Rainbow Con 2015 Schedule

Rainbow Con will be really hectic. I'm sitting on nine panels (master *cough*cough* moderator of three) as well as participating in the Author Signing and Author Reading. 

Oh! I also volunteered to sit at the Queer Sci-Fi table at different times.

And, I have a table in the dealer's room. That's were I'll be when I'm not otherwise engaged. If you catch me at my table ask me what I have for special swag because I have stuff to give away (limited quantity). So don't be shy.

Oh! And I also give out hugs if you're a hugger. :)

This Rainbow Con is super special for me because my baby sister, Tessa, is coming with me. YAY!! This is her first conference and she's a bit nervous. *hugs*

For the full Rainbow Con schedule [click here]. There is a ton of stuff to participate in.
