My Origin's Schedule

As I've posted before, I'll be launching my first YA Lit novel, War of the Seasons: The Human at Origins Game Fair June 22nd-26th, 2011. One of the really exciting things I'll get to do there is be a part of several panels/seminars - now the official schedule isn't out, but I do know the names of the panels I get to be on & when I'll get to do my reading of my book. And of course, when I'm not at a panel, I'll be at my table in the Author's room in between Bryan Young and Mike Stackpole. COLOR ME EXCITED! Dancing 10 SO, what panels am I going to be on? Here you go (be warned, this schedule is subject to change - nothing is official until the convention program is out - and even then something could change): Thursday, the 23rd - My BIRTHDAY, BTW ;) 1 PM: Author Meet and Greet. Origins' Writers' Symposium (aka The Library) has brought together a group of highly talented and bestselling authors who will spend the convention teaching classes, doing readings, hosting meals and gaming. This is your chance to meet them on an informal basis before the festivities begin. 2 PM: Quick Critiques. Did you have a few manuscript pages in your game bag? Fiction or game material will suffice. Our authors will look at up to three pages of it and offer you an on-the-spot critique. Don't pass up this opportunity for some free one-on-one advice. Authors available: Jean Rabe, Janine Spendlove, Bryan Young, VJ Waks. 3 PM: When the Villain is the Hero. Can your main character be something less than a knight-in-shining armor? There's something definitely attractive about a "bad boy." If carefully executed, you can make the star of your story downright dirty. We provide insight in how to handle the anti-protagonist. Janine Spendlove, Bryan Young [...]

  1. Hi Janine, just wondering if you got to meet V.J. Waks at the seminar? I read a very interesting interview with her on AuthorHouse Authors in the Spotlight
    How is your book War of the Seasons being received?

    1. Linford, yes, I definitely got to meet V.J. She was wonderful! :)

      War of the Seasons is being quite well received. Thanks for asking!
