DemiCon will be celebrating its Silver Anniversary May 2nd – 4th, 2014 in Des Moines, IA. I’m really excited to return to this awesome con. Great people, well organized, amazing room parties – it’s a lot of fun. Even better, this year I get to participate in panels!
Friday from 6pm-7pm in the Nebraska room I’ll be hosting Superheroes On Parade: Movies, Television, straight to DVD, and soon Netflix. Marvel and DC are battling it out on the big and little screens. Come discuss what works, what doesn’t, what’s coming…and what’s up with Flash’s new costume?
Saturday from 6pm-7pm come to the Nebraska room and discuss Disney’s Star Wars: Jedi or Jar Jar? Disney has already made changes regarding the extended universe, and plans on releasing Star Wars movies every year! Does Disney wield enough Force to become a Jedi? Join us on the dark side as we discuss rumors, official announcements, and our new hope for the future.
Also on Saturday I’ll be joining Dennis Green to share how we go about Finding Time to Write from 7pm-8pm in the Missouri room.
As always, I have a few things planned for this con! Visit us in the dealer room and you will be able to:
- Meet Cristi – gorgeous Angst spokesmodel, alpha reader, and amazing person
- Pose with the brand new, full size replica fantasy sword Chryslaenor, the giant sword from Angst
