Here Comes ChiCon!

I just landed a few hours ago from Denver, where we celebrated the 10th anniversary of Nelson Literary Agency, and I’m already getting jazzed for Chicago! (see what I did there?)

For anyone heading to the conference, here’s how to avoid me:

Don’t go to The Emerald Loop at 8:00 on Thursday. We’ll be doing our first-ever Chicago Meet-Up. It’s going to be an absolute blast, so steer clear.

The rest of my schedule is after the break. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

Moderator in bold. The Kaffeeklatsche is like a coffee hangout.

I am SO PUMPED about going to ChiCon! My wife, Kathleen, is an amazing person and I am just “the lucky bastard who married her”! Thanks for the early BDay present, Sweetheart! You ROCK!

Looking forward to meeting Hugh, LKW and Hubby Mike, and all the HH fans at the Emerald Loop! :D

We will pass like ships in the night. I’ll be in Chicago, but leaving for Yellowstone early A.M. Saturday.
I’ll wave as we leave and raise my coffee cup in a toast.
