I'm a participating author at the ConFusion convention in Detroit, January 19 to 22. ConFusion is one of my favorite conventions, featuring a strong literary focus with a laid-back and accessible attitude.

Blurring the Lines
Sunday at 10:00 AM, Keweenaw
Genre is sometimes described as little more than arbitrary marketing categories, but readers and writers often define themselves by their preferred genre. What makes a genre distinct, and what happens when those distinctions are imported into another genre? Is it just a crossover, or an illustration that the distinctions are arbitrary?
Brandon Black (M), Jackie Morgan, Cherie Priest, Jason Sanford, Kristine Smith
