Semi-Final Program Grid for Philippa Ballantine
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. Philippa Ballantine 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 6:00 pm: Buy My Book (Ends at: 6:55 pm)|

Self promotion and you. Nervous about talking about your books and stories? There are some things you should do and avoid when talking about your writing.
|Friday 7:00 pm: Author's Table Friday 7 (Ends at: 7:55 pm)|

|Friday 8:00 pm: Producing Your Own Anthology: From Concept to Editing to Print (Ends at: 8:55 pm)|
Panelists: Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Philippa Ballantine, Eric Choi, Gardner Dozois, Ron Garner (M), Jim Stratton
This panel talks a bit about the business of putting together an anthology of original fiction or even collected essays. Where do you go from the idea? What options are available? Print? eBook? Audio? How do you work with others, especially when it comes to the editorial process? Hear from the panelists tips and tricks on getting along with others and the tools needed to put together a terrific anthology, and the pros and cons on working with friends.
|Saturday 10:00 am: Moving Beyond the Small Press (Ends at: 10:55 am)|
Panelists: Philippa Ballantine (M), Ron Garner, Lawrence M. Schoen, Michael A. Ventrella
A look at how small presses in the age of the eReaders - where anyone can be a publisher - have their limits, and what to do when you've hit them. There is also the additional pressure of performing on a higher level. Listen to panelists describe what to do when you have plateaued with your own independent publisher, and what lies ahead if or when you step up to corporate publishers.
|Saturday 1:00 pm: Reading: Tee Morris and Philippa Ballantine (Ends at: 1:55 pm)|
Panelists: Philippa Ballantine, Tee Morris
|Saturday 5:00 pm: White Out (Ends at: 5:55 pm)|
Panelists: Day Al-Mohamed, Philippa Ballantine, Sherin Nicole (M), Diana Peterfreund, Jon Skovron
LeGuin complained that many Earthsea covers whitewashed the characters (as did the SciFi movie). The worlds of many fantasy/SF novels seem to be overwhelmingly white and European. Why do writers (and cover artists) do this? How can we bring diversity into our genres? Is it getting better? Are non-white authors and hero(ines) still rarities?
|Saturday 7:30 pm: Mass Signing (Ends at: 8:25 pm)|
