Fri 10:00 AM, P-510C, 1 hour

Fri 3:30 PM, P-521A, 1 ½ hours
Eric Choi, James Cambias, Louise Marley, Victoria Janssen
(Not sure yet what I'm reading - likely either from The Duchess, Her Maid, The Groom and Their Lover or from Moonlight Mistress. I'm not far enough into the pirate book to feel comfortable reading from it.)

Vampire Rules--and How to Recognize Them Without a Mirror. Are there vampire rules that writers MUST follow? Some experts and enthusiasts discuss vampires, including eastern vs western vampires.
Fri 9:00 PM, P-513B, 1 hour
Victoria Janssen (mod.), Inanna Arthen, Jacqueline Lichtenberg, Karen Dales
(Since I'm the moderator, I defintely want to chat about some Asian vampires, as well as Asian-style Western vampires such as the ones that often show up in anime. I'm also a vampire disliker, so maybe I'm a devil's advocate as well.)

Erotic Writing Sources and Venues: Writers talk about what they write: erotica. How do they research it, how much plot is required, what's the market for it, and how do they keep things "fresh."
Fri 10:00 PM, P-522B, 1 hour
Traci N. Castleberry (mod.), Peter Cohen, Darlene Marshall, Victoria Janssen
(I like this description a lot more than the usual nudge-nudge wink-wink business the erotica panel usually gets. Also, my fellow panelists are great.)

Paranormal Romance for Teens: Who knew romance could be so weird? Meet an author of many of the Sweet Valley High books, and other writers who like to romanticize vampires, werewolves, and zombies.
Sun 10:00 AM, P-524A, 1 hour
Cathy Petrini (mod.), Anne Harris, Carole Ann Moleti, Kerrie Hughes, Victoria Janssen
(I might be the token vampire-disliker on this panel. But I do like werewolves and I love YA, and I've read some pretty good vampire YA in the last year.)
