Con Report: Cleveland Concoction 2019

March means a return to one of my favorite events of the year: Cleveland ConCoction! This year, I took the Tesla on her first official road trip, which involved stopping at multiple supercharger stations. We had a blast, and I am officially never taking a long trip without navigate on autopilot ever again. FRIDAY IContinue reading “Con Report: Cleveland Concoction 2019”

Cleveland Concoction 2019 Schedule

I’m excited to return to one of my favorite annual events this weekend! I’ll be in Cleveland, Ohio, for Concoction 2019. The spouse is jealous because I’m taking the Tesla for it’s first-ever road trip, as in, I will have to stop at least once each way to recharge at a supercharger stop. But onceContinue reading “Cleveland Concoction 2019 Schedule”

Con Report: Farpoint 2019

Growing up as a military brat, I always had this sense that once I left a place, I would never be back. While looking for a house in the Baltimore area before sixth grade, my family briefly stayed at a hotel, the Hunt Valley Inn. Therefor, it’s always a bit bizarre to be back thereContinue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2019”

Con Report: ChessieCon 2018

Going to a convention after a major holiday would be pretty crazy, but luckily this convention is local, chill, and a chance to visit with friends. So it’s easy to treat it as an extension of the holiday, and I had a lovely time at ChessieCon this year. FRIDAY Friday started with how all daysContinue reading “Con Report: ChessieCon 2018”

Con Report: World Fantasy 2018

When a professional convention in your field is literally in your back yard (or at least 2 blocks away from where you used to work for 12 years), there’s really no excuse not to go. And I’m so glad that I attended World Fantasy 2018 in Baltimore, MD! THURSDAY I worked from home on ThursdayContinue reading “Con Report: World Fantasy 2018”

World Fantasy 2018 Schedule

I’m very excited to attend World Fantasy this year! It’s in Baltimore, so I really have no excuse not to be there. I think it’ll be a great opportunity for me to start meeting agents BEFORE I have a novel to pitch to them (the UFO book, which gets written in 2020!), so it willContinue reading “World Fantasy 2018 Schedule”

Con Report: Capclave 2018

This weekend was amazing, and I’m absolutely exhausted. (I apologize in advance that this con report will not be as in-depth as usual.) I’m very glad that spent the weekend at the hotel, despite Capclave being a “local” convention to where I live (Rockville, Maryland, is a 40-minute drive from my house without traffic). ButContinue reading “Con Report: Capclave 2018”

Con Report: FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention 2018

Wow. What an absolutely amazing trip. [If you’re here to find the copy of my alternate history presentation, you’re in the right place! It’s included below!] I’m not even going to recap last year, because this year blew it out of the water. I was honored to be invited back, and I hope to returnContinue reading “Con Report: FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention 2018”

FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention 2018 Schedule

This weekend I will be attending my second FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention (formerly Salt Lake Comic Con)!

We have a great time people-watching, spending too much money on nerdyContinue reading “FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention 2018 Schedule”
