My DragonCon Panel Schedule (Or How to Find Me @ DragonCon)

DragonCon has just given me my panel schedule! Here it is! I will try to get a reading as well. If I am not at one of these panels (or lost on the way to or from the panels), I will be signing books in the Exhibitor Hall at the Kerlak Publishing booth. (You can find it in the Marriott… Somewhere amid the sea of people…)

On that note, I HIGHLY recommend the Fairies vs. Vampires Panel. Last year’s Zombies vs. Unicorns panel rocked, and this year, Davey and I are going to be on the same team (fairies) this time!
