Semi-Final Program Grid for Jason Jack Miller
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Jason Jack Miller 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 8:00 pm: Grim or Grin? (Ends at: 8:55 pm)|
Panelists: Carolyn Ives Gilman, Alma Katsu, Jason Jack Miller (M), Sherin Nicole, Michelle D. Sonnier
Why has entertainment become so dark, with even superhero movies going grim and gritty, Game of Thrones bringing new meaning to "disastrous wedding", and games becoming more violent? What does this say about society? Where's the comic relief?
|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 9:30 am: Reading: Jason Jack Miller (Ends at: 9:55 am)|
Panelists: Jason Jack Miller
|Saturday 10:00 am: When the Dark (Fiction) Comes Rising -- Where Horror and Fantasy Collide (Ends at: 10:55 am)|
Panelists: Pamela K. Kinney, Dina Leacock, Craig Alan Loewen, Jason Jack Miller, Darrell Schweitzer, Hildy Silverman (M)
What is Dark Fiction and how is it different from light horror? How wide is the scope? What stories are good examples? Is there room for expansion into unexplored areas?

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?
