    Enjoyed all three of those panels, Saturday. Very informative. Wasn’t able to stay for Sunday due to racing bad, possibly snowing, road conditions on my way back to Kentucky. How does one get invited to be on a panel? This is my third Chattacon. I have six published novels, and I plan to return to next year’s as well. Thanks!

      When I consider going to a convention, I look up the literary track directors, introduce myself, and tell them I would love to be part of the literary track. Once you start going to a lot of conventions, they start to know you and it becomes easier…

        Thanks. I went to the 2nd Con-gregate last year in N.C. It was good, but not quite what I hoped for. Dragoncon is the one I’d love to see, but with my teaching schedule, it falls at the awkward time of the year. What are some of the better ones you’ve attended?


      • M. B. Weston says:

        DragonCon is the biggest one I have attended. ConNooga is good, and so is the Alabama Phoenix Festival. Robbie Hilliard is the moderator for the lit track in those and he is a great moderator. I also enjoy ContraFlow in New Orleans.


      • LeonardHilleyII says:

        I imagine New Orleans is a great one. It would be nice to spend a month there writing. We ventured to Salem, Mass. a couple years ago. Loved it. So much history and inspiration.


      • M. B. Weston says:

        New Orleans is a great place. I really enjoy it when I’m there. The history, the food… There is something about it that inspires stories.
