Here's what my rock star authors have been up to recently.
Bob Mayer has been talking about catastrophes.
Why be concerned about catastrophes?
What is a catastrophe?
The final event of the dramatic action, especially of a tragedy
An event causing great and often sudden damage or suffering; a disaster Utter failure.
J.A. Konrath is talking about the author conference of the future.
If it ever does happen, this is how I'd picture it:
One giant room, similar to ComiCon, with a stage and microphones.
Authors sit at tables, which are set up everywhere. For table space at the 3 day conference, authors pay $25 a day.
Attendees get in for free.
