My 2013 World Horror Convention Schedule in NOLA June 13-16

June 10, 2013

WHC2013Can’t wait for World Horror! Here’s my schedule. Pop by and see me!

THURSDAY 8PM – CO-AUTHORING—THE DOS AND THE DON’TS

What does it take to bring two minds together and create something really worth reading? Find out as this panel explores the true art of creating an idea from start to finish, utilizing not one mind, but two. Topics discussed will cover how to choose the right partner, how to flesh out an idea, how to effectively divide tasks to write a book, how to communicate properly during the process, and what common pitfalls to avoid. We will also discuss the future of collaborative writing, and just how it might be the hottest way to pen a bestseller.

Moderator: Mark C. Scioneaux. Panelists: Sally Bosco, Rocky Wood, Lynne Hansen, Dana Fredsti, Jeff Strand, Stan Swanson

THURSDAY 9PM – THE ONLY CONSTANT IS CHANGE

In a world where self-publishing is an ever more attractive option for some writers and e-books are growing in popularity by the week, what’s an author to do? How do you find readers when bookstores are disappearing? Is social media the answer or a dead-end?

Moderator: J. L. Benet. Panelist: Querus Abuttu, John Prescott, Lynne Hansen, Chris Morey, Liz Gorinsky

FRIDAY 7-9pm – MASS SIGNING
