A QUICK ANNOUNCEMENT

so, remember how i said june was going to be an exciting month?

well, here is the first piece of fun news:

i'm going to be on a YA panel at the San Diego Comic Con International :D :D

me, Kiersten White, Amanda Hocking, Stephanie Perkins, Andrea Cremer & Laini Taylor will be on the panel, and the super-awesome Nathan Bransford will be moderating. the official schedule, however, is not up yet, so we don't have clearance to talk about specific times. but we will be there. July 21-24 :D

SOOOOO

i am just saying maybe you should come you should definitely come

ALSO COSTUMES! apparently people wear costumes. i have no clue. i've never been to Comic Con before. so i'm kind of excited about this. maybe i'll wear a cape. maybe i'll convince jodi to wear a cape.

idk idk the possibilities are endless.

BUT I HOPE YOU CAN COME! that would be excellent.

are any of you going this year?

i am the picture of excitement:

Cool! I think you need more than a cape to constitute a costume. Though I can't say I'm an expert on the subject. Since 90 percent of the attendees will be in some kind of Star Trek or Lord of the Rings garb, any other choice will make you stand out. Sounds like fun. Have a great time.

Rebecca Kiel said...

Very exciting! Have fun. Be sure to tell us how it went.

Sarah Pearson said...

My daughters have been begging me to go to Comic Con. As we live in England, it has to be no, but that sounds like an awesome line-up!

Krispy said...

That's so cool! I don't live that far from San Diego, but I've still never been to Comic Con. One day! Excited for you though!

Michael Di Gesu said...

How exciting! I've always wanted to go to a Comic Con convention. I wish I could make it this year....

Have a great time!

Marsha Sigman said...

I can't. But now I'm really upset because all of you will be there and I won't.

My face is not a happy Pikachu face right now.

But I am happy for you! You're going to have a great time.

Katie said...

I want to be there SOOOOOO bad. But I live in MI and have no moneyz for teh travels.... You should come to penguicon or something next year!!! Or just come to MI. Like Borders. Or something.

:)

Laura Marcella said...

Wow, what a panel! I love Laini Taylor's books. You're so lucky! Have fun and be sure to dress up in something awesome!

Cacy said...

Congrats! Have oodles fun.

...tickets are probably all sold out by now, though. One year I'll get to go though (sniff, sniff).

Keriann Greaney Martin said...

I'm going, I'm going, WOOHOO!! I really hope it's a Saturday panel. If not maybe you can just hang around on the ground floor somewhere on Saturday so I can say hi?? :D :D

Dorothy Dreyer said...

OMG I soooo wish I could go. That's like a DREAM panel. Wow, amazing!

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

Yay!!! So exciting.
I wish I was going, but sadly, no.
I say you be someone ubercool like Rainbow Brite, She-ra, or Storm. :)

I think you will have a wonderful time. Both my sons love it. Christopher's worked it three times. One year her spent three days having to walk around with a wide screen TV strapped to his shoulders. Their dad, Barry Corbin, was on a panel last year for Ben 10
Comic Con is costumes and swag and previews of new things. Here are some extreem costumes form last year. http://movies.yahoo.com/photos/collections/gallery/2766/2010-comiccon--costumes#photo3 Believe me, you and Jodi don't have to go that far. Enjoy!!

Julie Musil said...

How exciting! Yes, a cape is a must :D

kathrynleighaz said...

OMG I want to come! I want to come! I want to come! I've been blog-stalking you and all but one of the other panelists for the past year... AND Nathan Bransford!

Also, I LOVE cons. I just got back from Phoenix ComiCon, and it was AMAZING! There are totally costumes.

If only I lived in CA.

Take me with you!

Ishta Mercurio said...

Oh, Neat-o! That's so exciting! Unfortunately, I live on the other end of the continent. But I will be there in spirit!

I don't think you need to dress up, since you'll be a panellist. But expect to see lots of elves and hobbits. And maybe Rainbow Brite.

Em-Musing said...

Would LOVE to come if I weren't going to be elsewhere. What will you wear?

Brittany said...

I don't think I'm going to come because I will be first blinded and then paralyzed by you guys' awesomesauce aura.

Leslie Rose said...

Congratulations - Comic Con is the dream. Got my "Con" tix for Sat. and Sun. I hope the panel falls on one of those days. Your panel sounds like a blast!

Creative A said...

Oh my, that sounds like an amazing panel! So jealous you get to meet Laini Taylor in person. *Le dramatic sigh* Hope you have a blast.

Writerly support from afar,
-Mandy
