I’m a panelist.
Did’ja ever sign up to play with some new kids and find out that you were getting more than you bargained for?
Because time, money, and distance, often make it impractical for me to play at a lot of conferences/festivals in the US, I seek out the on-line variety.
There was the short-lived-but-now-defunct, awesome Coyote-Con. (where I met quite a few of my ‘frogs’ **) The also awesome and eternal, and free, Muse Conference, (which is happening on 8th–14th October) where I pitched my book and landed a contract. And I think there’s one floating around for romance writers, and one for children’s writers. (Clar, do you know anything about that one?)
By means various and convoluted, (translation: I can’t remember) I came across the Bards and Sages eFestival of Words – Virtual Book Fair. I registered, and although the process seemed a bit more complex than usual, I thought nothing of it … until just the other day, when I received an email with ‘Preliminary Questions for Panelists’ in the subject line.
So, I am a panelist on the “Why We Love To See The Future Crumble Into Ash” forum, about post-apocalyptical stories.
…at 7pm EST!
… I have a list of questions to respond to!
… I am a panelist!
If you’re interested, it’s still possible to register even though the festival has started – don’t worry, you won’t end up a panelist!
