I'd thought this was going to be a slow summer -- maybe go to Comic Con, maybe try to set up some kind of event with yaytime
-- but as it turns out, June and July are going to be pretty crazy! I've added a little sidebar thing on my journal with all the events I'm currently planning to be at, but here are some of the details in case anyone's curious.Signings for Zuko's Story and the Last Airbender adaptation
Dave and I (and in at least one case, adaptation artist Joon Choi
) will be doing a few events tied to the Airbender books we co-wrote. The specifics of these are still being pinned down, but as of now the schedule seems to be:
June 26th -- Nordstrom at the Roosevelt Field Mall, 12-3PM
June 27th -- Nordstrom at the Paramus Mall (with Joon!), 12-3PM
July 2nd -- Kinokuniya
at Bryant Park
We're trying to get a couple other things put together, particularly at book/comic shops, so you know...more as it develops! I hope to see some of you there -- I'm actually really nervous about this sort of thing! O__OConventions
July 16th -- Keynote Luncheon at Infinitus
I've been invited to be part of a panel of "fan writers turned pro" at Infinitus, a Harry Potter conference in Florida. My co-panelists will be Naomi Novik
, R.J. Anderson
and Karen Healey
, and I'm pretty excited about it! If you're planning to be at Infinitus, you can find find more info about the luncheon here
. I'm hoping I'll be able to catch up with some old friends from my days in HP fandom, many of whom I haven't seen in years.
July 22nd-25th -- San Diego Comic Con
No details yet, but Dave and I (and possibly Zuko's Story artist Nina Matsumoto!) will be there, so there will be at least a signing of some kind. More info once I have it!
October 8th-10th -- New York Comic Con
My buddy E.K. Weaver
and I will have a table! And hopefully I'll have something awesome and Chronin-related put together by then! WOO!
I've always loved having an artist alley table at cons -- it's such a great opportunity to get to talk to other creators and fans whom you might not otherwise meet. Fingers crossed that this summer continues that trend!
