How to Scare People

It’s my turn over at the Inkpunks blog and I’m going to send you over there to check out my post. I wrote about what I learned from the workshop at VCon with Dan Wells on how to scare people. It’s great stuff, you should read it. I can say that without bragging because it’s really all just Dan’s great advice I’m repeating. Go! Now! Learn How to Scare People.

My VCon Schedule

I’m excited for VCon 38 this weekend! I’ll be on several panels and I’m doing two readings, one at the book launch on Friday night and one on my own on Saturday. This year we have great guests of honour including Dan Wells and Mur Lafferty. There’s always lots to do at VCon, panels, discussions, readings, the art show, gaming, dealers room, crafting and much more.

This year’s theme is pirates!

You can see the whole schedule online HERE. VCon is using the great site Sched.org, so you can choose lots of options for viewing. Say, for example, you wanted to find out when a particular guest was doing panels and readings (ahem) you can click on their name and see their entire schedule. To save you the trouble of clicking on my name, I’ve included my schedule below. The book launch is open to everyone, the panels and other reading I’m doing are part of the convention membership.

Come join the fun!
