I have my schedule for ArmadilloCon in Austin this weekend. Since I’ll be moderating a couple of these, I’ll get to sound official!
(Reminders about Giveaways at the bottom.)
Researching Your Book Fri 5:00 PM-6:00 PM Ballroom E
Blaschke, Cheney*, Moyer, Osborne, Thomas, Wood
Where to look, who to ask, what to do? How much is too much? What do you do with all the research that doesn’t fit in the book?
Stump the Panel: Make Up an SF/F Use for an Everyday Object Sat 10:00 AM-11:00 AM Ballroom D
Cheney*, Mandala, Stoddard, Rose, Rountree
The audience supplies the items, and the panel provides the imagination.

Performing Major Surgery on Your Novel Sun Noon-1:00 PM Ballroom F
Cargill, Cheney*, Chu, Marmell, Sarath, Wood
When do you know it’s time for a major redo of your novel? What do you do when an editor asks for a severe change in word count, to delete or add a subplot, or change the viewpoint character? Is it best to cut with precision, or chuck it all and start over?
So that’s what I’ll be doing at ArmadilloCon (when I’m not holed up in my room eaditing!)
If you’re in the Austin area, you should definitely come and see the show ;o)
There’s a giveaway running through this Wednesday on GoodReads for copies of The Shores of Spain.
And the Rafflecopter giveaway still has 10 days left!
