Reading

The time is almost upon us! Yes, Balticon! And if you’d like to find me at Balticon, here is where you can look. I will be quite busy this year, with 7 panels, plus a reading, a book launch, and an autograph session! I will also be in the Dealer’s room this year, as part of  a co-op of writers. If you don’t find me there, you should be able to find my book, The Perils of Prague. As for the rest of the convention…

It is convention time again. Time for what will be my last con of the 2016 convention season. Yup, I’m talking about the con in my back yard: Capclave. If you’re going to be in the Gaithersburg, Maryland area and you enjoy good fiction and want to hear all kinds of authors and other artists talk about the nature of modern writing, I know where you want to be this weekend.

Yes, it is almost time for Balticon, my favorite con event of the year! And that means it is also time to publish my Balticon schedule! Which I would do… if I had it. Which I don’t exactly.B50_banner_1

cropped-RavenCon2016This weekend is Ravencon! I’ll be back at the con as a guest again this year, although the con itself will be in a new site at the DoubleTree in Williamsburg Virginia. I hope you’ll be able to go to Ravencon, and if you do go, here is where you can find me.

Things have been awfully busy and confused at Swimming Cat Studios of late. Yes, the Cat was confused. (extra points if you get that reference!) But today, we’re very happy to be part of a new cover reveal by author Lauren Harris. Today Lauren is revealing the cover of her new book in her Millroad Academy Exorcists series. Some of you may remember the review I posted for the first book in the series, Exorcising Aaron Nguyen. Well, in anticipation of the release of the new book in the series, Lauren is letting folks see the new cover, designed by Starla Huchton.

I must apologize for not posting here lately. Life has been very busy, and in my most productive time I’ve knuckled down on doing my voice recording, to keep to the schedule I agreed on with the producer. There hasn’t been as much time for blogging as I’d like. It has helped me regain some focus, though. I have a bad habit of working on too many projects at once and losing myself between them. While it is good to have the next project waiting in the wings, one must always keep focused on the current goal.

Naturally, nothing is final until we get there, but here is what I’ve been told my schedule for this year’s Balticon is going to look like. Unlike earlier years, the schedule won’t be so heavy, in part because I believe Balticon has more guests this year than they have in the past. I won’t be doing a recording of The Shrinking Man Project for Balticon this year, but I will be doing a few new and interesting things, as well as keeping up with some old favorites.

We are just back from RavenCon, and already we’re looking forward to Balticon in just a few short weeks. RavenCon was a blast. I got to meet new people and visit with some old friends, and even got pulled into being part of a reading of the Eye of Argon in place of Philippa Ballantine. But that is a story for another post… This post is about Balticon 48, and what is coming up in the next few weeks. One thing that I’d nearly forgotten just jumped up and hit me by surprise: an impending publication!

The 2014 convention season is about to kick off for me. This time around, the year starts off with RavenCon. Last year, I went to RavenCon as a vendor. This year, I’ll be returning as a panelist! And apparently, it is going to be a big year for RavenCon. The con hotel has already sold out, and they are trying to make arrangements with other nearby hotels. The con is less than a month off, but the schedule is starting to come together…

I want your money.

This is a generally true statement, but I have this thing about providing value in exchange for payment, so I spend a good bit of time writing stories and creating voicework so that you’ll have something to make you feel a bit better about turning your money over to me. The rest? The rest is just to keep you interested until I have something ready to convince you to turn your money over to me.

Today is a little different.

Oh, I still want your money, I just don’t want you to turn it over to me. I want you to hand it over to someone else.
