I enjoy being a hermit. That is absolutely true.
But I also enjoy getting out and meeting readers and talking books and listening to panels. So I have begun to make my plans for 2024. I may add some events, but for now, these are the ones on my schedule.
Feb 29 to March 3, 2024 are the dates for Emerald City Comic Con at the Convention Center in Seattle Washington. I've applied for my professional pass, which hasn't come through just yet, but I'm fairly sure they will let me in. I probably won't be there for all the days, as driving from Roy to Seattle is a harrowing experience. But I will most likely be there for the Saturday, and will likely sign at the University Book Store booth. I will update this information as I know more. For now, passes are still on sale and you can find them at https://.www.EmeraldCityComicCon.com .
UPDATE TO EMERALD CITY COMIC CON SCHEDULE.
On Friday, March 1, I will be on a Dark Horse panel at 3;30 in the Summit 431 room. Fantasy Storytelling in Comics; with Jody Houser, Jim Zub, and possibly a few other folks TBD.
On Saturday, March 2 from 2-3 PM, I will be signing at the University Book Store booth.
Then, from 3:30 to 4:30, I will be at Booth 20515 in Book World. I will be signing and giving away free copies of Assassin's Apprentice. Limited supply so don't be late!
May 24-26 I will be a guest at Phoenix Fan Fusion in Phoenix Arizona. I will be there for all three days. I haven't attended this one before so I'm not sure what to expect, except a lot of fun!
June 28-30 Isle of Wonder is a new fantasy festival to be held on Cres, Crete. I will not be there, unfortunately, but I do look forward to doing a virtual event with them. Again, I will update details here as I get them.
July 24-28 Comic-Con International in San Diego, also fondly known as SDCC or San Diego Comic Con. I've been to this HUGE convention several times and it never fails to amaze me. I don't have an official schedule for this one, but hope to attend many panels and renew conecitons to the sf/fantasy/comic world.
That is all for now. I will probably not be making any journeys that involve long, overseas flights. That saddens me, but the mere thought of getting on an airplane and flying all those hours makes me exhausted. Maybe next year.
I will continue to drop in at University Book Store in Seattle, Washimgton, to autograph stock for them and to sign special orders. I get up there only about once a month, so if you want a signed book for a special occasion, please order early. And be patient!
