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.
In May 2012, Silence will be published by DAW. Written as Michelle Sagara, it’s a contemporary fantasy, and the first book in the trilogy The Queen of the Dead. Cast in Peril will be published at the end of September, 2012, by Luna books. Battle, the fifth House War novel, will be published January, 2013.
