I look like this.
Despite having lived in Philadelphia for nearly three years, next week I will be attending my first Philcon — the first and longest running SFF convention in the world — at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, N.J., Friday, Nov. 8 – Sunday, Nov. 10. Their full schedule is here, but you can find me at the panels listed below, and I hope you’ll come and say hi. This is likely to be my last local event until at least next year.
Before I share my schedule: I want everyone to enjoy the convention without detracting from anyone else’s fun and comfort, so please read Philcon’s Harassment Policy, such as it is.

7:00 PM in Plaza II (Two) (1 hour)

I may read my new short story, “Kiss and Kiss and Kiss and Tell”, which I finished writing on Friday. So if you show up, you’ll be the first people anywhere to hear it! It hasn’t been published yet, and it has the standard author disclaimer that it still may be a little rough :)

The rest of the time I may be hanging out in the bar, or writing on my netbook in a corner somewhere. Deadlines wait for no con.
