If you're in the greater SoCal area, I'd really encourage you to come out. It's a huuuuuge event on the UCLA campus with gobs of your favorite authors. More info to come, but mark your calendars!
Also: I'll have a bigger blog post about this on Monday...but this coming weekend I'll be appearing as a special guest of Emerald City Comicon! I'll be there both days! As will you, I'm sure -- as this is pretty much my favorite convention in the U.S! Make plans to come on out and receive your official Emerald City Comicon 2009 High Five. Limited Quantity of 48.
