[3:58] E-mails and schedule changes keep happening sometimes we are getting emails about schedule change after the event already happen if it,
oops what,
i only that the army did stuff like that how many times will happen there a dragon time is what happened is this a bot when i try to remain did anything it sometimes especially at show,
it's going so fast you are finding out about the start what's gonna happen and then all the sudden like two days later you look at your email.
Who trying to tell me about that was nice family and a penny from where u r your email make me not be coming through yo honestly a blur i feel like i did nothing i get everything all in one,
yeah what can i do to try director.
So u i wanted to know so your first but i play a track and send you this year so immature second nearest your first year went well.

[5:02] My first year what is the georgia tech great feedback on the app and naam.
I think people take me seriously when i said i will eventually sleep and what ever kind where he told me will dribble out under my pillow i'm not come back in,
smh so we got some very good constructive feedback last year and.
I did anyways a blast i wouldn't trade for anything in the world i have had an amazing crew behind me and i have no,
person personality switch shifts this year and even great but maybe this year i don't know we'll see time will tell but i'm really excited we've been brainstorming,
they're all jazz and energized away started plotting panel right after the dead dog last year.

[5:49] No i'm looking
yeah that's why it was great i've never never gonna stop the momentum because we are a passionate group and i love the collaboration we have our track is it fabulous
it is wonderful but it's like unless you're gonna write this down and remember that don't tell me a dead zone upper marlboro on facebook that would a,
add new list for just the volunteers and it was all through that's because be knew that i was,
i was falling asleep in my chase gangnam style is very very kind to me on that one and we'd we had a great support from the authors,
we are people who donated are working are we rebooted the entire track and one friend you feel add,
been publishing donated posters to us last year they sent me some new ones for this year is michael j allan gave me artwork people gave us
stop books to give out as prizes so i was just really warm and welcoming i felt very loved and welcomed into fantasy literature is community again,
hmm i was wonderful and we had a great facebook presence going through out the year and can in community there on facebook.

[7:05] Very cool very awesome know something we've already talked to high fantasy and we've already talked to file it.
Seven out what is fantasy lit.
End this now because now he really has three adult literature panels but tracks which is awesome.

[7:25] I like to say that my brothers tell me that i sound like a mega maniac when i say everything because i would really but it really is everything good with you some fantasy with magic then there's some fantasy that,
how does a mediocre amount to large amount a lot of high fantasy and um,
properties as well as the urban fantasy tracks properties are ones that have a lot of media presence a lot of books would really our focus is.
Series that are only a buck okay no.
Yes we really get many of those author actors on our panels but we have a blast and it's a really big.

[8:11] Broad spectrum and we had lot of fun with that like we always do we get a sub genre panel last year and we're doing one this year very creatively named all the subs because i think its funny how to forget that shang.
We are doing one this year and.
What make something dark fantasy vs horror as well as where doing one all about food this year in the representation of literature in that was going to be,
fun and also the authors we have on i think jodi lynn nine on it and i don't know quincy um quincy allen on as well as reading it and those three can you talk.
Show and talk about food so it can clear is good and put it in the road and the umm,
i feel that maybe it would be really cool if they are some recipes to put on facebook for those who are our fans you can't make it to the event so that would be awesome,
i really wanted i'm trying to build a bot.

[9:18] Turn on line coz dragon con it's a display driving concert community and it's still waiting sixty days for some people yes and that's awesome because i know how much people love doing it and began being about jeff.
I wanna date with a guy like the meaning is dragon con a lifestyle that i want to thank my lovely play at my baby and i help you.

[9:44] Yeah it is absolutely great i love it because many many more are bad for you.
Hobby how can log in and loves outside of your family there that can really hurt you,
so this is good morning in my opinion that's what you're reading you for your
watching hopefully good tv or bad tv and enjoying it and your hubby want to see it so this was what is that all people as honestly i don't know where i would have started at dragon con eighteen i don't know where,
i will be now i feel he is later.
If one for dragon con got it was a safe place for me to explore who i was and figure out what things i liked and didnt life in and learn to the first public speaking thing i ever did was at dragon con,
so i learned and grown as a person and taking some of those skills that i probably needed to develop.
And my monday normal life where kinda to driving can get me a safe place to learn those sites to,
what are my sweet experiment with that too because i think one of the things jon what we say of somebody's coming to dragon con and only one thing on your command ragtime for the wrong reason.

