I love Dragon Con. Last year, in 2019, I had the chance to meet some amazing authors and readers. Although I am sad to not have a chance to hang out this year, being able to participate virutally has still been a blast. Yep, this year, I am happy to be a part of the 2020 Virtual Dragon Con.
What is Dragon Con?
Dragon Con is one of the largest multigenre conventions on the East Coast. It usually means five days of 80,000 visitors in Atlanta, who converge on the city to celebrate pop culture, media and that includes books and the authors who write them.
Tonight, Friday, September 4, 2020, I’ll be on the LIVE panel with some amazing authors, as well, as we discuss humor in urban fantasy.
