Just a few more days until the World Horror Convention opens in New Orleans! I cannot wait to go back. I haven’t been to New Orleans since Halloween 1999.
Here is my schedule for WHC2013. I haven’t penciled in the cemetery tours yet, but I’d like to get out to St. Roch’s and Greenwood, at least. You may be able to find me in the Dealers’ Room at the Black Bed Sheet table. We have some good news to announce.
Drinks with the contributors to the Haunted Mansion Project: Year Two in the Carousel Bar
I’m so looking forward to catching up with my HMP homegirls and seeing the book in person!
I’m attending the Marketing Yourself panel in the morning, but then I’m free all afternoon. Anyone want to catch an early dinner?

The Art of the Collection panel – Lisa Morton (moderating), Mort Castle, Derek Clendening, Stephen Dedman, and me
We’ll explore the purpose of single-author collections and how one can do them well.
Then, barring pitch sessions, I’m free until the Stoker Banquet.
St. Roch’s Cemetery is open from 9-12.
Greenwood is open from 8:30-4:30.
It’s supposed to hit 90, so I think it’s going to be a good day for an early start.