[11:07] That's exactly right words the weather coming driving drunk right use the app because first of all surely coming for one person and that person cancel that activity details of whatever
will you be there when i get you money back for the ticket we don't do that and can transfer your tickets are the membership membership membership membership members do,
membership membership i'm gonna have that tattooed on my hand dad and volunteers both the doors on my hand one
but that's what i think one of the greatest things that i love and what are the first dragon con i retained to what i actually said sat in on some of the literature,
things that were going on cuz i just don't know what i know i like to read what was awesome,
so i just sat there and i just started writing down books people were talking about like i did know any of them but i then got some things i like do my husband like you know things like that i still have yoga outlet now,
just send an email what you know what's good for um lol eleven year old who,
want to get into graphic novels and you know actually i don't but what are some good ones crown of was my favorite one that i read this year,
ok see that we can get the barnes and noble and its phenomenal.

[12:28] Who did the production quality in the blog is also just amazing round of feathers write it down.

[12:37] I join your call as soon as you sow so what kind of weird talking briefly beforehand um you have,
some topics for after dark if you will what were you what you cover his share what bowl last year for that is not well.
We did the s p last year in people really like that is a chance to look at,
classic fantasy we do focus on dancing but you know what somebody wants to bring up behind golden it was a great author when you write stuff it out there its permanently out there,
but society changes and moves forward and even sometimes
often the authors move forward and develop and change their viewpoint so particularly with classical literature
you read something and think oh my god that's so successful at the time it was probably fairly having guards for that time so it's a discussion on that and it was really great to twenty y scott moderate it last year and she won best compliments i ever had which was
that was a what are the most scenic panels that she never seen and she would the world be moderate again,
hello we actually video taped that one and had an ob,
we had our website which would drag and cons revamp so i wanna find a new home for it.

[14:00] But it was really a great discussion and then bringing that back we're,
not running back when besties and i am not moderate it cuz we found out last year i'm not doing good at moderate enough,
panels that are about that topic what is the dress okay.
Yeah i was a little bit risky but we are having blinking beast with simpson silver moderate again so and he is very excited about that um,
we had the fantasy dating game wit we never gonna dragon con in ordering had.

[14:34] Um it's gonna be a little bit audience participation as well as some ls for gonna have a.
I'm moderator up there and hopefully three author cosplay.
Announcing the role of a character from their series.
Add an audience member who will be selecting them for a date and then the question a chance to talk about be like this is not who they were,
add this is a serious problem and so we are hoping to have two rounds of that which should be a lot of fun,
and then we are bringing back if you can come too fancy or you know we don't sleep in fantasy literature it seems because after i close out the candles then start gaming center doing,
midnight gaming and charity color on saturday night and,
will probably end up doing it again on sunday but it's of artificial event for saturday.
At midnight or eleven thirty whenever the pain starts.

[15:33] Anime and all the proceeds from the drawing will go to church and so are her other the american heart association atlanta chapter which is our unofficial charity this year,
that was very right u gotta hey i can study on it and then uh we're also having the famous each other which we premier last year,
ask cocktail hour me bookfair me social,
and it's terrifying we had nine officers committed last year we have a team this year umm yeah its gonna be fun a couple of them actually i just kind of grew up together like a,
flagstaff publishing and just put it all over them at one table,
ummm and christianity publishing out one table because there are so many of them and that will get their offers a chance to kind of loading it out but i guess people a chance to meet authors can talk with them,
and i'm more low key setting last year july nine and larry never came through and talk to people um.
Chris was one of the dragon award finalist for last year is totally embarrassing to recognize that person.

[16:44] Yeah that's open book and then i realize what i saw but if i don't have a budget for getting them to her,
give the quickest route first did i lend up yet so what would a bot yeah i do i love mart,
relax you can meet your prayers and where we're doing on friday night so that is a chance for people to,
get me orders and go maybe i want to see this person on the panel but also dragon con is great for networking but its so hard it's really hard to network turn off because theres a chance to mix and mingle with each other and,
i mean each other to sell it it's worth undefined i highly recommend coming and that we have a swag ribbons this year,
who yo are thousand.

