Last year was my first at Denver Comic Con as an attendee, this year I’ll be there as a panelist, moderator and to mark the official release of The Writer’s Conquest: Establish a Brand.
ALL WEEKEND you’ll be able to find me in Author’s Alley. I won’t be far from the Umbrella Corps or Xfinity areas. See the Exhibitor Map to find booth AA14, where I’ll be anytime I’m not on a panel.
FRIDAY PANELS: What’s the Fascination with the Living Dead? Friday from 12:15 – 1:05 p.m. in room 403 & 404. I’m joining an awesome group of authors including Catherine Winters, Jason Evans, Peter Meredith and Stant Litore. We’ll try to understand what makes the undead so fascinating in pop culture and where our fears originated.
Overcoming Your Creative Fears in Writing. Friday from 6-6:50 p.m. in room 506 & 507. I’ll be joined by Betsy Dornbusch, David John Butler, Anne Stamper and Brianna Shrum to discuss why we all have fears as writers, what we do to overcome them. We’ll open it up for questions to help aspiring writers find out everything they need to know. There’ll even be a giveaway for a hard copy of The Writer’s Conquest:Establish a Brand to one lucky attendee.
SATURDAY PANEL: Godzilla, Gamera & Other Kaiju Monsters. Saturday, June 18th from 12:15-1:05 in room 403 & 404. Somewhere in my parents’ basement is a VHS tape of me freaking out about getting “King Kong vs. Godzilla” on tape as a kid. My reaction was almost as intense when they announced that the two were facing off again. We’ve got Gamera, Godzilla, Pacific Rim, King Kong, Ghidorah, Rodan and Mothra all returning to the screen. Join me with moderator Catherine Winters and panelists M.H. Boroson, Aaron Michael Ritchey, and Godzilla expert David McRobie as we talk about everything Kaiju and cinematic monsters. Who should replace Gareth Edwards? Will Pacific Rim 2 ever see the light of day? We’ll ask those questions and more.
SUNDAY PANEL: Disney Princesses – The Good, The Bad, and The Pretty. Sunday, June 19th from 1-1:50 in room 605. I’ll be moderating this panel dissecting the pros and cons of these characters. Are they good role models? What life lessons do the Disney Princess movies teach? What qualities do we want our children to emulate and which do we not? Join me along with other massive Disney fans to see where we’ve been and where we want to see Disney princesses head in the future.
