Since the 73rd Worldcon is being held in Spokane in a couple of weeks, practically my back yard, I’ll be there — along with some guy you may possibly have heard of, George R.R. Martin? and a few thousand other people. It will be my fifth Worldcon.I’ll be on a couple of panels, give a reading, attend a Kaffee Klatche with fans, and do some book signings at an official session, or just stop me in the hall.
I’ll also be at attending a RadCon tradition being picked up by SpoCon – Tea with the Duchess. The Duchess, of course, would be me.
If you’re coming to Sasquan, be sure and look me up. It’s always lovely to meet new people, and to see old friends!
My final schedule for the con from the official bulletin:
31 Flavors of Fantasy Devoured by Kids and Teens
Thursday 17:00 -17:45, 401C (CC)
Fantasy has become a catch all category for all of the subgenres featuring “fantastic” elements from action adventure to urban and epic fantasy, romantic fantasy, and more! How many sub genres are out there and what elements help to define them? Does the reader’s age affect the growth or definition of a subgenre? Join our panel of young adult and middle grade authors for a lively discussion that gives you a little taste of each sub-genre as they share some of their favorite works across the fantastic spectrum that help to define the various sub-genres.
Kaffee Klatche with Alma Alexander
Friday 10:00 – 10:45, 202A-KK2 (CC)
Join me and my fans for a small discussion. Coffee and snacks available for sale on the 2nd floor. Please come along and hear all about recent projects, and ones on the drawing board! I will ALSO have some special books on offer – a Kaffeeklattch special! Attendance is limited to nine, so come early. (Though I suspect we can squeeze in a few more if need be,)
Friday 14:00 – 14:45, Exhibit Hall B – (CC)
I’ll be available to sign books, along with Katherine Addison, Marissa Meyer, L. E.Modesitt, Jr., Stanley Schmidt, and Catherynne Valente.
Saturday 15:30 – 16:00, Spokane Falls Suite A/B (Doubletree)
I’ll be reading from one of my most recent works – Abducticon, Wolf or Random of The Were Chronicles, or maybe even something from Midnight at Spanish Gardens. I may give you a choice of material…
Tea Party with the Duchess
Saturday 19:00 – 1945, Grand Ballroom: Salon IV (Doubletree)
SpoCon presents a RadCon tradition; join us for Tea with the Duchess! (The Duchess, yes, that would be me.) Chose a delicate tea cup to represent your unique personality. Every tea cup is different! Enjoy a variety of teas and delicate snacks. This is an experience to enjoy that memories are made on!

When We Were Young
Sunday 11:00 – 11:45, 300C (CC)
Panelists share their favorite books from when they were teens, tweens, and children. Find out what books inspired their imaginations, which ones hooked them on SF and fantasy, and which ones made them want to try their own hand at creating stories. Are these books still inspiring today’s young minds? Which of today’s books might be tomorrow’s great memories?
