Fortunately this time it's the latter option.
And, even better, I get to do all sorts of awesome stuff at the con this year. Due to my well-earned reputation for being willing to be ridiculous on camera/the internet, HarperTeen asked me to be their official correspondent. My duties include interviewing the other HarperCollins authors you are dying to hear more from (Aprilynne Pike! Dan Wells! Michelle Gagnon! Rae Carson! SJ Kincaid! Ned Vizzini!), popping up as a special guest at the HarperTeen preview panel, and speaking on a panel with a bunch of super cool authors (including Amber Benson whom I will absolutely not even think about referring to as Tara from Buffy). (NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.)
So basically what I am saying is, if you are at Comic-Con, FIND ME IT'S GONNA BE AWESOME.
And, if you are not at Comic-Con, I'VE STILL GOT YOUR BACK WITH TONS OF FUN VIDEOS OF INTERVIEWS AND OTHER GOOFERY AROUND THE CON. I'm so excited about this because HarperTeen is giving everyone a chance to get a feel for what Comic-Con is like, as well as see more from some seriously awesome authors. Yay!
My official timey things are:
What's New at HarperVoyager and HarperTeen Preview, Saturday, 7-8 PM room 9
Foes with Furs and Fangs panel, Sunday, 1:45-2:45 room 5AB, with a signing to follow
My unofficial things include interviews and count-the-slave-Leias and otherwise running around like a gremlin on a sugar high. And if you find me on the floor (meaning not at one of my panels or signings), and say the following secret phrase: "So, how are you preparing for the unicorn apocalypse?" I will give you a prize! Prizes may be anything from candy to books to toys, because that's how my purse of wonders works.
And, best of all, if you are at the con, ENDLESSLY will be for sale early!
But if you aren't, no worries--TWO MORE WEEKS, GUYS!
