Semi-Final Program Grid for John G. Hemry
This is the Semi-Final program schedule. John G. Hemry 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 4:00 pm: God Emperor of Capclave - The Politics and Religion Panel (Ends at: 4:55 pm)|

Verboten at the dinner table, but not here. How do authors' political perspectives and religion influence their writing? And what happens when an author's politics/religion starts influencing the real world (cue Ayn Rand)
|Friday 5:00 pm: Sequels and Prequels (Ends at: 5:55 pm)|
Panelists: Tom Doyle (M), John G. Hemry, Marianne Mancusi, Diana Peterfreund
How hard can it be? So you want to do Part 2...or 3...or 4...and with the first book done, it's just a matter of moving forward. Right? You have the universe built, your characters developed, and your cultures cultured. So, what's holding you up? As we have seen in both sequels and prequels, sometimes the formula you have worked so hard to succeed the first go-round can miss a step on the second. What are the challenges in a series? Are prequels really needed? And when do you decide to "shake things up" and set your sequel with a new set of characters? Listen to the pros on how they work through the challenges in the universes they create.
|Saturday 10:00 am: I've Got a Secret (Ends at: 10:55 am)|
Panelists: John G. Hemry, Diana Peterfreund, Patrick Scaffido, Brian Shaw (M)
How do authors write spies, liars, unreliable narrators, and secret-keepers? How do they keep characters honest with what they know and share? What are the tricks to avoid telegraphing the truth? Also what are some of the common codes and ciphers used.
