Worldcon Chicago Thursday

All through the con, I attended various pannel discussions. Many times there were ten different things going on at one time, so much of what I wanted to see was just not available. Here are some of what I attended:

Self Promotion and Publicity -- How authors have promoted their books.

The books of Ben Bova -- the Guest of Honor.

Writers and Families -- how to make the trade-offs while supporting a writing career and supporting a family.

In the evening, there was a large Meet the Pro's party, where all the authors at the convention were available for autograph signing. I was on the list of authors, but the fun of the event was wandering around the several ballrooms, finding old faces and shaking hands.
