The Tarot Cafe Novel release news & panel announcement for World Fantasy

Mark your calendars! According to Jenna, THE TAROT CAFE NOVEL: VOL 1 will release on January 13, 2009. I've been told some stores may have the book on the shelves before then, just because of how distribution works, but I can't begin to tell you where and which stores that may be. Also, Amazon.ca is saying January 20th not the 13th.

The book became available through Previews catalogue in September. My request is that you please order the book through your local comic book store. If you must, go to Borders, Amazon, B&N, or Chapters—but please try to support the independents first.

Second—I'm super excited to announce that I will be on a panel at the World Fantasy Conference in Calgary, AB next weekend.

Saturday, Nov 1 at 8:00 Pm Tie-Ins:
"How do you make good fiction out of a strictly limited process
with a plethora of rules? Be it film to book or console to page,
how much of the story can be your own invention and how
much does the universe bible rule your prose?"

Panelists: Patrick Weekes, Robert Shearman, Mark
Morris
, Chandra Rooney, Doselle Young (m)

I realize this is up against the LOTR tribute, but Tolkien will never know you weren't there. ;)

You could "make" her? Maybe you could ask nicely.
