Just a quick note to tell you about my schedule at Can-Con.
Book launch of Blood and Water. Short readings by Kate Heartfield, Jean-Louis Trudel, Derek Künsken, and Agnes Cadieux. There will be books on sale at 25% off (special offer good for launch only). And Snacks!
Friday 8 p.m
OPENING CEREMONIES -- I have a speech. I promise to be bright, brief and bold. I'll try to be funny too. Your mileage may vary.
Friday 9 p.m.
Blood and Water Party. It's in my suite. Watch for the signs. There will be snacks. There will be drinks. At midnight, I turn into a Troll and ask you to leave. It's also my bedroom.
Kaffeeklatch. Bring your own coffee. It's not in the bar. Room 2, I think. Come chat, ask questions. It's after 12 so I should be fit to answer them. (Thank you Derek for not scheduling me on the morning after I host a party)
