Semi-Final Program Grid for Betsy A. Riley
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Betsy A. Riley 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.
|Friday 9:00 pm: J. K. Rowling Wrote an Adult Mystery (Ends at: 9:55 pm)|
Panelists: Catherine Asaro, Scott Edelman, Betsy A. Riley, Darrell Schweitzer (M), Jon Skovron
Why do authors switch genres or markets and how does it affect their career? Do they need a different pen name for each new genre? Is it better to focus on getting good at writing one genre or experiment? What are the reasons authors write outside the areas for which they are best known?
|Friday 10:00 pm: Nice Shoes … (Ends at: 10:55 pm)|
Panelists: Judi Fleming (M), Jason Jack Miller, Betsy A. Riley, Patrick Scaffido, Jean Marie Ward
Shoes, do they make the character? What are the tricks to subtly tell the reader about the character through clothes, furniture, job, and hobbies. Is this just a chic lit trait or a common tool?
|Saturday 6:00 pm: Blood in Southern Waters (Ends at: 6:55 pm)|
Panelists: Meriah Lysistrata Crawford, Andrew Fox (M), Sherin Nicole, Betsy A. Riley
Is it something in the water, but why are there so many vampires in the South? From Anne Rice to Charlaine Harris to L.J. Smith it seems all vampires that don't sparkle live in the South. Why?
|Sunday 12:00 pm: Self Publishing and You / DIY Publishing (Ends at: 12:55 pm)|
Panelists: Jennifer Barnes, Andrew Fox (M), Jason Jack Miller, Betsy A. Riley, Steven H. Wilson
Self publishing offers authors new opportunities, but also pitfalls. Is self publishing right for you? Should readers consider self-published books? Do genre and author experience matter?
