April begins next week, and for me, that marks the beginning of the convention season, starting with RavenCon. On April 5th I’ll be heading down to Williamsburg for another weekends of meeting with fans of all kinds of media, talking about writing and fandom, and, with luck, getting a few people to give my books a try. So, if you’re going to be in Williamsburg, VA for the first weekend of April, drop in and see me. And to help you do that, here’s a list of where you can find me at the con:


10:00 PM

Alt-History with a Fantastical Flair

Room 8 – 50 minutes

Alternate history often has a military basis and a near-future, SF flavor… but it doesn’t have to be that way. Our panel considers alt-history that leans to the fantastic.

Panelists: Doc Coleman (M), Jean Marie Ward, Cass Morris, John C. Wright

11:25 PM


Room 5 – 25 minutes

Come listen as Doc Coleman reads from one of his latest works.

Panelists: Doc Coleman



Steampunk 101

Room F – 50 minutes

Steampunk crosses the worlds of literature, costuming, crafting, movies, and more. But what is steampunk? Where did it start and why is it called that? A look at the history of the genre and its rising popularity over the past decade.

Panelists: Gail Z. Martin, Doc Coleman (M), Margaret S. McGraw, Sandra Baldari

3:00 PM

Intro to New Media

Room E – 50 minutes

All the cool kids are doing it… and more importantly, even more of the not-so-cool kids are doing it. So what do you need to know to get started? Go live or record and syndicate only? What kind of mics? What should you know before getting started? In your basement or a studio somewhere?

Panelists: Rich Sigfrit (M), Otto Linke, Jon “the Vicar” Stallard, Doc Coleman, Flynnstress

5:00 PM


Dealer’s Room – 60 minutes

Come meet the authors and pick up a signed book. Talk to your old favorites, or make a new one!

Panelists: Doc Coleman, Declan Finn

10:00 PM

So you want to be a voice actor

Room 2 – 50 minutes

Do you find yourself doing a number of different character voices? Do you find yourself falling into these same characters and wanting to develop them? Do you like to tackle a challenge of something new that could lead to maybe a new career or just a hobby? Come out and find out what it takes to be a voice actor.

Panelists: E.L. Fortner (M), Doc Coleman


10:00 AM

The 13th Doctor

Room E – 50 minutes

Join our panelists as they discuss the newest Doctor!

Panelists: J.R. Winsley, Old Dominion Daleks, Flynnstress, Doc Coleman, Ly Cao (M)

Of course, no schedule is set in stone. Be sure to check your schedule when you get to the con for any last minute changes.
