Here is the final schedule of panels I’ll be on at Penguicon next month. I’m excited. I’m on a bunch of panels that look like fun, and I’m even scheduled for a book signing along with a bunch of other writers. I’m happy that they have a scheduled book signing, since I’ll be on so many panels I don’t know how much time I’ll have to try and sell books others wise.
And remember–I’ll be giving out free CDs with (at least) the first three episodes of the podcast. Haven’t decided yet if the CD will be data or audio (.MP3s or not).
