Semi-Final Program Grid for David Louis Edelman
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. David Louis Edelman may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.

|Sunday 9:00 am: The End is Nigh (Ends at: 9:55 am)|
Panelists: John Ashmead, David Louis Edelman, James Morrow
After the end of the world as we know it, do you feel fine? Whatís next after the end of all things? Post-apocalyptical fiction has become popular (especially in YAs). Why? What do authors and readers like about this setting? What is worth reading?
|Sunday 10:00 am: My Buddy, My Beta (Ends at: 10:55 am)|
Panelists: Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, David Louis Edelman, James Morrow, Aly Parsons (M), Jim Stratton
I want your honest opinion about how you really love my book. Can your friends and family function as your beta readers to advise you on your story/novel and help you improve it? Can they give your manuscript a reality check before sending it to the editor? Who do authors choose as their reader and what kind of feedback do they get and give? Is it hard to tell a friend their story isnít quite right?
|Sunday 2:00 pm: Too Detailed (Ends at: 2:55 pm)|
Panelists: David Louis Edelman, Jennifer Pelland
How accurate do you need to be? When to infodump and when to gloss over it. Does a less clear description prevent a story from becoming dated?
