Coming events

Published by at 11:18 pm under Uncategorized,Writing

Coming up in a few weeks I’m scheduled as a speaker at the July 18 DASFA (Denver Area SF Association) meeting. (Their web site is somewhat dated, but the meeting time/place info is still correct.). The next day (July 19), I’ll be at Who Else! Books in Denver, signing copies of the Footprints anthology. Better than that, fellow (and better known) Colorado author James Van Pelt will also be at the signing, he has a story in Footprints too. (Jim may also be speaking at the DASFA meeting the evening before, I’m a bit fuzzy on the details.)

Before that, I’ll be going to Westercon (aka FiestaCon), the big western regional SF con in Temp, Arizona over the July 4th weekend. I’m just a con-goer at this one, not speaking, but I’m looking forward to seeing some old friends and meeting new ones. I’ll be cleverly disguised as myself, if you see me feel free to step up and say hello.

    Sounds like you’re going to be a busy fellow. I hope you get some action at the FOOTPRINTS signing. It looks like it’s going to be a good anthology. Did you get your stories together for SHINE and DESTINATION: FUTURE?

    Thanks Brad. There are some great stories in FOOTPRINTS – I got to read the all the proofs – and it’s interesting to read the all the different takes on the theme.

    The SHINE anthology deadline got pushed back a month, and I’m taking advantage of that extra time. I did get stories into WOTF, DESTINATION: FUTURE, ASIMOV’S and ORSON SCOTT CARD’S INTERGALACTIC MEDICINE SHOW, and frankly I’ll be very happy if even one of them sells into those markets. After this last blitz I’m going to focus a bit on getting my novel(s) into shape.
