Last month I went down to Victoria to be part of a panel at the Gottacon gaming convention.  The theme was “So You Want to Become a Published Author” and my fellow panelists were Alyx Dellamonica (who’s very good), Dave Duncan (one of Canada’s top-selling fantasy authors) and T.J. Silver, who was just in the process of making a seven-book deal with Random House.

Karl Johanson, editor of Neo-Opsis Science Fiction Magazine, video-recorded most of the panel.  He synched his video with an audio recording made by Jules Sherred, the moderator, and has now posted it on YouTube.

There’s some pretty good information there.
