The Perth Supanova convention is advertising Ashley's panel as a last minute cancellation at this years event, which has caused some fans to ask why? The simple answer is that when approached last year to appear at the Supanova convention Ashley agreed to two signings at the 2013 show and did not agree to appear at a panel this year. I can only assume that because Ash has done panels in the past that he was placed on the schedule anyway, thus they had to announce a cancellation.
At no point did anyone bug out on an agreed upon event, Ash made the decision not to bounce around for a couple of hours anywhere this year due to the fact that our scheduled shows are so close together. We've just done France, we're about to jet off to San Diego and in the middle of all that we have Wonderfest in Japan. Given that we're also working and producing as normal, the decision was made to keep to signings at all events for 2013.
Ash will be signing for a second time at 1PM WST and if you want to talk to him, you're welcome to come along and introduce yourself and say hello.
