My ArmadilloCon schedule. It’s an interesting mix. The con has not scheduled readings or signings. I will post my reading schedule as soon as I know it. I will have copies of The Crow God’s Girl for sale as well, and you should be able to find my other books in the dealer’s room. The full con schedule is here.

I’m really bummed because I’m not going to be able to come this year 🙁 I’ll miss you and all the things I love about the con!

J. Kathleen Cheney · July 20, 2012 at 8:13 am

That looks like an interesting spread ;o)

Patrice Sarath · July 23, 2012 at 8:35 pm

yup! Just added my reading time on Saturday. Just before the dinner hour.

I will be there! Funny because I only planned to go to hear Chloe Neill…. But then the schedule came out and now I’m fully embracing my inner book geek and going Fri and Sat ;). So I read primarily two genres: urban fantasy/ vampire books and spin offs of Pride and Prejudice. – strange combo I know. So it surprised me when I was eyeballing a new P&P book when I realized I recognized the author name from the ArmadilloCon schedule. Lol. Took it as a sign and ordered The Unexpected Miss Bennett. Bringing it with me to your signing Saturday 🙂

Excellent! Looking forward to it! And it’s not a strange combo; you would be surprised at the number of people writing fantasy that is Regency-flavored. (Well okay, it’s a little strange, but you are in good company.)

Jennifer Collier · July 23, 2012 at 9:56 pm

You’re right – I guess that is true! I’m in the middle of a version right now where Darcy and Wickham are vampires. My first time to come to the conference so I’m excited.
