Friday Flycon schedule

Flycon 2009 is officially on! This international, round-the-clock online convention began at midnight tomorrow Sydney, Australia time. (Hmm, that's weird--it "began tomorrow"?)

Here's the full schedule, complete with links to each panel "room."

NOTE: Anyone can participate--you don't need a login or a LiveJournal username or a secret handshake. Just reply to a response to comment on it, or start a new thread with a new question.***

I have a few items today (copied from yesterday's post, but now with new, linky goodness):

Friday noon: When is Young Adult not really for Young Adults? Panel: sex and violence are standards now, what makes a young adult novel for kids? And what makes one really for adults? With Jana Oliver, Tessa Gratton, Jackson Pearce, and David Macinnis Gill. **And special guest: my phenom agent Ginger Clark of Curtis Brown, Ltd., an expert in YA publishing, will stop by to discuss the topic**

Friday 3pm: Author chat. Just me. And you know, I'll probably give away a prize, because I like to bribe people into pretending to be my friends.

Friday 11pm: Banter: How much fun do you get out of it? Panel: who writes the best banter; favourite bits; when is the wiseass narrator a draw, or a drawback? With Harry J Connolly, JC Runolfson, and Lisa Mantchev.

Hope to see you there!
