We have Jim’s schedule for DragonCon, and it’s intense! Readers will have abundant opportunities to hear Jim speak and get their books signed, and even to attend the premiere of the Dresden Files fan film Red Sun!

Note: We highly recommend showing up EARLY to signings to avoid disappointment. Previous DragonCon signing lines have been capped before the signing even began! In order to accommodate as many fans as possible, Jim can sign only TWO ITEMS per person per trip through the line.

Also, contrary to what the official schedule says, Jim will NOT be participating in the “First Contact Improv” or “Into the Dark” events Friday and Saturday nights. His schedule was published on the app before anyone consulted him on it. Come on, Dragon Con! Give the guy a little time to recharge! 😀

Calendar Event Discussion / CANCELED -- Jim at Authors' Combat Academy
« on: August 25, 2016, 09:27:38 PM »
This event has been canceled by the convention organizers.

Jim will be a guest at Authors Combat Academy 2017!

Friday, March 31st, through Sunday, April 2nd, 2017
The Inn At Opryland
2401 Music Valley Drive
Nashville, TN 37214

Author Christine Haggerty summarizes: “What is the Authors Combat Academy? It is THE authority on writing and fighting. This is not a conference for authors made up of panels with other authors. This is where you learn the nitty gritty facts from real crime scene investigators, cops, military professionals, and…(drum roll, please)…rental ninjas. Yes, I said ‘rental ninjas.’ These black belt and fighting professionals are available to fight through your scene or concept and give you a realistic sequence of action and all the words to write it.”
