29 March 2015: Myke will be at Emerald City Comicon! 27–29 March

I’m heading to the west coast to hang at Seattle’s answer to NYCC, Emerald City Comic Con! I’ll be doing panels Friday and Sunday, a signing Friday (I’ll tweet about it as details come avail­able) and a Drinks with Authors event on Sat­urday night (that’s already booked solid, so if you’re going I’ll see you there).

It’s a smaller Comicon, and I’ll be around, so please catch up to me to get one of my Trigger Dis­ci­pline rib­bons, get a book signed or just to say hi! Tweet me at @MykeCole if you’re trying to track me down and I’ll let you know where I’m at.
