The latest (last?) Swancon progress report is online, including the current version of the program.
Some time back Russell Farr asked me whether I'd be interested in doing a panel on professional promotion. Now, I don't do a lot of panels at cons, mainly because you could pick almost any topic and there'll be someone at the con with more knowledge and/or experience of that topic than myself. Or at least, someone more willing to talk about it. (I don't mind public speaking - I regularly talk about writing, my books and myself to gatherings of schoolkids, and if you ever want to find a tough audience ...)
Anyway, I said yes, and I was pleased to see the panel listed in the program.
Time: Friday 3pm
About: Professional Promotion
Panelists: Russell Farr, Matthew Reilly, Angela Challis and myself.
By the way, "Professional promotion" is the kind where you don't need a thick skin and lots of very forgiving friends.