[17:33] Get there soon get there early yes girl and black i am so looking forward to it.
I would like to wear a seventy nine thousand people will be disappointed.

[17:46] Good a least a hundred thirty trax time the thousand so yeah i mean it's more like you know forty,
five girls only forty five only forty five dollars and it will be delivered forty five thousand,
what i'm sure they're all at the drum circle right now cuz you know
we will keep doing it and i wanted this i keep telling regina i want
the big power my mind can i have a regency seven and eight i think it's seven at eight but i'll continue level and cheese light of the highest you do when your not yeah.
You know what which can probably forgot i had a piano in their last year in iraq.

[18:32] Call me in like they're going to have to call them at six because and i'm like i woke and i'm going.
It's okay okay enough i apparently went sheet white and mike how many does it hold a hundred and fifty.
Yeah what u blood.
Like i'm not the moderator in them because dragon con gets crazy in the dumps five minutes beforehand moderate in the panel no and then i was saying i was so regina.
Cancel this shit at your mother calling this year and she was telling the story and regina goes,
it doesn't hold a hundred and fifty bucks thousand and fifty i would a little small yeah,
thank you,
give me shit cuz you're not allowed to post freaking out about this cuz apparently i started going there again.
I love it no that's awesome i love it because there is something about that with you see some of these rooms like.

[19:27] Hub id just ask your directors you get that way to sort through everything so sometimes the guests whenever they are there light,
its one day one its always me nate we fill the room and they're like don't worry nobody's fool the remote i like.
It was three hundred and fifty person panel on talking about science and magic.
Awesome that sounds like a really interesting,
i also want to say only a dragon can i would be i wouldn't that if anybody ever find this.
I really would love to get a copy of that program but i got only a dragon pond you see something called blinking beast.
As an actual whole panel topic and not tell me and she's like we're gonna talk about how big is blank.

[20:21] That's a beautiful title that i just got a día.
You know i had help with that anyways we're sitting there talking after the last panel and i'm not sure.
It was christopher jackson,
we're leaving myself what i think we all kinda came up with together and i'll.
It's a fun title is the fun title like that is a refund i got sounds good we have great one i like subtitles,
what is that you're telling me just before the right one in here but ummm you're doing something kind of about young adult or yes we have it handled that um hopefully,
if the schedule works out right we will have david brandon sanderson jodi lynn nine.

[21:09] Cannot remember who else in the panel and no i have somebody monitoring it um what talking about writing why an adult and kinda went and saw that again um because he.
When is all of these are authors who threatened both why an adult.
Add and have very strong feelings about what it should look what the difference is should be and what they should look like in the trends calm.

[21:39] Can i ride all both of every single i've read both are adults and there were so that this is i made a concentrated effort to.

[21:48] Find it do the research on who would be good for this on a lot that so i think that's really the one the always wanna say as parents aunts guardians.
Whatever term you use its so important to get,
kid reading really like you know stuff like google
you know that it'll princess star wars darth vader princess leia buns think it's a little weird cuz there's some issues there but
pic of it because you know i get to start it early built you know any keep going up and i think dan being able to say hey i like this author and their house to a series,
who are younger child or my child from my niece for my nephew my grandchild or whatever god child that is also by that author won't know that someone who is a very,
what author and that great to be able to start somebody on that author really well and also there is some of them at once again in the classic,
some of them and that he has many titles that are very inappropriate and why she wasn't live when i was a genre,
right i mean for good which is it is while for me to say that because she's only been pass for seven years so why is only been really a genre for a short amount of time i remember cuz,
i knew what i was.

[23:17] Not that i'm ok with that because i would a i think that i want to know the technical how old my my spanish,
you got that that's a good one i like that idea
i have to look back at some drunken of my spine was x old then this year and that's a good way to do it like that i only have one response i don't know what you are so,
can i have one woman from italy yeah what's yo on
yeah i have to leave probably get them confused all the time which is fine so i asked my youngest brother and my spine confused some days have that happened yet look i have been called every name.
The from my mother's other sister do my grandmothers name to my sisters and my nieces made before my mother will get to me so it happens so it's because you didn't have to yell at you alot that is actually true but i was the good one,
