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
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!
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
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
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
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!
