Headed to ConCarolina's

So we’ll be headed down to ConCarolina’s tomorrow to brave the mad crush of folks who want to see George RR Martin.

I’ll be splitting my time between the ConGregate table, my author table which I’m sharing with the incredible Janine Spendlove, and doing a few panels.

Breakfast and Books Saturday 9:00am
Writing for Anthologies II Saturday 12:00N
Brigands, Thieves and Pirates Saturday 8:00pm

So, if you've ever wanted to buy one of the anthologies that I'm in, stop by the table, I'll have copies of a couple of them!

And if by some chance, you haven't registered for ConGregate, stop by that table and we'll get you taken care of!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Happy May!

It’s been an eventful couple of months.  I’ve attended a couple conventions, returned to the HR world full-time and had another short story published.

Con-wise, we attended illogicon, Mysticon and Ravencon so far this year.   There’s been an unusual trend in emergencies in hotels – illogicon had a tornado warning, and Mysticon and Ravencon each had the fire alarm go off.  Not sure what set off Mysticon’s but apparently the Ravencon hotel was hit by lightning.   Certainly makes for exciting conversations! 

Next up in the con-circuit is ConCarolinas which is likely to be packed to the gills this year with GOH George RR Martin.  I will be splitting my time between the ConGregate table and a table I’m sharing with Janine Spendlove.  I’ll actually have books for sale!! 

My part time position at the Center for Creative Leadership moved to full-time in April.  Good in terms of working, bad in terms of time for writing.  It does mean that if I’m ever going to finish a novel, I really need to start buckling down and getting it done.  ::sigh::

I did have my first horror story published.  It’s in DarkFairy Tales Revisited by Horrorfied Press.  My husband describes it as “Not Disney’s Cinderella.” It was a bit of a challenge to write, and while I enjoyed stretching my wings on it, I’m probably not going to be called to do a lot more horror writing. I think I’ll stick with fantasy and SF.

Lastly, my darling husband, beta-reader and webmaster, has updated my WEBSITE!  We’re keeping it clean and simple, but I really like the color scheme.  Is there anything else you’d like to see on the website?

Well, that’s pretty much the extent of the last few months.  Hard to believe we’re already in May!
