First up, Julie E. Czerneda--who has a new book out this month, Rift in the Sky--is offering up a copy of the book as a prize over at the [livejournal.com profile] dawbooks community. In addition to entering her contest by commenting with what you think the answers are, any comment automatically enters you into the running for the montly free DAW paperback for July! So two contest entries in one over there. But you have to enter at that post to be qualified.

In addition, and to my utter shock, I've been put on programming at Worldcon. I figured I'd registered a little too late to be included in the planning process. Here's my tentative schedule for the con so far. I need to discuss this with my partner to see if we'll be there for all of the days and whatnot, but if there are any changes made to this, I'll announce them when it's a little closer to the con. But here you guys go. They seem to have really thought about what panels I'd be good for, based on what I write. I'm impressed.

Friday, August 7th:

2pm: Author Reading: Leah Bobet, Elaine Isaak, Guy Gavriel Kay, and Joshua Palmatier will do readings for this hour and a half event held in P-512AE. (English)

3:30pm: Preparing to Write a Series: M.D. Benoit, Laura Anne Gilman, Joe Haldeman, Mindy Klasky, Joshua Palmatier, and Fiona Patton discuss the following in a one hour event held in P-522B: How does a writer plan to write a series? Or is it unplanned until you sign the contract? Writers discuss how they set up and wrote novels that are part of a "series." (English)

Saturday, August 8th:

11am: Writing Workshop U: M.D. Benoit and Joshua Palmatier will run a critique session for previously submitted manuscripts at this two hour event held in D-Vitre. (English)

Sunday, August 9th:

11am: Writing in a Culture Not Your Own: Emma Hawkes and emma_in_oz, David D. Levine, Joshua Palmatier, David Sklar, and Kaaron Warren comment on the following for this one hour event held in P-522B: How does a writer get into the head of a character from a different culture, race, planet, gender? How can writers include diversity in their writing without using stereotypes? Or should they not try at all? (English)

1:30: Signing: For 30 minutes, Joshua Palmatier will be nailed down at a table and will sign copies of his books, or whatever else you have for him to sign. But never fear, if you miss him at the official signing, you can catch him at the succeeding Kaffeklatsch, where he'll also be willing to sign whatever you've got. I'm not sure where the signings are going to be held. It only says "other" in my information. It also says I'll be signing for twelve hours and thirty minutes, but I'm assuming that's a typo. (English)

2pm: Kaffeeklatsch: Come drink coffee, hot chocolate, or even a White Russion with Joshua Palmatier for this day long *ahem* I mean one hour event held in P-521B. Ask anything you want, all those burning questions. You may even get a coherent answer. (English, or an approximation thereof)

4:30pm: Writing Gender Issues: Jason Bourget, Jane Carnall, Lila Garrott-Wejksnora, Anne Harris, Nancy Johnston, John Kessel, and Joshua Palmatier answer the following questions for this one hour event held in P-513B: How do writers approach gender and gender issues? What’s taboo? Can women write men and men write women without making a mess of it? How do you write a story that explores gender issues without hitting the reader over the head? (English)

***************

So that's my schedule according to them. And OMG, I've got a reading with Guy Gavriel Kay! *pause while I hyperventilate* Someone might actually be there! So who else is going to Worldcon?

It would be great if you can come. You can try to join me during the Kaffeeklatsch or the signing and I can sign that book I forgot to sign before I mailed it out. *headdesk*

Yes, that would be nice. :) And now that you mention it, I just finished the other book I was reading and began the Skewed Throne last night!

I shall be there! This will be my first WorldCon, and I'm very interested in your Friday and Sunday Writing panels.

The writing panels should be cool!

Great reading, dude. But I think I've got the best panel assignment. A review of the year in Montreal Cosplay. In French, no less.

From: [identity profile] jpsorrow.livejournal.com
How good is your French? And how do you get these weird panels?

