I hope folks have been enjoying the ZOUNDS! posts, which I’ve been managing to write with some degree of frequency. It’s been a while since my last regular blog post, but I’ve finally got several items worth mentioning…
First, on the convention front, two big updates.
World Fantasy Convention: I’m happy to report that I will indeed be attending the World Fantasy Convention this October, notwithstanding memberships having sold out before I tried to purchase one. I still haven’t heard back regarding the waiting list I signed up for, but a friend who had purchased her own membership and now unfortunately cannot attend kindly agreed to transfer her membership to me. The proper forms have been filed, and I’m now officially attending!
Historical Novel Society Conference: In addition to being a panelist on the programming item I mentioned in my earlier post, I was also recently contacted to fill in as moderator on a panel whose previous moderator had to back out. So my revised panel schedule for the conference is as follows:
Saturday, June 18
Historical Fiction and the Fantastic (9:45-10:45am)
Christopher M. Cevasco (moderator), Cecilia Holland, C.C. Humphreys, Shauna Roberts, Mary Sharratt
Alternate History (11:00am-noon)
Ann Chamberlin (moderator), Christopher Cevasco, Stoney Compton, Harry Turtledove
The conference is just around the corner, and I’m really looking forward to it! Hopefully I’ll see some of you there.
In other news, I recently took the plunge into Facebook. If you’ve also been assimilated, please stop by and visit me at My Page.
For the next month or so, there are a couple of short stories I’d like to write–ideas that were percolating while I wrote Dreaming the North (my novel). One will be historical fantasy, the other a mystery (something I’ve never tried to write before). Once I get those done, then it’s back to writing books two and three of the Dreaming trilogy. More soon…
