I'll Be At the Necronomicon in a Few Weeks!

The Necronomicon is a sci-fi/fantasy/horror/gaming convention that has been going on for over 30 years in the Tampa Bay area. I’ve been there every year for about the past seven years. This year, I’ll be doing several writing panels, and you’ll find me wandering about the whole rest of the weekend. I’ll have books for sale (although I won’t have a table because they sold out in about two minutes this year). 
Here is the info on the con, and a list of the panels I’ll be on. This will be a new experience for me--I've never hosted panels before and it looks like this year I'm hosting two! 
If you're in the Tampa, FL, area, come visit me! Registration is $35 (includes all three days) through Sept. 24, then jumps to $50. They can only hit 900 this year due to space limitations, so register now online--link below:

Sounds exciting. Good luck with the panel discussions. I'm trying Last Request as an audio book through ACX. Already have a contract with a narrator. Will any of your panel discussions be recorded?

As far as I know, the sessions are not recorded. They never have been in the past, and I don't foresee them doing so this year. But I will be taking notes myself on others' experiences and suggestions, and I will gladly share that with you, long with my own experiences.
