Con Report: In Your Write Mind 2021

I’ll admit it — I’m not cut out for the virtual convention life. I had a conversation with a friend earlier this week and brought up how late I was in writing this con report, and she pointed out that my experience with this year’s In Your Write Mind 2021 was even more skewed thanContinue reading “Con Report: In Your Write Mind 2021”

Con Report: Balticon 55

For the second year in a row, the Baltimore Science Fiction Society hosted their annual convention, Balticon, as a virtual, online event. The perk to this is enjoying panels from the comfort of my own home; the drawback is the lack of social connection I generally enjoy at in-person events. The organizers did an amazingContinue reading “Con Report: Balticon 55”

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”

Capclave 2020 Schedule

Like many conventions this year, Capclave 2020 has gone virtual! Instead of spending this weekend in Rockville, Maryland, you can hang out with me from the comfort of your home. Registration is required for this convention: $10 gives you access to all of this weekend’s content, and $55 gives you access to all of thisContinue reading “Capclave 2020 Schedule”
