Dragon Con 2019 – Press Release and Big Guests

Well, it’s just over a month until Dragon Con. What does that mean? First, it means that I need to start drinking Emergen-C right freaking now. It also means that there are some status reports, updates, and press releases I need to get out into the world. Guests are still being added, and track schedules are far from finalized (drink if you even thought about asking when the app would be updated). There are still lots of exciting things that we do know so far. I’m gonna clear out a few updates and press releases before getting into the guests I really want to see this year.

It seems like just yesterday I was taking “calming” shots to settle my nerves before my first interview. My nerves still get a little shaky even after all this time. So if you go to an early or mid-day panel where I’m speaking give me a big thumbs up for not dropping an f-bomb in front of your kid.

Sometimes the head of the site you write for changes the entire thing immediately after Dragon Con. These is/are one of those times. So if you read this on the old site I won’t be offended if you don’t read it again. Continue reading “Dragon Con 2018 – The Dragon Awards”
