Did you realize that I'm leaving town for the first time in ten years for a five-day trip? BECAUSE I JUST DID


I'll go edit the previous entry, but here is the updated, less detailed version of my schedule--signings, panels, and meetups I am actually involved in are bolded; the rest are things I just want to go to (or are related events); say hi if you're going to them as well (you will know it's me by the ~press pass~):


MORNING: Vendors at America Mart. If you know where I can find a glass unicorn, LET ME KNOW.

2:30-3:30 PM: TWILIGHT ZONE FAN PANEL, Westin Peachtree 1-2

4:00-5:30 PM: ATHENA'S DAUGHTERS SIGNING, Jean Marie Ward and me, tables T38-39 in Pop Artist Alley (Grand Hall East in the Hyatt Regency, adjacent to the Dragon Con Art Show). I am bringing FIVE (5) MOVIES IN FIFTEEN MINUTES PAPERBACKS with me and will keep them out of sight and give them away if you ask about them, first come, first serve. I will also sign literally anything you bring, although let it be noted that there is actually a Black Ribbon story in the Athena's Daughters anthology.

EVENING: At some point after this, I may be able to meet up with some fannibal cosplayers; I'm not sure of the time or place yet.

8:30-9:30 PM: SLENDERMAN, PHANTOM CLOWNS, AND OTHER NIGHTMARES (creepypasta), Westin Peachtree 1-2


10:00-11:00 AM: ATHENA'S DAUGHTERS MEET & GREET PANEL, Marriott A708, Kaleidoscope track. I won't be able to attend, but: "Meet the talented ladies behind the wildly popular Athena's Daughters Anthology, featuring heroines of all ages & stories for the entire family. Jean Marie Ward, Gail Z. Martin, Diana Peterfreund, Janine K. Spendlove, Ronald Thomas Garner."

1:00-2:00 PM: HANNIBAL FANNIBAL PANEL. Westin Peachtree 1-2. Catherine Scully, Karen E. Taylor, Damien Williams (@wolven), Freddie (@tattle_crime, calling in), and me, with Henry Hanks (@hankscnn) moderating. THINGS WILL BE GIVEN AWAY. THERE WILL BE A RAFFLE. BE THERE.

1:00-2:00 PM: ATHENA'S DAUGHTERS SIGNING, Janine Spendlove, tables T38-39 in Pop Artist Alley.

3:00-4:00 PM: FANNIBAL MEETUP, somewhere in the Westin, to be announced at end of fan panel. Freddie will call in again; we will give away even more stuff, including Aromaleigh This Is My Design eyeshadow, and there will be cards for y'all to sign. I have blocked off 3:00-5:00 on my schedule, just in case.


7:00-8:00 PM: PENNY DREADFUL FAN PANEL, Westin Peachtree 1-2. I'm going to be hanging out at the Westin a lot, as you can tell.

I'm hearing something about a quiz event? I will probably end up at the Saturday one.


1:00-2:00 PM: JOURNALISM AND SF, Hyatt Embassy A-B--foresthouse's panel (I'm staying with her as well).

1:00-3:00 PM: ATHENA'S DAUGHTERS SIGNING, just me, tables T38-39 in Pop Artist Alley (again: Grand Hall East in the Hyatt Regency).

4:00-5:00 PM: SLEEPY HOLLOW FAN PANEL, Westin Peachtree 1-2

5:30-6:30 PM: FANNIBAL MEETUP, Hilton 5th floor. I'm not organizing this one, so I get to relax. I think there will also be a giveaway at this one as well.


10:00-11:00 PM: DREAM LOGIC AND MURDER WIZARDRY: PSYCHOLOGY AND HANNIBAL LECTER, Westin Peachtree 1-2. Damien and I will teal-deer it up for your enjoyment, and I have a flower crown with a tiny ravenstag in it.


11:00 AM-12:00 PM: ATHENA'S DAUGHTERS SIGNING, Gail Z. Martin and Diana Peterfreund, tables T38-T39 in Pop Artist Alley.

11:30 AM-12:30 PM: VICTORIAN TECHNOLOGY, Westin Augusta 1-2.

1:00-2:00 PM: SPIRIT MEDIUMS OF THE 19TH CENTURY, Sheraton Augusta. Dammit, I am gonna have to hustle to get there.

If there are any stragglers still around, we could do some kind of meetup/hangout somewhere; I'm not leaving until Tuesday morning.

eep I'm excited! Unfortunately I can't make any of the Hannibal/Fannibal panels, sadface, but I'll swing by the signing table for sure!

I'm glad I've got multiple times/places/days to be around, yeah--hopefully I'll be moving around a bit on my own as well, but there ought to be a lot of different chances to meet people. Please do come by, I have a feeling I am going to be alooooone.

pretty vicariously excited about this, hoping it is awesome.

Well, y'all are gonna hear A LOT about it, so I'm hoping it's exciting for everyone at home. Heh.

Please select one of the following :)
a/ Planning to have a great time
b/ Planning to do something incredible
c/ planning to do something nervewracking
d/ planning to do something that will have you headless chicken mode beforehand but will come together when it is time.
e/ all of the above

All answers must be submitted in the form of a mild panic attack intermingled with outbursts of squee.

You know, I'm actually pretty satisfied with A. I'm not particularly nervous about any one thing, just the logistics of daily living and getting around and not losing things, and I think poor Damien is the one running around like a headless chicken because he's doing a lot more organizing than I am.

Sounds like you have everything sorted then!

Here's to you having a fulfilling yet not too over-exciting convention experience, so that you may return triumphantly to your hometown with a headful of awesome memories and not be as exhausted as you'd previously feared.


YESH. YESH. *beams*

I'm actually excited about this myself!


Um, you get the picture. lol

Sadly, all your panels conflict with other stuffs I'm doing. Makes me sigh because I've followed you on twitter, LJ, and Tumblr for a bit now and always wanted to say hello.

But hope you have a rockin' good time here in Atlanta! :D

Aw! Maybe there's some time in the somewhere.

Hope it is wonderful for you. And I have to congratulate you on the most beautiful packing job I have ever seen!

Masquerade: 8-11:00 Sunday night. You can watch it on Dragon*Con TV. Invite still stands! We're in the Hilton.

Ohhhhh, that's right through my Sunday panel.

Godspeed, Cleo, and have tons of fun!

Go Cleo! Dear DragonCon: Play nice. Don't make her turn this Con around.

So exciting! I know you'll have a wonderful time! And you are indeed packed as fuck, I envy your skilz--when I pack it always looks like I held up my valise in a windstorm of clothing!

You have a talent in packing. 👏👏👏 that's rare. Enjoy!!!

Awesome Tetris-Packing skills! :D
Go forth and conquer!

I will find youuuuuu! Probably!

Have fun! I'd go this year, but we're having company and school's started up again, so I have that to deal with. I hope to go again sometime in the future because I had a lot of fun last year, despite the pneumonia I caught... -_-

I'm leaving town for the first time in ten years for a five-day trip

It can be infective. You go for the first time.. then second.. then you travel more than you stay at home :)
