The Con is On!

So neither of us are blessed to be at SDCC this year, but we are attending ArmadilloCon, a local Lit and Fantasy convention with a heavy dose of SciFi and an increasing Horror presence. It's one of TX's longest running conventions and we can't wait.

Why are convention halls so creepy when they're empty?

We were totally honored to be invited to speak on a number of their panels and their schedule just went LIVE! Our panels and times are below, but if you want to see the full schedule you can go to their website HERE (worth it to go see who's going to be on the panels with us). If you are in the Austin area, join us! Their at-the-door rates are from $30-$40 per day or $55 for the full weekend.

Dates: July 29-31 2016, Omni Southpark Hotel, Austin, Texas
