My Farpoint schedule

Greetings and salutations, stalkers! Here’s my schedule for the Farpoint convention, which begins tomorrow at the Crowne Plaza Hotel – Baltimore North, in Timonium, Maryland.

Friday, February 15

6PM – Like Father, Like Son: Father-Son Relationships in Star Trek
Chesapeake 1
I’ll be talking about how the father-son relationship is at the core of my recent New York Times bestselling trilogy Cold Equations, and the way this theme has been integral to several of my novels. (Ann Harding; Andrew Kelley; Abby Lindstrom; David Mack; Phil Margolies)

9PM – Minor Characters on DS9: Everyone’s a Star!
Chesapeake 1
As the co-writer of the only episode of the show to feature supporting characters as the “A” story (“It’s Only a Paper Moon”), I thought this was a panel to which I could make a substantive contribution. (Randy Hall; Lorenzo Heard; Andrew Kelley; Abby Lindstrom; David Mack; Phil Margolies)

10PM-Midnight – Farpoint Book Fair
Timonium Room (Con Suite)
I’ll be promoting my new trilogy, of course, and I’ll be bringing copies of some of my older works for sale. I plan to accept both cash and credit cards, thanks to PayPal and my new iPhone credit-card reader. (Everyone and their cousins, too)

 

Saturday, February 16

4PM – Writing Media Tie‐Ins
Chesapeake 2
I and several of my peers will be talking about the art and business of writing licensed fiction for such famous franchises as Star Trek, Star Wars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and much more. (Keith DeCandido; Michael Jan Friedman; David Mack; Aaron Rosenberg)

5PM – Author Signing
Hotel Atrium
I’ll be available for autographs, photos, chit-chat, and book sales for about 90 minutes on Saturday afternoon. If you miss me at the Friday night book fair, this will be your chance to talk with me one-on-one. (Just little ol’ me)

 

Sunday, February 17

2PM – Music to Write By
Dulaney 2
I and several of my cohorts will discuss the role that music plays in our creative process as writers. (Bob Greenberger; David Mack; Kate Mason; Richard C. White; Lance Woods)

 

And that’s a full lid, folks.  See you in Timonium!

 

Thursday Evening Update

Have finished packing for Farpoint — clothes, shower kit, meds, books to sell, video-production gear, scripts, business cards. Boo-yah.

Pork loin is braising in milk on the stovetop while Kara makes a run to the supermarket for one last thing.

Debating whether to write tonight or just call the evening a loss and relax before getting up early tomorrow to travel…

My Farpoint 2010 Schedule

Along with many other notable luminaries of science fiction & fantasy, I will be a guest this weekend at Farpoint 2010 in Timonium, Md.

I will be lurking about throughout the weekend, and I will be available as often as possible to sign autographs, chat with fans, and (I hope) sell some books. My official schedule is fairly light, with only two events on Saturday, Feb. 13:

Noon–1pm in Chesapeake 2
“An Hour with David Mack & Glenn Hauman”
Presumably, we will be telling stories from our college days.

3pm–4pm in Dulaney 2
“An Hour with Author David Mack”
This will be a free-form Q&A and autograph session.

If you come to the con looking to chat with me and can’t seem to find me, just hang out in the hotel bar. You know I’ll have to show up there sooner or later…
