Comic-Con, Here I Come!

I’m taking off tomorrow for sunny San Diego for Comic-Con. My first seminar is on Friday at 11:30 AM in Room 1B: “Competing for the Young Adult Mind with Words and Pictures.” The fabulous Maryelizabeth Hart (of Mysterious Galaxy fame) moderates the panel, and I’ll try to keep up with her and Holly Black (game-industry refugee and Spiderwick Chronicles author), Shane Berryhill (Chance Fortune), Tony DiTerlizzi (adventure gaming artist who illustrated the Spiderwick Chronicles and—get this—created the cover to the upcoming Peter Pan in Scarlet), Tim Eldred (adventure gaming artist and author of Grease Monkey) , and Anne Ursu (author of The Cronus Chronicles). We’ll have a group signing after that from 12:30 to 1:30 PM.

On Saturday, at 11 AM, I’m moderating “Getting Published in Gaming” in Room 24A. The brave souls joining me include Jamie Chambers (of Margaret Weis Productions), Phil Lacefield (of Paizo), Lee Hammock (freelance game designer), Tony Parker (freelance artist), Jeff Tidball (of Atlas Games), Seth Johnson (of WizKids), Christopher Appel (freelance artist), and fellow Alliterates member Stan! (of Upper Deck).

Later that day, I’ll be signing books at the Wizards of the Coast booth from 3:00 to 3:30 PM. Check out the entire Wizards signing schedule for details about Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman, and R.A. Salvatore’s signings too.

If you’ll be at the show, be sure to hunt me down and say hi. I’m looking forward to seeing all sorts of old friends and making new ones too.
