I will be at Comicpalooza this weekend, May 22-25. This is the biggest convention I’ve ever been to and I’m looking forward to it. A media con is a vastly different creature from a literary convention, and I am preparing myself to be overwhelmed.

I was interviewed by AFK for the convention, which you can find here:
