Preliminary Draft Program Grid for Pamela K. Kinney
This is the Preliminary Draft program schedule. Pamela K. Kinney 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.

So many short stories start out well but end abruptly or just trail off, leaving the reader to wonder, what's the point. Why does this happen and how can writers avoid this fate? How do you determine your endings? Is a twist ending a cheat?

A significant number of science fiction and fantasy books are reviewed in publications such as Romance Times and nominated for awards in the romance genre. Were the genre line distinctions always artificial? What are romance readers' expectations with respect to the plot and its resolution? HEA vs. the tragic romance. Is romance handled better or worse in YA SF/F? Are certain types of romance plots (such as first love) more likely to show up in YA?
|Sunday 4:00 pm: The Darker Side of Fae (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Bethesda|
Panelists: Holly Black, Pamela K. Kinney, Janine Spendlove, Jean Marie Ward (M)
Not everyone can be Tinkerbell (who wasn't all sweetness and light), sometimes the world is a little less clean and pure. Both the Seelie and Unseelie Courts are best avoided if at all possible.
