While I backed out of appearing at MarsCon this weekend — it’s too soon after Dale’s death to deal with a convention weekend, honestly — I’ve got a bunch of con appearances on the docket for 2018.
This isn’t really a convention as such, though it’s being organized like one: I’m one of the speakers at LitCon at South Hunterdon Regional High School in Flemington, New Jersey on the 25th of January. I’ll be giving a talk to the high school students there about career management for writers.
In February, I’ll be, as usual, appearing at Farpoint 2018 in Cockeysville, Maryland on the 9th, 10th, and 11th of the month, doing both my author thing and my percussionst-for-the-Boogie-Knights thing. Then the next weekend, from the 16th to the 18th, I’ll be in Kansas City for Planet Comic-Con, where I’ll be appearing at the Bard’s Tower booth all weekend, and possibly also doing some programming.
In March, I’ll be at three shows. From 9-11 March I’ll be back at the second HELIOsphere convention in Tarrytown, New York. Then — as was officially announced today — I’ll be back at (Re)Generation Who 4, the east coast’s only Doctor Who convention, in Baltimore from the 23rd to the 25th. Then the final weekend of the month, also Easter weekend, I’ll be the Author Guest of Honor at ConGlomeration in Louisville, Kentucky.
Beyond that, I’ll definitely be at Balticon 52 in May, Shore Leave 40 in July, and Dragon Con 2018 over Labor Day weekend (be warned that, as I type this on 12 January 2018, Dragon Con’s web site is having serious issues, so click at your own risk). I will also definitely not be at either Arisia or MarsCon this weekend (see above) or at Treklanta (it conflicts with Balticon, which is the convention where Wrenn and I met, so I ain’t missing that for nothin’). It also looks like there won’t be a Lunacon or I-Con this year, which is a shame.
There will be many more cons besides the above, worry not. I intend to be back at PhilCon and RocCon and I suspect I will be joining Bard’s Tower at several other cons as well.
Looking forward to seeing lots of folks…..
