Well, the New Year is just around the corner, and already I am getting information about conventions and events for 2012.
I will share those updates as they come in, and of course, keep my Appearances on robinhobb.com up to date as well.
The first event of the New Year (after First Night in Tacoma, of course!) will be Confusion. Confusion is a convention held at the Detroit Marriott in Troy, Michigan from January 20 to 22.
This year I will be attending, and will definitely be at the following events at the convention, as well as wandering about in between!
Opening Ceremonies on Friday night at 8 PM
I’ll be doing a reading on Saturday at 1 PM
A panel on Care and Feeding of the writer on Saturday, 4 PM. Heads up! ELIZABETH BEAR, Jim Hines, Catherine Schaffer and Gretchen Ash are also part of this panel.
The MASS AUTOGRAPH session on Saturday at 5PM
At 8 PM Saturday, a panel called Reviews and Criticism. Gretchen Ash, Howard Andrew Jones, Jason Sanford and Christine Purcell are also panelists.
And on Sunday at 11 AM, Small Stories in Epic Fantasy panel, with Bradley Beaulieu, PATRICK ROTHFUSS, Jason Sanford and BRENT WEEKS. Caps are yes, excited shouting.
So that is for ConFusion in January!
Now, a bit more distant in the year is the Tucson Festival of Books in March. I have rumors to share! I know of two panels that I expect to be on. The first is called The Return of High Fantasy. My co-panelists include Terry Brooks, Judith Tarr, Dennis McKiernan and Naomi Novik. The second panel is called World Building Workshop, and my fellow panelists will be Jeff Mariotte, Sam Sykes, Maxwell Alexander Drake and Dennis McKiernan.
And an entirely new rumor to share! There is a chance that I will be at RT Booklovers Convention held April 11 to 15th at Rosemont, Illinois. The Chicago Comic Con is the same weekend. Would love to drop in on that! But as of now, these are not confirmed quite yet. Do let me know if you’d come by and see me at either event!
And now back to my regularly scheduled holiday craziness.
