Gen Con Plans
It’s been MONTHS since I posted an update here. That in itself is more of a personal disappointment than a fact with any real hard consequences . . . but it means that with the approach of Gen Con, people checking in here to see what I’ve been up to will find no information.
Wait . . . Gen Con? HOLY CATS! Gen Con is NEXT WEEK, guys!!!!
I’ve done a bad job of promoting it, but I’ve got A LOT going on during this year’s “4 Best Days in Gaming.” Foremost, for the first time in many years, I’ll actually be an EXHIBITOR at the show this year!
You ‘ll find me at the very end of the 1100 Aisle showing the world what I’ve got at AUTHORS AVENUE — Table S. Just go over by the media signing area at the back of the hall, turn around, and my table should be around there somewhere.
But I’m not JUST showing off . . . I’ll have thingies for sale . . . wondrous, magical thingies such as copies of The Littlest Shoggoth (and some of the lapel pins, too), my two fantasy coloring books (What Color Is Your Dragon? and Paint Your Face With Runes), a selection of the novels and short story anthologies I’ve gotten my words into over the years, two short children’s books I self-published, and a handful of art prints. I’ll probably even be doing original art sketches, if folks have any interest in such a thing.
What’s more, I have a NEW product that I’ll be premiering at the show. More on that in a separate post (sorry, but you’re going to have to come back to the site tomorrow if you want the scoop).
But lest you think I’ll spend the entire show scheming ways to make sales to gamers with weak-minds . . . errrrr . . . I mean, exquisite taste, I’ll also be speaking at a handful of seminars. If you simply want to anonymously enjoy my proclamations and worldly advice, you can join the crowds at the following events (check the registration book for locations).
WED. @9:00 — Diana Jones Award Ceremony
THU. @Noon — Launching a $100 PDF Publishing Empire
THU. @3:00 — Freelancing for Super Genius Games
FRI. @6:00 — The ENnie Awards Ceremony (where I’ll be performing “Sweet Transvestite” as part of the pre-show “entertainment” … NOT in make-up or fishnets)
SAT. @Noon — Kickstarters: Preparation & Communication
SAT. @3:00 — Time Management for Creatives
SUN. @11:00 — Running a Successful RPG Kickstarer
SUN. @Noon — Beginner Boxes, Quickplays, and Rules-Lite RPGs
If you’re going to be in Indy August 15–18, I hope to see you SOMEWHERE in town during the weekend. If not . . . well . . . I’ll miss you desperately and spend the whole time wishing you were there . . . but I won’t have time to slow down, there’s too much to do! NEXT year, be sure to come out to Gen Con!!!
