DragonCon 2014 Schedule Repost, with Additions! And Locations!

Please to note:

a) I have a reading. If you want to know what’s coming up in 2015, you will be at that reading. Bringing me chocolate will be optional, but appreciated.

b) once again, I’m going to be on a panel with Laurell Hamilton and Jim Butcher. Come to this panel. Scream devotedly when I introduce myself. I will throw YOU chocolate.

I will also be holding the reins at the SFWA table at various times during the weekend, depending on how guilty I feel when they need me. So feel free to stop by, see what we’re giving away, and who might be lounging about!  It’s one of the surest ways to encounter that author you didn’t know was at DC and would have kicked yourself if you’d missed!
