Review: Charisma Check (Roll for Love #2) by Charlie Novak

Read my review of Roll for Love #1: Natural Twenty Reading this book when I haven’t been able to attend a fan convention in person for nearly a year was both bittersweet and precisely what I needed at the same time. I’m not a cosplayer (you’ll find me over in the writing and fandom tracks),Continue reading “Review: Charisma Check (Roll for Love #2) by Charlie Novak”

Con Report: Farpoint 2021

Let’s face it — for the weird sorts of introvert like me, who can put that on hold for a certain amount of time to people it up for two or three days at a convention and then hide at home for a week afterward, a virtual event will never be the same. As muchContinue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2021”

Farpoint 2021 Schedule

Farpoint 2020 was the last event I attended in person before the world went bonkers. Alas, like so many other conventions, it is being held online this year. I’m pleased to participate in three panels from the comfort of my own home, but you know I’ll miss seeing all of your lovely faces. Find moreContinue reading “Farpoint 2021 Schedule”

Review: Conventionally Yours (True Colors #1) by Annabeth Albert

2020 has been a bit of a year, and one of the things I miss most is going to conventions to spend time with fellow readers and writers and gamers. Even though my gaming is mostly on the computer, the social aspect mixed with the competition is familiar enough to me that this book suckedContinue reading “Review: Conventionally Yours (True Colors #1) by Annabeth Albert”

Con Report: Capclave 2020

The world we live in continues to be absolutely bonkers, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying a lovely Saturday of conversing with fellow authors about world-building and the fantasy genre as part of Capclave 2020. Alas, both panels were via Zoom from the comfort of my home office, so I’m still in hardcore withdrawalContinue reading “Con Report: Capclave 2020”

Con Report: Virtual Balticon 54

Last weekend, I did my hair, put on clothing that had nothing to do with working out, and attended (virtual) Balticon 54! I participated in four excellent and informative panels from the comfort of my own office with appropriate feline supervision. Perks to a virtual convention: Sleeping in my own bed, eating decent meals, notContinue reading “Con Report: Virtual Balticon 54”

Con Report: Farpoint 2020

I attended my third year at Farpoint in Baltimore, Maryland, this past weekend and had an absolute blast spending time with friends and being a panelist on some of my favorite topics. I wish I’d been able to hang out more in the evening with people, but I commuted from home this year and hadContinue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2020”

Looking for the full slide set for my “Alternate History: Creating Stories by Changing the Past” presentation? See below! Usually I try to have my convention reports posted on the Wednesday after the con, but this month I had the crazy idea that I could do two events in a row. So because I traveledContinue reading “Con Report: Starbase Indy 2019”
