FanX, Salt Lake City Comic Convention

Looks like I’m confirmed for FanX, the Salt Lake City Comic Convention.  It was a genuine blast last year. I’d never been to Salt Lake City before. This year, I’ll make a greater effort to get around to more of the city than just the convention center.  I can’t wait!

Have a manuscript burning a hole in your computer, but don’t know how to approach the book business? Or have you started writing and want to know what you should do to get published once you finish your book?

I will be part of a special Author & Agent panel on Wednesday, November 29th with my literary agent, Sara Megibow, and we’re going to tell you about what it takes to get a book in print!
