I mentioned earlier that I am one of the (many) guests at this year’s Confluence — which is going online, and is called C’monfluence. It’s free — although they’re accepting donations if people both want and can afford them. Most of the sessions will be held on Zoom; some of it will be held on discord — the links of which are also on the web-site. HOWEVER: all of the zoom events require registration or pre-registration, and there might be a channel limit to the number of people they can reasonably support. The complete list is available now on the web-site with registration links, and I’ve just cut and paste the parts of the schedule that actually involve me >.>. I don’t quite know how the discord will work – it … Continue reading

Before I talk a bit about the short story, I have convention news! Confluence, a Pittsburgh convention, has decided to go on-line this year, shifting its name to C’monfluence. I have not done an on-line convention yet, but I’ll be one of the on-line guests. I don’t have a lot of information about what, exactly, I’ll be participating in yet, but it’s free to register/join. Today’s short story — on Monday, even — is Flight. It’s the second dinosaur story (there has been no third, and it’s not connected to the first one). The only thing I remembered about this one – before formatting and proofing – was the use of two names, tuckerizations of two real life people I knew from GEnie. I didn’t remember the actual plot, just flashes of scenes; I also didn’t remember how I ended it >.<. The … Continue reading
Tantor Media has just released The Uncrowned King, the second book of the Sun Sword series, in audio, narrated by Eva Wilhelm, the narrator for the House War series. As you can see, they’re using a different cover for the audiobook, (they’re using a different cover for Broken Crown as well, but I kind of missed that one >.>). In other news, I am going on a desperately needed writing retreat (deadlines), but will be back for Can*Con in Ottawa. This is very last minute for me because I wasn’t certain I could make it, so I don’t have a schedule that I can post. I will post a schedule if it arrives before I get back from writing, but I’ll probably be a little bit scarce until then.
I am home. I have more or less recovered from the flight between Melbourne and Toronto (Michelle is not the world’s best traveler, for all kinds of reasons, not the least of which is: when I get off the plane, the first thing I want to do is crawl into my own bed and sleep for a day.) I loved Melbourne, though. I got a lot of work done, there. I have been working on Cast in Flame. My simple “Kaylin needs to find a new apartment plot” has kind of been hit hard by two unforeseen complications. Unforeseen because I had originally thought of doing this story before Kaylin went to the West March. After the West March has complications that arise naturally from Cast in Sorrow. (I am … Continue reading
July 27 – 29: I will be attending Confluence, the small SF convention in Pittsburgh that I try to attend every year. Seanan McGuire is both the author Guest of Honor and the Filk Guest of Honor. I have a very tentative schedule, but it’s likely to change a bit, so I’ll hold off on posting it. August 30-September 3: Worldcon!. November 1 – 4: World Fantasy Convention. I theoretically have more free time (any non-guest of honor attendee can sign up for one panel, because there’s a much higher number of authors to readers ratio), but the convention is also in the suburbs of Toronto, which means the bookstore (where I still work part-time) will have tables there.
