On Wednesday, February 26, I’ll be participating in an event about media tie-in publishing, as a part of GEEK WEEK at Housing Works Books. Here’s the low-down on the event:
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 from 7:00pm–8:30pm
The bookshelves are full of fiction based on Star Trek and Star Wars and Halo and Batman and Doctor Who and tons more TV shows, movies, videogames, and comic books. Writing these books is a great deal of fun, but the life of a writer of media tie-in fiction is also full of pitfalls galore.
Join three tie-in veterans — New York Times best-selling author DAVID MACK (Star Trek, The 4400, Farscape, Wolverine), award-winning author KEITH R.A. DeCANDIDO (Star Trek, Doctor Who, World of Warcraft, Cars), and editor GINJER BUCHANAN (Star Wars, Conan, Leverage, Marvel Comics) — for an in-depth discussion moderated by Singularity & Co.‘s CICI JAMES.
This event is free and open to the public. Food, snacks, beer, and wine will be available for purchase from the in-store café. (Please don’t bring outside food or beverages to the store.)
Housing Works is an all-donation, volunteer-staffed, nonprofit bookstore; all of its proceeds go to fight homelessness and AIDS. It buys no books, so if you have any tomes you’d like to donate, bring them with you!
