Countdown to DragonCon

See this tshirt? You can get a free ebook if you ask the person wearing it for one.

This week I’ll be joining about 90,000 of similarly minded folk for one of the East coast’s largest fan-run convention– DragonCon, baby!  It runs from 8/30 to 9/3. If you’ve never heard of it, you can check out the details here

Look for me in the crowd. (I’m the one cosplaying as “Mid-List Author”.) Be sure to say hello. I’ll be giving away limited edition FREE ebook promo cards.

I’ll be on four panels this year. Very exciting! Here’s the lineup:
