I love getting out of the house and meeting fans and friends, and I had a wonderful time doing just that this year. I only have a few more public events left in 2017. If you wind up at any of them, be sure to say stop and say hi.
I’m speaking at the inaugural Madison Game Development Conference, a.k.a. M+DEV. If you’re anywhere nearby and are interested in working on video games for a living, this looks like it’s going to be a phenomenal conference. The keynote speaker is Warren Spector (Ultima, Thief, Wing Commander, System Shock, Deus Ex, Epic Mickey), and the endnote speaker is Tommy Palm (Resolution Games, Candy Crush Saga). It’s going to rock.
I’m one of the guests at the brand-new, one-day Comic Fest at the Menomonee Falls Library, situated in a lovely Milwaukee suburb. I’m not sure who else will be there, but knowing the organizers, there will be a good number of comics and genre fiction pros. Admission is free, and every attendee gets a free comic and a swag bag, while supplies last. Come out and join us for a bunch of four-color fun!
Wisconsin has a wealth of excellent gaming conventions, probably due to the fact that roleplaying games were born here. That and the fact it’s so cold here during the winter that you’ll take any good excuse to get together with friends and have fun.
I’ll be a guest once again at this fantastic show, held at the Alliant Energy Exhibition Center in Madison. My kids and I had a wonderful time here last year, and I’m sure you will too if you join us.
