For those who don’t know, I used to live in Boston. Liked it fine, but liked NYC better, which is why I’m here. But while I was there, I also liked a little local SF con called Readercon. Haven’t been back since, though, so it was very nice to be invited this year, since I’ve […]

Taboo 3 Reading at Wiscon

I’m not here right now. At the sound of the beep, I will probably be flying over the flyover states, only to stop and land in one of them: Wisconsin, where there will be Wisconnage. Wiscon is probably my favorite SFF convention, with its mix of Deep Social Issues conversation and sheer aesthetically-pleasing silliness: Black […]

Last Minute Promo is Last Minute

Gah! Been so obsessed with book 3 that I’ve missed a few things. Quick update: First, I’m going to be phone interviewed tonight, at the blog Other Worlds of Romance. You can tune in on BlogTalk Radio (see the widget on her site). Next! I’ll be at Wiscon starting on Thursday. I did mention that, […]

Danvers Literary Festival tomorrow

For those of you in the Boston area, I’ll be in my old stomping grounds again briefly as part of the Danvers Literary Festival, all day at the Peabody Institute Library of Danvers. I’ll be on a fantasy panel with fellow New Yorker Leanna Renee Hieber, and an old buddy from the BRAWLers writing group […]

The Romance Pitch

Wow. RT has been an Experience — all good, but a bit overwhelming. I’m not on any panels or anything; mostly I just wanted to get a better understanding of the romance genre. And man, was this the place to do it. Have been schmoozing with authors like Karen Miller and Linnea Sinclair, as well […]

Books for NYC Schools reading this Saturday!

Local folks: I’ll be reading this Saturday at the Center for Fiction as part of the Books for NYC Schools event. This is basically a day that’s chock-full of writers and readings and incredibly cool events, as both big-name authors and n00bs like me come out to try and help kids in NYC schools get […]

I go you go HUGO (nom)! Also, reading.

More good news: “Non-Zero Probabilities”, my Clarkesworld story that’s already on the Final Ballot for the Nebula award, has also been nommed for the Hugo! There are no words to describe how stunned and thrilled I am by this. (Well, “stunned and thrilled” come close.) Seriously, ya’ll, this has been a banner year and it’s […]

The Cascade Effect

Things haven’t really slowed down for me since Launch Week, which is a good thing, but the result of this has been that I’ve been a little slack on blogging. Sorry, folks! But here’s what’s going on this week, for example: The copyedit of book 2, The Broken Kingdoms, is due on Friday. But… …since […]
