I’m a guest again at DragonCon, Atlanta’s awesome multi-media convention! Well, guest is a strong word; I’m an “attending professional”. I’m going to call myself a guest, though, for simplicity. So, I’m a guest! Woot!
This is the convention where I get to see some very special people I don’t see all that often and get to talk on awesome panels for large crowds. Always intimidating, but also always amazingly fun! I’ll mostly be wandering the convention or hanging in the Gaming Dungeon that is the Hilton, but I have 3 panels that I’ll also be speaking on that I’m uber-excited about!

Did you catch that the first one is ALL me!?!??!?! I’m nervous, but I also know that I have a lot of info and encouragement to give to people hungry to enter the industry and make a name for themselves. Of course, I’m just not realizing that all my panels are on Friday. Wow! That’s going to be an exhaustively fun day, indeed. That also leaves my Saturday and Sunday completely open for craziness and games!
If you are coming to DragonCon, please try to make it out to one of my panels or try to track me down to say hi.
Until next time.
