My LoneStarCon 3 Schedule

It’s very brief. I am doing programming only on Sunday, September 1. The events are:

1pm – 2pm: Signing. This is when I am signing books. Usually the books I wrote. But, hey. I’m not picky.

3pm – 4pm: Reading. You will probably want to come to this because I will be reading either material from the new novel or a short story directly related to the new novel. I haven’t decided yet which. Either way, this will be a Worldcon exclusive; this material will not have been read to anyone else. You will get it first. Plus the usual Q & A stuff at the end.

4pm – 5pm: Kaffeeklatsch. This is me talking with a small table of fans. You’ll need to sign up at the convention for this, and it’s first come, first serve.

And then after that I’m off to get ready for the Hugos, which are that night.

For those asking why the convention only has me doing these events and only on Sunday, the answer (which I’ve posted before but am repeating now just in case)  is because a) that’s when I told them I would be available and b) that’s what I said I would be willing to do. I’m a little burnt at the moment, and the idea of not doing a whole lot and just hanging out with friends was very appealing.

So don’t blame LoneStarCon for my schedule; it’s all on me. Indeed, I thank the folks at LoneStarCon for being willing to accommodate my schedule requests.

One other note: I won’t be arriving at LoneStarCon until late Friday afternoon at the earliest. If you look for me there earlier than that you won’t find me, or if you do, something has gone seriously wrong with the fabric of space and time, and you should probably be fairly alarmed. Just so you know.

My Dad Went to GenCon and All I Got Was This Actually Pretty Darn Nice Hat

Yeah, I got dad points. 

Also, I had a nice day at GenCon. As I did last year, I came in for the day specifically, this year in order to take part in Pat Rothfuss’ charity run through True Dungeon. I regret to say I died thank you very much Pat Rothfuss, but the Pat followed me almost immediately into death and thus became my honor guard into Hell. So I got that going for me. Aside from that my day was spent seeing friends and hanging out, which was also fun. But mostly, it was about getting a hat for my kid. As it should have been.
