were going to be on a convention/conference panel what would it be?
