Tim Byrd (timbyrd) | 48 comments Hi, folks.

Here's the press release about a couple of appearances I'll be making this
weekend, if any of you are interested. And I haven't forgotten the ebook offer, just haven't had time to get to it just yet...busy month.

Doc Wilde Author Tim Byrd Appearing At DragonCon and Decatur Book Festival

For those in (or coming to) Atlanta,Tim Byrd, the author of the pulp adventure
novel Doc Wilde and The Frogs of Doom, will be making appearances at two big
Atlanta-area events on Labor Day weekend (Sep. 4-7).

He will be hopping back and forth between DragonCon in downtown Atlanta and the
Decatur Book Festival in (you guessed it) Decatur all weekend.

At DragonCon, he'll be on these panels:

Writing for the YA and Children's Market
Time: Sun 11:30 am Location: Manila / Singapore / Hong Kong – Hyatt (Length:
Description: How to write for an audience that's half your age–or less.
Tapping into the minds of today's young people–what DO they want to read?

The Future of Fantastic Fiction
Time: Mon 04:00 pm Location: Manila / Singapore / Hong Kong – Hyatt (Length:
Description: What lies ahead for the S/F, Fantasy and Horror genres? Can we
forecast trends or should we just jump on the bandwagon?

At the Decatur Book Festival, he'll be appearing along with author David Lubar
at 4:30 pm Saturday. Signed copies of his book will also be available the whole
weekend at the Little Shop of Stories bookstore on Decatur Square.

He'll also be wandering both events with no real planning all weekend.

Books will be available at the Decatur Book Festival for signing after his
presentation, and he's going to try to have some on hand for random buyers at
DragonCon. He hopes to see as many current and potential Doc Wilde fans at both
events as he can.

Have fun, Tim. Janny Wurts mentioned that she'd be there, too. Don't get too worn down & I hope you sell a bunch!

I feel really Really REALLY bad that I've lived here in the Atlanta vicinity all my 54 years and have never attended either event. Next year for sure...
