Looking very much forward to Marcon in Columbus. The Multiple Alternative Realities Convention is a big one, and I am going to be exhibiting, doing a reading and a few panels there. Will be sharing table space with the wonderful author TammyJo Eckhart, as well as Travis Clemmons. Great bunch to be around and work with, I can say for certain.
The outgoing and never-dull Scott Sandridge will be one of the authors doing a reading in the time slot that mine falls in, and I can't wait to see what he's got cooked up. I'm reading an advance copy of one of his new books right now, and really digging it! Scott is probably on 25 panels, as he about set a record at the last ConText (seriously, he was on 6 panel slots in a row during one stretch, and had around 10 panels in all). Scott's very creative and certainly unpredictable.
Others that I'm aware of who are attending include Shane Moore, of the Abyss Walker world. Shane's another guy that I look forward to catching up with, having met him for the first time at ConNooga in Chattanooga TN this past February. He's got a great thing going with his Abyss Walker projects, involving a number of great artists, authors, and others in the various areas that he's developing with AW. Be sure to pick up one of his AW novels if you get a chance.
I'm going to have some materials from The Storm Guardians this weekend, and I will be doing my reading from The Storm Guardians, and it will be good to start to get some feedback. We're about 1 week away from the book launch at Hypericon, which I hope will be an amazing weekend, as I absolutely love Hypericon, my Nashville friends, and the city. I'm following it up with a stop at the great Davis-Kidd store in Memphis on Monday, June 7th. Things are definitely getting busy quick!
