I have been invited to speak on a panel at Con Of Thrones in Nashville Tennessee on July 12-15. The invitation to speak was extended at a later date than what is common since the panel spot needed to be filled due to a unexpected issue with the former panelists availability. Needless to say the costs of travel and room and board are much higher due to late booking . I am asking anyone who is able and willing to consider helping me with the final costs as the event is a week out . Any amount helps whether it’s 5 dollars or 50 all donations are appreciated .
