It’s official! Today I received my final scheduling update for Balticon. I’m participating in four events:
- A Rapid-Fire-Reading with Some Other Members of Broad Universe
- “High Noon in Fantasyland” Panel (Did Fantasy Kill the Western?)
- What is Social Media? Panel
- Developing One-Liners to Pitch Your Book to Media Panel
I’m really looking forward to the Rapid Fire Reading. This is where I, and several other members of Broad Universe, get to read from something we’ve published or from works-in-progress. Because it’s “rapid fire,” the audience will hear only 5-7 minutes from each author. It gives several of us an opportunity to showcase our work and keeps listeners attentive because the subject matter changes frequently. All of the RFRs I’ve attended or participated in have played to packed rooms.
At first I was leery about participated in the “High Noon” panel…but after doing a little research and giving myself a chance to think about it…I’ve decided I do have an opinion on the matter. I’m really looking forward to the discussion.
I work with Social Media a lot with my day job — especially lately…but there are some very talented people on the panel who live and breathe by social media. It should be very informative for all who attend.
The One-Liners panel should be very good, too. I’m hoping to learn as much during the panel as I’m able to contribute.
