Often the best conversations at a convention are the ones that carry over after a panel. Here we have provided a space for authors, editors, agents, and our partners to share their expertise in intimate meetings. These can either be a one-on-one about an area of expertise such as hypnotism, sailing, or contract law. Or it could be an offer to talk shop such as brainstorming sticky plot points, world-building dilemmas, or how to set up book tours.

Available topics this hour are:
  • How Publishing Works
  • Social Services and Social Science
  • Brazil
  • Fight Scenes
  • Querying Agents and What to Expect
  • The Debut Author Experience
