What I’m doing at Windycon

I’ll be at Windycon 43 this weekend, November 11 to 13, in Lombard, Illinois. Here are the panels I’m on:

International SF&F - Friday 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. in room Lilac B
What are some of the current trends in SF outside of the English-speaking areas? Who are the exciting new authors in the rest of the world? And where do you look to find translations of their works?

Writing Unpleasant Characters - Friday 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. in room Lilac B
Even the worst villains need realistic motivation. How do you write a believable character that nobody likes?

Guard! Turn! Parry! Dodge! Spin! Thrust! - Saturday, 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. in Junior Ballroom A
What do you need to know if you want to write believable fight scenes?

Get Funded! - Saturday 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. in room Lilac D
Kickstarter, GoFundMe, and Patreon are just some of the ways to get funding for your creative project. Learn the pros and cons of crowdfunding.
