From how to set up the next book to steampunk to leather

I did my first panel this morning with writers Elizabeth Moon, James Knapp, Stephanie Burke, Gail Z. Martin, and agent Joshua Bilmes on series and how to end a book while setting it up for the next one. Had a lot of fun. Managed to generate a little heat when I expressed my annoyance with all things prequel. Not everyone agrees. I would much rather go forward with a series or a world than go back and delve into why things are they way they are. I haven’t really found that formula compelling in fiction, at least in the material I’ve read and seen. The second batch of Star Wars movies leap to mind. I never, ever wanted or needed to know Darth Vader was a little brat or a whiny teenager. He was the perfect two-dimensional villain the way he was presented. Less is more and all that.

After the panel, I wandered the dealers’ room and took a bunch of photos, but forgot the cord that connects to my laptop so I won’t be able to post until I get home. Some cool stuff though. Lots of steampunk attire here as well as leather works. Fair amount of lace items and pewter figurines as well. There’s a gaming component and even homemade movies. The world premiere of Ninjas versus Vampires debuted last night. Not sure what it was about though 🙂
