Wiscon Schedule

What’s that? You say you absolutely cannot live another second unless you know what my (tentative) panel schedule will be at Wiscon, the world’s premier feminist science fiction convention? Well then, it would be utterly irresponsible for me to delay its publication one minute longer!

What Newly-Published Authors Find Out and You Want to Know
Saturday, 10:00-11:15 a.m. in Conference Room 3

Once your book is bought, suddenly all your concerns change completely. Your how-to-write books gather dust and your critique group wonders why you’re so cranky. Want a sneak preview? Ask these three first-time novelists what it’s like.

M: John M Scalzi, Virginia G McMorrow, Barth Anderson


The Creation (or Reconstruction) of a Mind

Saturday, 2:30-3:45 p.m. in Capitol B

Much SF has somebody mind-wiped, and the poor soul must then develop a whole new personality. What is actually necessary to construct a mind?

Amy Thomson, M: John M Scalzi, Andrea D Hairston

Promoting Your Novel
Sunday, 2:30-3:45 p.m. in Senate B

Everyone knows that the vast majority of published novelist do not get sent on book tours or make appearances on Oprah and Good Morning America. So what should the rest of us be doing to promote our novels? What are the best way to let people know our novels exist?

John M Scalzi, M: Liz Gorinsky

The SignOut
Monday, 11:30am-12:45pm in Capitol Room

Come and sign your works, come and get things signed, come and hang out and wind down before you leave.

These should be some interesting panels, and I enjoy moderating (that’s what that little “M” in front of one’s name means), so you can say I’m pleased with my panel assignments.
