My JordanCon Schedule + Updates

Tomorrow my assistant Peter and I are off to JordanCon in Atlanta. Their full schedule is listed here. My panels are below. Please pay special attention to the details of the Magic draft on Friday night, if you want to participate.

There are also a couple of other updates. TOWERS OF MIDNIGHT has made it to the semifinals of Audible’s Tournament of Audiobooks, but it is currently behind in votes to MATTERHORN by Karl Marlantes. If you liked the TOWERS OF MIDNIGHT audiobook, consider giving it your vote. (Of course you can vote for MATTERHORN instead, if you think that was a better audiobook.)

The Stormlight Archive character name auction is still going on. The local newspaper did an article on it.

I haven’t linked this week’s Writing Excuses podcast episode yet. Recent episodes were recorded at LTUE when I was at ConDFW, so I haven’t been appearing, but this episode marks my return. Dan Wells, Howard Tayler, and I talk about urban fantasy.
