Visit Me at OddCon During These Panels

From April 24th through the 26th, I will be appearing at Odyssey Con 2009, a small science fiction and fantasy convention held here in Madison, Wisconsin. This will be the first convention I’ll be speaking at this year, and I’ve taken on quite a few panels in order to share my thoughts with you and promote my work. Unfortunately, my new short story that will appear in the Buried Tales of Pinebox, TX anthology may not be released just yet. I’ll bring along a few copies of the Tales of the Seven Dogs Society, though. Here are the panels I’ll be appearing on:

  • Networking at conventions (15)
  • Worldbuilding – Some Necessary Background (31) Waiting Confirmation
  • GAME FICTION: The Good, the Bad the Ugly (89)
  • SF and Horror (91)
  • So You Wanna Be A Freelancer? (107)

In addition to the OddCon panels that I will be appearing on with Guests of Honor Patrick Rothfuss and Sarah Monette, you can join in the fun! Be sure to check out the fiction writing contest and come to network with other writers and fans of the genre. Also on hand will be Emma Bull Guest of Honor, Matt Forbeck, novelist and game writer, Michael Damien Thomas and Lynne Thomas, Jeff Preston, Illustrator, Matt M McElroy of the Flames Rising Horror and Dark Fantasy Webzine and several other wonderful guests!

Hope to see you there!

Want to Interview or Hire Me? Send Fan Mail?

Would you like to hire me? Because my projects and manuscripts are in flux, I am always open to discussing new opportunities with publishers and studios. As a full-time writer, I spend a portion of my time seeking new gigs–so don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re interested, please e-mail me via my Contact Page. I typically reply to work-related e-mails within one-to-two business days.

Want an interview? If you’d like to interview me or request a guest blog post, please connect with me via the contact page, too. Due to time constraints and other communicative concerns, I typically don’t follow up on requests via social media.

Keen on sending fan mail? I am also happy to engage with readers and fans. Please note that I am unable to reply satisfactorily to certain types of queries related to the companies I work for due to the agreements I typically sign. If you have a question about a TV show or a line of books, the best way to get your answer is to contact the studio or publisher directly.