Date: 2009-07-10 12:43 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] scbutler.livejournal.com
My French isn't nearly good enough. Nor do I have any idea why I was put on the panel. I've already suggested the organizers take me off.

See you in Montreal! And in Paramus. And in Pittsburgh?

From: [identity profile] karen-w-newton.livejournal.com
My husband and I will be there. I will try to catch some of your panels, but I did manage to get on two of my own this year (both on ebooks, natch!). I don't think they conflict, unless something changes.

Congrats on getting programming! And make certain you stop and say hi!

*pout* I can't get there this year. Have a great time!

From: [identity profile] jpsorrow.livejournal.com
Well that sucks. You will write in a frenzy to vent your frustrations, right?

Yes, yes, I promise! Like a mad woman!

But a mad woman with excellent spelling skills...

I will be there, and I'll try to catch at least one of your panels, if not a reading.

Great! Make sure you introduce yourself!

I'm going to Worldcon! The events you're scheduled for look great and I'm sure I'll be at some of them. I'm especially interested in writing and gender issues. I'm scheduled for two events I'm excited about and one panel I might have to bow out of because its a subject I'm not overly familiar with.

Make certain you stop and introduce yourself!

I shall hope to be able to meet you there.

We definitely better meet. Are you attending the DAW dinner?

I will be there. No panels for me but I have a feeling I'll be busy enough without them.

Date: 2009-07-10 12:21 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jpsorrow.livejournal.com
I wasn't expecting panels and I expected to be busy, so yeah. *grin*

Sadly, there's no way I can, and I was looking forward to crashing it just because it's in Montreal. As it is, I'm trying to find someone willing to put Greasing the Pan postcards on the freebie table for me.

Date: 2009-07-10 12:22 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jpsorrow.livejournal.com
If you send them to me, I can put them out for you. Send me a message here and I'll reply with my address. Maybe you can put some of my postcards out at other cons for me, if you go to other cons.

Date: 2009-07-10 01:20 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] txtriffidranch.livejournal.com
I don't go to other cons any more, but I can talk to two friends who run a big one here in Dallas about putting out postcards there. Sound reasonable or sane?

I'd hyperventilate as well if I had to share a programmeitem with G.G. Kay. Congrats.

Thanks. It will be cool to meet him, if nothing else.

Nope not this year. Wish I was going though...

From: [identity profile] jpsorrow.livejournal.com
*frown* I didn't think I'd be going at first, but then my editor called and . . . well, things changed.

From: [identity profile] serge-lj.livejournal.com
I'll be there. Probably too late to be on any panel, but I'll be in the masquerade. See you!

Date: 2009-07-10 12:23 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jpsorrow.livejournal.com
Well of COURSE you'd be at the masquerade!

This year though, I'll simply be carrying someone else's light-weight prop on stage. Last year, not only did I make the prop, but it was heavy, and carrying it from our hotel to Denver's mile-long con center was quite the task.

I am, and I have gotten my schedule as well. My dance card is not as full as yours, but time at the SFWA table and the SFWA suite will take care of that...

Date: 2009-07-10 12:24 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jpsorrow.livejournal.com
Add in doing things with my partner and the DAW editors and my dance card is jam packed. Strawberry I believe.

Date: 2009-07-11 01:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jjschwabach.livejournal.com
Indeed. Still, I am confident our paths will cross at some point. I'm guessing you're also going to hit the town and see the sights?

Looking forward to sharing a panel with you!

I saw you were on one of my panels! It will be good to meet you in person (finally, after missing you at the Zombies party in Saratoga).

I know!I'm so looking forward to it all.

I'll be there! My book will be launched on Saturday at 7:00, would love for you to come if you can!

Ooo, a party! I'll have to add that to my schedule. Hopefully I'll be able to make it!

With Guy Kay. Yeek.

I know, I'm "yeeking" too. It will be nice to meet him, but I'm hoping we get to read before he does.

I very much expect we will. We sound like the warmup act. *g*
