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: ChessieCon 2017

The curtain has closed on my final convention of 2017. For all the other drama of the year, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every convention (new and old) I’ve attended this year, and I can’t wait to do it all again in 2018. FRIDAY Since ChessieCon is held less than half an hour away from my house,Continue reading “Con Report: ChessieCon 2017”

WhereContinue reading “ChessieCon 2017 Schedule”

Con Report: Balticon 51

Since Balticon is my “local” convention, I was thrilled to finally be invited to participate as a panelist this year. I hadn’t been back since 2006, but the convention was just as great as I remembered, filled with fantastic panels, extraordinarily nice people, and amazing hall costumes. FRIDAY  Since I work in a nearby partContinue reading “Con Report: Balticon 51”
