I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, unless New Jersey counts.
Visited family last week in north Jersey and went into NYC to have lunch with my agent and both of my editors (not all at the same time). It was my first trip to a publisher's office, and even though on the inside it looked like any other office building, just seeing that SIMON & SCHUSTER sign on the outside of the building filled me with awe. I'm such a book geek.
Anyway, this weekend I'll be at Capclave, a science fiction/fantasy convention in Rockville, MD, put on by the ever-awesome Washington Science Fiction Society. Unlike previous years, I'll actually be staying at the hotel both nights instead of just commuting in for the day Saturday. So it'll feel less like a job and more like an adventure, mainly because there'll be drinking involved.
Here are the specifics:
Friday, October 12
7PM - Urban fantasy: Can a small-town elf make it in the big city? with Jim Freund, Michael Swanwick, Tom Doyle, and Marilyn "Mattie" Brahen.
11PM - Cover art: Why does my protagonist look like Julie Bell? with Roger MacBride Allen, Lawrence Watt-Evans, and Michael Swanwick.
Saturday, October 13
10AM - Writer's Workshop with Allen Wold, with L. Jagi Lamplighter, and Edmund Schubert.
2PM - Romance and SF/F with Victoria McManus, Mary Jo Putney, Maria Snyder, and Bud Sparhawk.
10PM - Reading from Eyes of Crow, Voice of Crow, and possibly Wicked Game
Sunday, October 14
9AM - Writer's Workshop follow-up, with Allen Wold (the only other person crazy enough to get up for a 9AM workshop).
