Conestoga is this weekend in Tulsa. Here’s my panel schedule:
E publishing, no advance houses and small presses
Sat 09:00 AM, Salon F. These are exciting times for small presses, e-publishers and e-authors. They’re also a bit unnerving. The e-publishing industry is still in its infancy and undergoing changes. Small presses fight an uphill battle on distribution. Publishers and authors share their perspectives. Participants: THE james k. burk; Babb, Gary; Gannon, Amanda; Stein, Allison; Burton, Jaci; Millitello, Deborah
The Merlene Show, presented by Yard Dog Press
Sat 04:30 PM, Regency. It’s the end of the world as we know it, but that doesn’t mean there can’t be TV! Come and see the filming of the first ever MERLENE SHOW. It’s just like the Martha Stewart show used to be – if she lived in a trailer park, had big hair, and built all her crafts with beer cans and Spam. Brought to you by Yard Dog Press and the Bubbas of the Apocalypse. Moderator: Rosen, Selina. Participants: Allen, Bill; Allen, Sally; Fletcher, Melanie Miller; Hale, Beverly A.; Bailey, Robin Wayne; Killough, Lee; Donahue, Linda; Ledbetter, William; Sixbury, Glenn; Sinor, Bradley H.; Sinor, Susan P.; Tatum, Mel; Stein, Allison; Hollaman, Jimmy; Burk, James; Mandala, Julia; Dean, Sherri
Story Illustration Workshop
Sun 10:00 AM, Salon H. Writers of the Future winner Matt Champine will bring a short story and our artists will talk about the process they go through in illustrating a work of fiction. Then, we’ll see if it works. Moderator: Picacio, John. Participants: Bradley, Peter; Anderson, David Lee; Stein, Allison; Gannon, Amanda; Champine, Matt
