Writer Jam at Kryton Comics

This Saturday, June 12th, I’ll be at Krypton Comics (Westwood Shopping Center, 120th & Center), participating in a Writer Jam.  This will be the first in a series of panel discussions on the ins and outs writing and publishing.  I’ll be joined by local authors Travis Heermann, Chloe Neill, Marcus Pelegrimas, and Kylie Kinley.

The fun starts at noon, and is slated to run until 2:00 or so.

Stop by, if yer of a mind.  Hope to see you there!
