My Ad Astra 2014 Schedule

Beverly Bambury/ April 4, 2014/ Conventions/ 2 comments

I only have a few panels this year at Ad Astra (which is in a new hotel this year–the former Polaris hotel), though I have many that I’d like to attend, and several launches and readings that are of interest. Clients Bundoran Press and the EDGE gang (Suzanne Church and Michael Martineck) are both having launch parties at the same time, so that allows for some sitcom-like fun of back-and-forth to parties! (Well. Maybe a bit.) I’ll also be going to the Guest of Honour Brunch, and hopefully will sit with Patricia Briggs.

It’s funny–I’d told someone recently that my Canadian business wasn’t that robust, but given the number of clients I’ll see this weekend, I’ve realized it’s healthier than I thought. That pleases me. 🙂

Anyhow, I am bringing coupons for my April 13th Self-Planning for Self-Promotion Web Workshop, so if you’re around ask me for a flyer. If I am out of flyers, I’ll still give you the code, because I am a very nice person. ^_^

With no further delay, here’s my official schedule. If I don’t see you here, I’ll see you around, I am sure. Looking forward to it!

  1. Enjoy the con!

    There are a couple of local cons around here (Chicago), but I haven't gone to any of them, yet. WordCon was here two years ago, that was a lot of fun. It would be neat to go to a WorldCon again, but since I'm not going to London, it would have to be in 2015 – we'll see!
