The fire marshal said “No More!” and shut the door

Yep, we closed them down last night at the library, with a full house at the science fiction and fantasy panel, and looking at the lineup, it was no surprise. Going from left to right in the picture below, we had Steve White (Sunset of the Gods) Hugh Howey (Wool) Kim Harrison (Hollows/urban fantasy) and Katherine Kurtz. (Deryni series)

It was an exceptional panel in that we had authors who started in this industry in three different decades all having different experiences in how we broke into print. Hugh’s comments were especially pertinent to the new writer breaking into print using non-traditional means. (I really need to talk to my agent now . . .) 😉

VFB1The library where we spoke is beautiful, and the festival extremely well run. If you have the opportunity to take part in it, do so. The shopping alone is worth coming for. (grin)

I’ll be at a panel today at 2:00, signing after at 3:00 with Pamela Palmer, Me, Jeaniene Frost, and Vicki Pettersson. More info at event’s page. http://www.kimharrison.net/Events.html
