Panel Topics: What do you want your favorite authors to talk about?

Hello Hallowreaders!

Have you ever been to a convention and wished you favorite authors had talked more about a certain character, plot line or even themselves? Right now Hallowread is working on panel topics and we want to hear from you! Stop by our facebook page www.facebook/Hallowread or leave a comment and tell us what panels you'd like to attend. If your panel is picked we'll enter your name in a drawing to moderate on of the panels during the event!
