April begins next week, and for me, that marks the beginning of the convention season, starting with RavenCon. On April 5th I’ll be heading down to Williamsburg for another weekends of meeting with fans of all kinds of media, talking about writing and fandom, and, with luck, getting a few people to give my books a try. So, if you’re going to be in Williamsburg, VA for the first weekend of April, drop in and see me. And to help you do that, here’s a list of where you can find me at the con:

Convention season is upon us once more. For me, that starts this weekend with RavenCon. In a few days I’ll be putting the stresses of the past few months aside and heading to Williamsburg, Virginia for three days of panels, readings, workshops, and other fun. I missed last year’s RavenCon in the press to get The Perils of Prague published, so I’m looking forward to heading back this year. If you’ll be at the con, here’s where to find me: [click to continue…]


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. [click to continue…]


Winter weather has had its way with me of late. Dealing with the dayjob and shoveling out from under waves of snowstorms have given me relatively little time to give attention to the blog. Today I’m home sick from work, so it occurred to me that I should finally spend a few lucid minutes working on a blog post for tomorrow and #WriterWednesday. So, if it wanders a bit, take pity on me. I’m sick.

One thing that did happen that I wanted to share: I will be a guest at RavenCon again this year! OK, that is kinda obvious from the title of this post, but hey, it is still news.  [click to continue…]

Since this post is late, let’s start on a good note: RavenCon tomorrow!RavenCon

After the stresses of the past week, I need to focus on something positive. So let me cover the high points before going into my tale of woe. Perils is back from the editor. Lots of comments and some general notes on some meat of the story that didn’t seem to make it out of my head and onto the page. I need to get back with my editor and discuss some of the issues with her, but first life just had to get busy making other plans for me. [click to continue…]


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… [click to continue…]


Life, it has been said, is what happens while you were making other plans. My last post talked about some of the things that life has brought me, recently. This post, is about the other plans I’ve made. Last year, at Balticon, I started what I had termed my “summer project” to get my novel The Perils of Prague ready for publication by the end of the summer. That project did not go off as planned… [click to continue…]
