I’m doing a heck of a lot of conventions this year–next up is NYCC–New York City Comic Con! I’ve never been to this one, but I hear it’s an awful lot of fun. Please watch this space for updates!
Word to the wise: I’ve found at cons I update my location on Twitter a great deal, so I suggest following me @ChristieGolden if you don’t already, as there are likely to be a lot of informal opportunities to say hi and get books signed!
Here we go….
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7:
At 10:00-11: TITAN BOOKS BOOTH #2142: I’ll be doing a signing there for special editions of WARCRAFT: DUROTAN and WARCRAFT: THE OFFICIAL MOVIE NOVELIZATION. They will be hot off the presses, so make sure you get there in time to snag one! I’m told there will be a limited supply, but I’ll have a link up soon so you can order them if you miss out.
At 1:00-1:30: NYCC LIVE STAGE: I’ll be on a panel entitled “Assassin’s Creed: Expanding the Universe through Storytelling”. Here’s what the description has to say–plus I’m excited to say there will be a Big Reveal of a new project!
“At its core, Assassin’s Creed is synonymous with storytelling. Be it through books, movies, comics or a variety of other transmedia, the Assassin’s Creed universe weaves its way through exciting historical time periods, introduces vibrant characters and expands on themes originally introduced in the videogame franchise.
As Assassin’s Creed gears up for the release of the movie this year, and in preparation for a celebration of the franchise 10th Anniversary in 2017, key figures and creators involved in the shaping of the Assassin’s Creed universe will talk about their inspiration, and give a glimpse into where the franchise is headed in the future.
Join Aymar Azaizia (Assassin’s Creed Head of Content), Christie Golden (New York Times bestselling author and writer of the upcoming novel Assassin’s Creed Heresy), Matthew J. Kirby (award-winning author, writer of the new Assassin’s Creed Young Adult series, Last Descendants), and Casper Wijngaard (artist of Last Descendants Locus, an Assassin’s Creed comic series by Titan Comics).”
At 2-2:30: Autogaph Table #20: I’ll be joining Matthew J. Kirby for a signing–you can get an early copy of “Assassin’s Creed: Heresy” but get there EARLY there are only 50 copies! From the program:
“Join New York Times Bestselling author Christie Golden for a signing of her upcoming new novel Assassin’s Creed Heresy on Friday October 8th at 2pm. In “Assassin’s Creed Heresy”, Christie Golden skillfully blends the present day and the 15th century to present a taut thriller about a modern Templar and Joan of Arc. Award-winning author Matthew J. Kirby will also be there to sign free chapter samples from the upcoming book 2 of Last Descendants, an action-adventure historical fiction saga featuring a group of teens caught up in the centuries-old Assassin-Templar feud.”
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8
At 2-4:00: DEL REY STAR WARS BOOTH # 2108, part of the larger Del Rey and Penguin Random House booth. I’ll be there for an informal signing (in other words, it’s not listed) of anything people want to put in front of me. I hear rumors there might even be some Dark Disciple posters to give away, but don’t quote me on that. 😉 Other potential times to spot me are Friday from 4-5 or 6-7.
And if you can’t make any of these specific signings, I am likely to pop up at any of the below:
SIMON & SCHUSTER BOOTH, #2128
WORDFIRE PRESS BOOTH, # 1232
