But that is not to be!

I am going to be a guest at Infinitus 2010, a gigantic Harry Potter convention being held in Orlando, Florida from July 15-18. I'll be on a panel for Friday's Keynote Luncheon with Naomi Novik, RJ Anderson, Ali Wilgus, Peg Kerr and Karen Healey, discussing Becoming a Professional Writer Lady.

And my scheduling looks somewhat like this.

FRIDAY Noon - Our Fancy Luncheon, in the Pacifica 6 Room, where everyone else will talk intelligently and I will blither about my Life Experiences.

FRIDAY directly after lunch - Everyone is signing in the Vendor Room until at least 2:30 - feel free to stay longer.

SATURDAY 11 - Noon in Banda Sea Room

Three authors for the price of one!

Karen Healey, RJ Anderson and your humble servant will be doing readings from our novels, and also giving away prizes, and also doing a big Q&A so that any questions that don't get answered on Friday/if you can't make it Friday, you will still have all the answers in the world! So many answers, we have.

Also, Embarrassing Stories. Maybe that's just me.

SATURDAY Noon - 12:30 - Karen, Rebecca and Sarah are signing in the Vendor Room

So - looking forward, somewhat nervously, to this! I have not been to Florida since I was about twelve, when my parents decided swimming with sharks would be a way more hardcore activity than swimming with lousy dolphins.

But I should save up my embarrassing stories, obviously...

Another reason for me to be rather jealous I am not living in the US. They get Harry Potter World and now this? Damn my Englishness, although not really of course, because I can pretend to have some odd traditions. : )

This sounds so epic. I wish you all the greatest time.

Also, you have better bacon.

I am guessing it would be totally inappropriate to bring a nice copy of DDG for you to sign as well? XD

I thought I wasn't going to this, but actually I AM! I need to meet you!
Jul. 6th, 2010 09:25 pm (UTC)
Hooray Jaclyn! Can't wait to meet you! Oh, I shall bring my copy of Magic Under Glass for you to sign!

Horray! I will be there! And I will bring my books for signing. I didn't think I could be anymore excited for next week!
Jul. 6th, 2010 09:42 pm (UTC)
Ooh fun!!
Jul. 6th, 2010 09:48 pm (UTC)
So excited! Will definitely be bringing books and being overly-fangirly.
Jul. 6th, 2010 09:54 pm (UTC)
OMG. This is the first I've heard of this event, so don't know if I can make the drive up from West Palm or not. Bugger.

Any chance you might be making any stops down in South FL while you're here? :)

I wish! My publicist tried to get me a bookshop event, but apparently Floridians have things to do besides go to bookshops! I admit swimming with sharks is a little cooler than seeing me...
Jul. 6th, 2010 10:10 pm (UTC)
SQUEEEE!!!! I shall do my best to make it to the Saturday event.
Jul. 6th, 2010 10:53 pm (UTC)
Being a Floridian who has had to travel to Orlando for conventions for several years, if you are going to trying sightseeing I strongly advise you get a map. Not that it will help you with getting around the city whatsoever, but it will be comfort to know that if the city made any sense at all, the map would help.

Honestly, Orlando is a maze of highways, intersections, skyscrapers, parks, gated communities and disreputable parks. Lovely people, but sometimes one strongly wishes that googlemaps could be programmed into our heads.

You are SO getting glomped by me. But it will be a lovely, consensual glomp, because you will see the look on my face and be unable to disappoint me. :D
Jul. 6th, 2010 10:58 pm (UTC)
Meaning, I presume, that you'll be visiting the Harry Potter world at Universal Studios?? If so, I beg of you, take many pictures and post them!! We all will await your report with bated breath!

Re: Pictures?
I don't think so, I'm sorry to disappoint! This is a my-books trip. As are most of my trips! Though someday I hope to have an umbrella-drinks trip...

Also pegkerr in the panel. :)

All four of us will be there, although not at the luncheon. Hopefully we can run into each other at some point!!

Duly edited, I thank you!

I look forward to hearing about the glorious madness that shall ensue when you happen to be put into the same room as Naomi Novik.

It's going to hurt, I know, but a GOOD hurt.

Naomi Novik is one of the most awesome people who ever live. Have an amazing time!
Jul. 7th, 2010 12:54 am (UTC)
Karen and RJ are awesome too: it'll be a weekend of me being shown up by the others. ;) But since they're all awesome, I won't mind.
