Last weekend I attended Farpoint, a pop culture convention local to the Baltimore area, as a panelist and presenter on the writing and fandom tracks! As I explained to a handful of authors that I met for the first time during the event, I don’t generally attend conventions for the primary purpose of selling books.Continue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2023”

Con Report: FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention 2022
Sorry for the delay with this post — the spouse and I got home very late Sunday night, and the day job is trying to eat me alive this week.

Capclave 2022 Schedule!
Two conventions in a row?! Yes. I’ll be attending Capclave 2022 this upcoming weekend, hosted by the Washington Science Fiction Association! As this convention is local (or at least more local than Utah), I will be commuting from home, not staying at the host hotel. (Also, I think my cats would riot.) But since thisContinue reading “Capclave 2022 Schedule!”

May Wrap-Up & June Goals
I started May with all of the plans. Lots of writing while the spouse was away for work. Two conventions. Finally, some warm weather! I got exactly one of those things. Spouse came down with a cough the first weekend, and we discovered by the first Tuesday that both of us finally got the plague.Continue reading “May Wrap-Up & June Goals”
Con Report: Balticon 56
Last weekend, I attended my sixth Balticon as a panelist. In some ways, this year was even stranger than the completely virtual conventions of the past 2 years in that programming was a mix of in-person events at the usual hotel in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and virtual panels open to participants worldwide. Due to aContinue reading “Con Report: Balticon 56”
Balticon 56 Schedule
May convention, take 2! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend StokerCon because the spouse brought COVID home from work. But I’m all better, tested negative, and ready to go! Balticon is my “home convention” so it has a permanent spot on my annual schedule. My weekend is packed with events, both live and virtual, soContinue reading “Balticon 56 Schedule”
StokerCon 2022 Schedule [redacted]
Yesterday, I was super excited to tell you all about my upcoming trip to Denver for StokerCon! What you didn’t know, if you don’t follow me on social media, is that the spouse and I both finally caught COVID last week. We’re both vaccinated and boosted, but since the spouse is military, it was literallyContinue reading “StokerCon 2022 Schedule [redacted]”

Due to a series of fortuitous events, I will be attending StokerCon 2022 in Denver, Colorado, this week, from Thursday May 12 to Sunday May 15! However, for the first time in years, I am not attending a convention as a programming participant. (sad trombone noises) But JL! You are not a horror writer!
