How To Get Hold Of Kit At NYCC

It is my belief that the easiest way to get hold of me will be through Twitter. I am ce_murphy on Twitter, and I’ll do my best to post announcements of where I am or where I’m going on a regular basis.

I have also created a priority filter for Gmail, which is probably going to be the 2nd best way to get hold of me. It is therefore critical if you want to be sure I’ll see your email during daytime hours, that you put NYCC in the subject line. Anything else and I’ll get to it after-hours. My email address is cemurphyauthor at gmail dot com.

I haven’t leveled up far enough to handle Facebook on the mobile, so it’s not a good way at all to get hold of me during the con. :)

The following is my schedule. Not to repeat myself, but let me say for the seventy-third or soth time that professional commitments & opportunities trump everything else, which means there are four items from Friday morning onward on this list that are sacrosanct: the Del Rey Panel, the NYCC-assigned book signing, & the two publisher-supported book signings. Everything else I’ll do my best to make it to, and to be timely, but make no set-in-stone promises. :)

I will do my very best to update Twitter if I’m going to totally fail to be somewhere. Really, even if you don’t have a Twitter account yourself, it’s going to be the best place to find out where I am, if not communicate with me. Just go to ce_murphy on Twitter and you’ll be able to read my posts there. Did I mention that’ll be the best place to find out where I’ll be?
