It's time for another year of Salt Lake Comic Con and another hectic schedule for me. But! that doesn't mean it's not a helluva lot of fun. I hope you're able to join me at any of these panels. Especially if you like Star Wars. And please, please, please come to my signing and visit. Get some books signed. I'd love that enormously.
Here is my Thursday schedule:
Everything here is a highlight. That first panel about behind the scenes of the prequels is with Pablo Hidalgo and I'll be asking him questions about what it was like to be there on set for most of the prequels. Then I'll be asking questions of Michael Biehn, who I've been a fan of since I was a little kid. Aliens and Terminator were favorites. If you want to ask him a question, please hit me up on Twitter with it. I will ask it at the panel.
And you don't want to miss Fauxthentic History's Infinity Gauntlet live episode. It's going to be soooo good.
Here is Friday:
There's a lot to love here, too. That first panel, The Cinema Behind Star Wars is going to be Matt Martin and I talking about the influences of Star Wars and I've prepared a video presentation actually. The Thrawn panel will be great, too. It's me, Matt, Timothy Zahn talking about everyone's favorite Grand Admiral.
The rest are all great, too. If you like Star Wars, you'll see a lot of me.
I'm also, between the Star Wars animation panel and the Twin Journeys panel, I'll be participating in Patrick Rothfuss's Worldbuilders party. You can still get tickets here. I'll be playing Mysterium with people who buy tickets and auctioning off a signed copy of A Children's Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination. Be there.
Here is Saturday:
As for my writing and creative life, I've been swamped with getting the short film for the Sundance Film Festival deadline. So, that's that.
I've had a lot of pieces come out, but I've been terrible at keeping track of them. But my Patreon story is done, I'll post it as soon as Salt Lake Comic Con is over.
As a reminder: Please join my short story Patreon here. Your contributions to the Patreon help me write more like this. When I hit 50 patrons, everyone will get a copy of Lost at the Con.
The Aeronaut and Escape Vector are still out and still need your purchases and reviews. If nothing else, they can use you telling people about them. If you want signed copies, visit the shop here on this page.
Also! here's the full list of "rules and guidelines" I've been collecting over my years of studying writing advice and process.
As far as my work outside of all this: There's a lot of great stuff on Big Shiny Robot! and Full of Sith for you.
And please, please, please don't forget to check out any of my books, drop reviews of them on Amazon or Goodreads, and follow me on Twitter and Facebook!
