It’s at Books & Boos bookstore in Colchester, CT, 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. There will be cookies and chocolate on hand! See store website for directions.

My schedule at Albacon 2012

UPDATED

As of Thursday, October 11, this is my “final” programming schedule for Albacon 2012, which will take place October 18-21 in Albany, New York. I say “final” in quotations because all convention schedules are subject to change! Note that my individual reading time has been moved from Saturday morning to Sunday morning, and I will be participating in the Writers’ Workshop on Friday (I hadn’t gotten those sessions in the previous schedule).

The pros and cons of each publishing option. With Elektra Hammond, Susan Hannaford Crowley and JoLynne Valerie.
4:45 p.m. Gathering of the Missing Pages
Honestly? I’m baffled. All Workshop participants will be involved in whatever it is!
