I decided to say no to all in-person conventions this year to keep our household risk as low as possible (which I’m feeling even better about now because of the Delta variant—good job, past me!), but that doesn’t mean you can’t see me this convention season!
First up, you can hear me read at the Strong Women, Strange Worlds panel on August 19th! This is a series celebrating the work of women and other authors with underrepresented gender identities.
I’ll be reading an excerpt from my award-nominated debut novel Implanted and be giving away a copy to one lucky participant. You can pre-register at EventBrite, and in the meantime, you can take a look at the previous readings in this series. Hopefully you’ll find a new favorite author!
Then, I’ll be participating in my local convention, Bubonicon, and their virtual programming for 2021, on Friday, August 20th.
I’ll be moderating the panel “Mash-ups: the How and Why of Genre Blending” which will be airing live at 8pm mountain time on the Bubonicon Facebook page (it will also be posted to their YouTube page as well). I’ll be joined by Melinda Snodgrass, Carrie Vaughn, Reese Hogan, and Marguerite Reed. It should be a fantastic conversation!
“MASH-UPS: THE HOW & WHY OF GENRE BLENDING — Readers, authors and curators sometimes struggle to classify a work. Is it fantasy? Science fiction? Paranormal? Maybe all of the above? Panelists discuss the benefits and tricks of genre blending.
I’ll also be recording a excerpt from John Lymington’s Froomb! along with a number of other Bubonicon guests. It should be a blast (and a blast from the 1965 past)!
So keep your eyes peeled on the Bubonicon website for that and other events that weekend!
