Tomorrow we’ll be getting up bright and early to catch a bus to New York City. This is only my second time going to NYC and the first time we’ve attended the Stoker awards. I’m looking forward to seeing Mike Arnzen and Mark McLaughlin again, plus we’ll meet mysterious author J.M. Heluk for the first time. Hopefully we’ll also run into Linda Addison and Lisa Mannetti. It’s exciting but really I’m not such a people person so it can be taxing too.
We’ll be arriving around 12:30 to check in at the hotel. Then we’ll be attending the signing from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at Borders Books, Columbus Circle. There’s going to be a ton of authors signing including Mike Arnzen.
After that there’s an Editor Q&A Moderated by Matt Schwartz (Shocklines) which sounds very interesting:
“Come spend some time with the top editors in the large and small press. Panelists include Melissa Ann Singer (Tor), Don D’Auria (Leisure), Sharyn November (Viking), Sean Wallace (Prime/Wildside Press), Richard SanFilippo (Bantam), and Paul Miller (Earthling Publications).”
Then of course there will be the banquet and the awards. I think it’s going to be a looong day.
