Next Apperance

Invite received and all travel arrangements are made, so I can announce that I will be a pro at CoKocon at the end of August. August 30th to September 3rd specifically, so if you live in the Phoenix area, please come see me. Still arranging things with TANSTAAFLPress, but I should have books with me to sell, too. Of course I’ll happily sign a book you already purchased.

Hope to see you there! 🙂


Yes, I will be at Orycon

While I made brief appearance at Jet City Comic Show, (thank you, SciFiMonkeys) my next convention is Orycon, in Portland, Oregon. I’m on the writing and the filk track again this year.  Yay!  So here’s my schedule if you want to catch me to say Hi!

You may notice

That there is a big gap in the dates of these posts. That is because I switched from Livejournal to WordPress because not only did a Russian company take over Livejournal and wants me to agree to a new terms of service (TOS), but the Official TOS is in Russian which I can’t read. Oh they give you a translated version, but warn that it is not “official” therefore not binding.

cat blink what

Since I can’t log in to get my earlier posts unless I accept their TOS.  I am letting it all go, because there is no way I feel comfortable agreeing to something I can’t even read.

I’m back to blogging.

Whether that’s a good thing or not, I’ll have to tell you later.  My editor asked that I take up blogging again, even though I’m on Twitter and Facebook. So Hi!

I hope to blog once a week as my first goal. I think that’s more reasonable for me since blogging everyday was too difficult, and the last thing I want to do is start up again then quit!

Wish me luck.
