August 2012 Preview

I don’t think I really have to say much about why August is going to be a fun month for FANgirl Blog. So let’s get right to it, in chronological order.

X-Wing: Mercy KillWe’ll have a spoiler review from Kay on release day, Tuesday the 7th. Be sure to run out and get your copy, and support Aaron Allston and the X-Wing series.

GeekGirlCon – I’ll have daily reports from the convention, but of course the highlight for me will be my first-ever convention panel as host. The Star Wars EU panel – From Jedi Princess to Sith Witch: An Exploration of Female Characters in Star Wars – is Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Pacific Time, so look for a late post that day.

Star Wars Celebration VI – Just two weeks later, August 23-26 in Orlando, is the big Star Wars event of the year. Naturally we’ll have lots of coverage on the blog, and hopefully great news about things to come for our favorite female heroines.
