Off to Vegas

This Monday, I’ll be in Las Vegas at the annual GAMA Trade Show, hosting a couple seminars. According to the descriptions in the GTS program guide, they are:

Monday, 11 am–Noon:
Getting Your Game Published
Come learn how to submit your games to publishers and get them published. Discover the obstacles you may face in getting your game on shelves, and discuss strategies for overcoming them. Explore the option of self-publishing your game instead. (Skyview 1)

Monday, 2–3 p.m.:
Career Freelancing
Getting your first game, book, or article published is only the first step. To keep from being a flash in the pan, you need to educate yourself about how to turn your hobby into a business. Learn how to set up your business, act professionally, pay taxes, and get that next gig—and the next and the next and the next. (Skyview 1)

Other than that, I’ll wander around, see what’s new, have a few meetings, catch up with friends, and make new ones. I’m only at the show through the end of Tuesday, so if you’re there and want to see me, be sure to drop me a line or hunt me down as early as you can.

  1. I rarely gamble when I go to Vegas. It’s been years, in fact. I often did when I first started coming out to the show, almost 20 years ago, but as a game designer I understand the games too well and how they’re solidly stacked against me. I prefer to play poker with people I know. At least that way, if I lose, my friends end up with my cash.
