It’s that time of the year again! I’m off to Comic Con and I’ve got an exciting line up this year. Thanks to ORLEANS finally being a considered genre enough for Con, I’ll be doing a couple of panels and signings, in addition to my usual crafty presence in Small Press with Tired Girl Collective.
Moderated by Timothy Travaglini (Open Road Integrated Media); authors Kevin J. Anderson(Dune) and Rebecca Moesta (WordFire Press), Cory Doctorow (Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom, Little Brother, Boing Boing), Andy Briggs (Hero.com, Villain.net, Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy), Sherri L. Smith (Orleans, Flygirl), and Nick Cole (The Old Man and the Wasteland, The Savage Boy), and bookseller Maggie Tokuda-Hall (Books, Inc) discuss impact of the digital age on writing, publishing, reading, bookselling, and the traditional book as we know it.
From The Hunger Games‘ Katniss to Divergent‘s Tris, no one knows how to give a solid ass-kicking like a YA novel heroine. But when these young ladies aren’t saving the world, overthrowing powerful regimes, or slaying everything from zombies to dragons, they still find time for romance. Ally Condie(Matched), Veronica Roth (Divergent), Holly Black (The Coldest Girl in Coldtown),Marissa Meyer(Scarlet), Lissa Price (Starters), and Veronica Wolff (The Watchers) discuss the delicate balance between killing and kissing, and what it takes to properly woo a YA heroine. Moderated by Sherri Smith (Orleans).

Now, if you’re wondering what Tired Girl Collective is, it’s a crafting co-op I started with a couple of friends back in the dark ages of 2006. Comprised of my odd random crafts and jewelry (as Miss Smith’s Miscellany and Bookish Press),
What I get up to when I’m not writing…
… or working….
…or sleeping. This is a hairclip!
my partner-in-crime Ren of Karen Lucrece’s beautiful art (she designed the look of my webpage!),
and a rotating cast of other exhausted women who stay up late making strange things because we think they are funny or cute. This year we have Melanie of Belle Pottery with us. she’s got AWESOME jewelry this year. You must come see it if you can!
Okay, that’s enough self-promotion for one day. I hope to see you in San Diego. If not, I’m sure I’ll come back with some good stories. See you next week!
