Convention update

So kijjohnson was busy writing and not feeling well, so I got moving late and went to ConQuest by myself today. Though I missed sitting at the table during today's scheduled panel, I did get to hand out a big stack of info sheets I put together about the Center's Basic SF Library, plus a big stack of the Center's new flyers (designed and put together by clevermanka).

Talked with a whole bunch of people, and got more Center business done there than I have in a long time. Good stuff! Also got to see several friends I haven't seen much lately.

I'm fighting my f&ck*%#! printer right now, trying to print out flyers about this summer's Campbell Conference, plus the materials for tomorrow morning's reading at 11:30am. kijjohnson will be reading at 1:00pm, so we'll get to be at the con together! Then I have a panel at 3pm, "Writing for the Younger Audience," which I'm moderating, and dinner with Joe and Gay Haldeman. I expect we'll see lots of other folks there!

Tomorrow's update tomorrow.

Best,
Chris

How did I miss seeing you? I was there from 3:30 to 9 but tended to stay either by the elevators or in the non-smoking consuite.

Well, I had a 3:00pm panel, visited the art show, dealer's room, and auction room, then was doing the con-biz thang in the hallways with various folks, then had dinner with Ruth and Bill, then headed home.

Was there all day Sunday, too. Only klingonguy and kijjohnson made it to my reading :-( but they were a great audience.

More later!

And a truly enjoyable reading it was too; quite honestly one of the highlights of the convention for me.

Thank you, sir! It was great to see you, too, and your book project is the coolest thing ever. Could you please reply with a path to the website with that info? I'll also re-post it as a new LJ entry and put it on the CSSF website.

Best,
Chris

I'm only too happy to provide a link to theGiveBooks website. Send everyone there!

Which reminds me, I need to find time to update the contributors' page. We've more than doubled the number that's listed, and if some people I spoke with keep their promises, we'll be giving it another significant bump in the next week or so.

Even so, there's no such thing as too many books. And please, encourage published authors to talk to their publishers about this too. The troops will happily read new books too. ;)

Not announcing that I added you may be rude or backwards by livejournal standards, SO...

Hi, Chris McKitterick, with whom I have not yet really spoken but with whom I share an English Department.
