My schedule at Albacon this weekend

This coming weekend, October 7-10, is Albacon, in Albany, New York. If you’re a writer, aspiring writer or avid reader, this is the place to be on Columbus Day weekend! There’s a reception on Thursday evening, and the convention opens with an all-day Writers’ Workshop on Friday. Here’s what I’ll be doing at Albacon, with descriptions and other participants. All of this is subject to last-minute changes, of course–it’s a convention!

Friday

6:00pm
Squire, 60 mins
Out of the Word Processor and Into the Bookstore
(Moderator)
You’ve sold your manuscript and signed the contract. What happens to your book now? Learn all the steps of a book’s journey from author’s submission to readers’ hands, as hardcover, paperback and ebook editions. It’s a long road with more twists and turns than you might think, especially in the digital age.
with Ron Miller (Artist Guest of Honor), Ian Randal Strock

Saturday

12:00pm
Squire, 60 mins
Vampires: Sparkling or Bloody?
Vampires: rotting corpses who feed on human vitality or dreamy sparkly beautiful mopey demi-gods? Discuss.
with Susan Hanniford Crowley, Elizabeth Darvill, Jackie Kessler (Moderator), KT Pinto, Morven Westfield
(I almost recused myself from this one. I get so exasperated by all the misinformation that gets repeated over and over and over about vampire folklore and fiction, I tend to make an obnoxious ass of myself on vampire panels. I was really hoping I would be assigned to moderate so all I’d have to do is ask questions and smile. With friends and BLUM’s newest author on this panel with me, I better be nice! :-( Maybe I’ll just put my foot in my mouth before I talk.)

1:00pm
Albany, 60 mins.
Broad Universe Rapid Fire Reading
(Emcee)
Readers: C. Margery Kempe, K.A. Laity, Roberta Rogow, Morven Westfield
A “rapid fire reading” is the reading equivalent of the tapas bar–delight your ear’s palate with a varied sampling of short excerpts by members of Broad Universe, the only organization dedicated to supporting and promoting women writers of SF/F/H.

4:00pm
Albany, 60 mins
Solo Reading
I may read from more than one work, and I may read an excerpt from my work-in-progress, All the Shadows of the Rainbow and invite comments from my listeners. I’m still putting it all together, though!

7:00pm
Squire, 60 mins
Connecting with Readers Workshop
What does it take to reach readers? How do you cultivate a relationship with your fans?
with Stella Price (Moderator)

8:30pm
Con Suite, 2 hours
By Light Unseen Media Meet and Greet
By Light Unseen Media takes over the Con Suite to celebrate a great year in 2010 so far, and our newest release, Blood Justice, by David Burton. We’ll have some good food, a little music, books, conversation, and BLUM authors Inanna Arthen and KT Pinto (if we can coax her away from the Masquerade!). Drop in and say hello!

11:00pm
Town, until whenever
Steamy Romance Reading
The stories don’t have to be scorching, but it helps! This is a 18+ event. Attendees will have the chance to win some swag thanks to Authors After Dark.
with Kimi Alexandre, Susan Hanniford Crowley, Bianca D’Arc, Elizabeth Darvill, Kayleigh Jamison, C. Margery Kempe, Jo Lynne Valerie, Kit Marlowe, Stella Price, Morven Westfield
(It sure does get hot in Albany on Saturday night! We’ve all got some juicy pieces to read, so bring a cold drink along!)

Sunday

11:00am
Town, 60 mins
Small Press: The Good, the Bad and the Surprising
(Moderator)
As the dinosaurs of publishing lumber along wondering about this ebook thing, are the nimble mammals of the small press your best bet?
with Bianca D’Arc, CJ Henderson, David Hartwell, Peter Prellwitz, Michael A. Ventrella
(I am totally unbiased and objective about this topic. No, really. Switzerland’R'Us. And if you believe that…:-) )

All information about registering, hotel rooms (rooms are still available), and the complete program are on the Albacon website. Hope to see you there!
