Last year, I had the pleasure of participating in a discussion panel with Dani and Eytan Kollin at San Diego’s Comic Con. It was my first public appearance as a newly-minted author, and the guys very generously offered me a few pointers. Dani is fantastic about sharing information on the business of writing, and has given me insider tips and marketing info I never would have figured out for myself. Us newbies are all grappling around in the dark, trying to figure out how to bend the book-beast to our will, or at least, make friends with it. Remember to pay it forward when your turn comes. When you’re the seasoned pro with one or two books under your belt, you’ll also have a wealth of experience to share with the writers coming up behind you.
Anyway, Dani invited me to be on a discussion panel at Neverendingpanel.com, in LA. It was plenty fun. I’ll post the panel when it’s up, in the meantime, snack on this: Dani and Eytan interview Kirsten Imani Kasai, writer of the critically acclaimed novel, Ice Song.
