AND I AM PACKED AS FUCK
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~):
FRIDAY, AUGUST 29
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
SATURDAY, AUGUST 30
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.
AT SOME POINT I WILL FEED
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.

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.
I MUST REST
