All about the Gottacon…

On February 1st and 2nd I was Guest of Honor at Gottacon, where I met many lovely and charming fans:


Gottacon is very gaming focused, with a single track of panel programming. I was on two panels: So You Want to Become a Published Author with Matt Hughes, Dave Duncan and T.J. Silver and Digital Rights Management: The Pros and Cons, with Wired author Jules Sherred and Karl Johanson. Both panels were expertly moderated by Sherred, who interviewed me for Geeky Pleasures last year when Blue Magic came out, and who has posted them on the same site.)

As we were talking writing and publishing, war raged on next door.


Getting invited to be a guest of honor had been on my career-related bucket list for a while. Getting to do it for the first time in Victoria, a city I love, was a delightful extra bonus. The organizers and fans were all very lovely and inviting, and the day was full of nice surprises. If you’re in the vicinity next year might enjoy playing games all day with like-minded spirits, I can’t recommend it enough.

And if you missed me, my next appearance will be at FanExpo Vancouver on April 21 and 22.
