Always subject to change, but here’s what’s on the slate so far:
March 24—Rainbow Book Fair, New York, NY
I’ll be at the Dreamspinner Press table for part of the time, probably wandering around for the rest.
May 4–6—Outlantacon, Atlanta, GA
I’ll be an official guest for the first time! Panel schedules are still being worked out, but I’ll be on at least a couple.
August 31–September 3—Dragon*Con, Atlanta, GA
On staff, as usual. No official events yet, but we may put together another M/M author meetup like we did for last year.
October 18–21—GayRomLit, Albuquerque, NM
I’ll be there as an author this time around, yee-haw!
Back home after an incredibly busy, very tiring, and hugely fun Dragon*Con weekend! I was thrilled to get to meet a bunch of other M/M authors and spend a few hours talking with them, plus the readers and others who came by to say hi. I even sold a couple of books, woo! I’ll try to get into a little more detail after I’ve had time to rest up a bit.
Of course, D*C made me a day late on this, but Lou Sylvre was nice enough to feature me at her blog yesterday. She asked some great questions, and she assured me my answers didn’t come across as fuzzy-headed as I was feeling when I wrote them up Saturday afternoon! She also has information on Sand & Water, including a couple of excerpts. Stop by and check it out!
And finally, I’m pleased to announce that Silver Publishing will be including my short story “In From The Cold” in their 25 Days of Christmas collection in December!
So it’s evening of the first full day of Dragon*Con, and my tailfeathers are sagging. Note to self: never plan to cook a fried chicken dinner for nine the same weekend as D*C. Fun, yes; relaxing, not so much.
I haven’t actually had a chance to get out and do much yet. I worked a shift yesterday afternoon (I’m on the Daily Dragon staff), and my houseguests and I were all moving slowly this morning, so we didn’t get back down to the convention until around noon. Checked in at the office, hit FedEx for copies, took a trip through the dealer room, grabbed some dinner, and came back to the room to rest.
In a few minutes, I’ll start getting ready for the 25th Anniversary Masked Ball, and then I’ll go straight from there to my first overnight shift. I think the heating pad will go with me. My back is already complaining.
Hope to see some of you tomorrow! Marriott 10th Floor, 1 to 3 p.m. Just look for the signs.
Okay, I know I’m going overboard with the Cake Wrecks love this weekend, but today’s Sunday Sweets is dedicated to Dragon*Con! And since I’m an annual attendee (and volunteer), I certainly couldn’t resist linking to that.
Also for Dragon*Con, I’ve been putting together an unofficial “meet the M/M authors” event. Information is subject to change, but for those who’ll be in downtown Atlanta this weekend, here you go:
EVENT: Meet the Authors of M/M Fiction at Dragon*Con
TIMES: 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 3, & Sunday, September 4
LOCATION: Marriott Marquis Atlanta, 10th Floor Lobby
SCHEDULED TO ATTEND: Kiernan Kelly, Silvia Violet, Adrienne Wilder, T.C. Blue, Shae Connor, B. Snow, Kerry Freeman, Kage Alan, Pearl Love, Helen Pattskyn, Nessa Warin
Buy a book, pick up swag, get an autograph, enter to win a prize, or just say hi—whatever you like, I hope some of you will be able to stop in!
Busy few weeks coming up. As some of you may recall (heh), my first novel, Sand & Water, releases a week from tomorrow (August 15). I’ve got several posts planned here leading up to it. I’ll have a guest blog for Cup O’ Porn later in the week. On the 15th, I’ll be taking over the Dreamspinner Press blog and will have giveaways and snippets to share. The following Saturday, the 20th, I’ll be chatting at Dreamspinner’s Goodreads page.
In the meantime, I’m working on two submissions due next week, and another due at the end of the month. Not to mention trying to get some actual writing time! And then there’s Dragon*Con weekend, and I’m working on setting up a “meet the authors” event (or two) for several of the M/M authors who’ll be attending.
I should start buying lottery tickets again. Maybe if I win, I can hire someone to do all the ancillary things so I can just write!
>I’ve been falling down on the job around here. A few updates:
- Silver Publishing’s Never Say Never Valentine’s Day anthology, which includes my short story “Stripped,” will be out Saturday, February 12.
- My standalone short story “The Cabin on the Hill” will be out Wednesday, February 16, from Dreamspinner Press.
- I’ve just submitted a short story for an upcoming Dreamspinner anthology and have another in the works.
- My first novel, “Sand and Water,” is progressing through editing and revisions. I’m shooting for a March submission.
- I plan to attend two conventions here in Atlanta with Dreamspinner. Gaylaxicon/Outlantacon is May 13–15, and Dragon*Con is September 2–5. Hope to see you there!
