So New York Comic Con is this week, and I’m really excited.
I head to NYCC every year with Quirk, and I’ve been going there anyway for… well, years. I went a few times with Tim for the ol’ Geekadelphia, and I’ve gone plenty of times just for kicks. But this New York Comic Con is extra special.
Because it’s my first New York Comic Con signing books and hosting a Q&A. Saturday is going to be incredible.
SIGNING: On Saturday at New York Comic Con, from 11:00am to noon, I’ll be signing copies of The Geek’s Guide to Dating at the Quirk Books booth. I’ll be joined by my friend (and upcoming Quirk author) Sam Maggs, who will be signing The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy posters.
I’m really excited about this, particularly because Sam’s book is going to be incredible. We wrote together on Geekosystem for a while, before it was absorbed into The Mary Sue. She’s a talented gal, and I’m thrilled Quirk is publishing her. And we get to do a signing together!
The Quirk booth is at #2236.
CORY DOCTOROW Q&A: In October of 2012, I was thrilled to help bring Cory Doctorow to Indy Hall for a talk about his YA novel Pirate Cinema. It was an awesome event that I still talk about. And now, two years later, I’m hosting his Q&A at New York Comic Con.
From 1:00pm to 1:45pm, you can attend the Spotlight on Cory Doctorow in Room 1A10. I’ll be moderating the Q&A, and I’m just absolutely thrilled and honored. We’ll likely talk a lot about his latest graphic novel, In Real Life, which you might have seen me ramble about over on BookRiot in the Best of August 2014 post. You should seriously check it out.
And that’s my Saturday morning. I’ll likely be found sleeping in the Quirk booth right after the Q&A.
I’ll also be there the whole convention, Thursday through Sunday, doing my thing and talking to people at the Quirk booth. Come by to meet plenty of other awesome Quirk authors, including Ransom Riggs, on Friday.
