Two weeks from now, Book Expo America (BEA) begins, followed by BookCon and with those, Tor Books is celebrating 35 years of publishing. They’ve got some special things cooked up, including a Tor: The Next Generation! quiz show … and I’ll be there! (I’m now wondering if there will be TNG shirts, and if so, what color…) Let me know if you’ll be there… (If you can’t make it, I’ll be posting picspam from my first BEA over on instagram, tumblr, and probably twitter too.)
Here’s my schedule! :
Thursday, May 28
10:45-11:15 am- Uptown Stage – Tor Presents: The Next Generation! [Add to your show planner]
Host John Scalzi (The End of All Things) introduces Ilana Myer (Last Song Before Night,) Lawrence M. Schoen (Barsk: The Elephant’s Graveyard), Seth Dickinson (The Traitor Baru Comorant), and Fran Wilde (Updraft) with a rousing game of “Would You Rather: The SFF Edition” – come see what makes us tick!
1:00-2:00 pm – Tor Authors Autographing Session: Fran Wilde & Lawrence M. Schoen -Table 8 – [Add to your show planner]
I’ll have copies of Updraft! This is amazing and also really cool … but wait there’s more… I’ll also have a pen! (Probably more than one.) Come by and I will personalize a copy of Updraft for you! (I’m really excited about this, if you can’t tell. I might even get some new ink for the pen just to celebrate.)
Saturday, May 30
10:30-11:30 am – Tor.com’s Crowd-Sourced Storytelling Event [Add to show planner]
Join me, Lawrence M. Schoen, and Seth J. Dickinson — fall Tor debut authors all — for a collaborative round of storytelling, staring YOU. Or at least staring your ideas. Suggestions will be taken from the audience, and we’ll make a story out of it… or a hilarious mess, you be the judge. Livetweeting welcome! Follow the Bookbrag tumblr for more info!
Prizes and giveaways will abound — join us!
I’m looking forward to my first BEA & BookCon – those of you who have been before, hope you’ll share your survival tips!
