The Stuff of Legends – Book Signings & Convention Panels

Early next month, I’ll be participating in another live convention, one I haven’t attended in years – CONvergence in Minneapolis, MN. This year’s theme is The Stuff of Legends, spanning August 5-8, and I have the pleasure of being an invited participant.

This means I’ll not only be on several panels but offering two separate book signing opportunities for fans.

CONvergence is sold out for in-person attendance, but there are ways to enjoy the convention virtually. They are working out whether they will stream and/or record panels, and you can stay up to date at their website:

Here’s what you can expect from me, and I would love to hear from you what you’d like me to answer at panels. I’ll provide a recap after the event.
