I'll be a guest at the New Orleans area CONtraflow 3 convention this coming weekend, October 18-20. It's being held at the DoubleTree Hilton near the New Orleans airport in Kenner, Louisiana. Kenner is a suburb of New Orleans. The Con link is:

The phone for the hotel is:  504-467-3111

Here's my schedule at present.

The Pulp Writers: Robert E. Howard and Beyond, Friday, 4pm, Panel Rm 2

Exploring Dreams and Nightmares, Friday, 8pm, Panel Rm 3

The Truths of Self Publishing, Saturday, 3pm, Joey Grillot Memorial Movie Rm

Getting Published, Sunday, 10am, Panel Rm 2

I did some similar panels last year and they were well attended and we had a lot of fun. If you happen to be anywhere in the area, it's a great con.  Big enough to be interesting but small enough to feel pretty intimate. 

All are welcome, whether you're big into SF/Fantasy or not.

Looks like fun. It's been a long time since I visited a con. I remember meeting George Takei and it was between the first Trek film and THE WRATH OF KHAN. My God, that's over thirty years! Getting old!

Sounds interesting, and fun. Wish I could be there, but I'll be in Savannah that weekend. Maybe next year.

Break a leg, Charles.

ivan said...

Wow. Impressive.
All I ended up with was a coffee house gig, poorly attended. :)

Charles Gramlich said...

Vesper, I think I will.

David, at my age I wouldn't be too sure.

Ivan, we'll see how many folks show up for my panels. Actually, last year they were pretty well attended.
