I had a wonderful time at this last weekend’s WisCon 43, which was held in Madison, Wisconsin at the Concourse Hotel. Not only did I attend as a vendor peddling my EMPATHY-verse wares, but I was also included on a panel about writing a series and had the chance to lead a couple of workshops on the craft of writing.

There were dozens of engaging sessions throughout the weekend that covered everything from capitalist anxiety, labor exploitation in space, queer storytelling versus stories that feature queer characters—you name it, there was a panel or discussion about it.

Here are some photos from the weekend!

And there you have it–another event on the EMPATHY spring and summer tour has come and gone. There are still a number of chances to meet up in the coming months, so be sure to check those out.

If you’re unable to attend any event—or simply can’t wait for them to arrive to get your hands on a copy of a book in the EMPATHY series—you can find books one and two below!
