My Virtual August

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.

Now Virtual!

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!

Bubonicon 2020 Recap!

This past weekend was the very first virtual Bubonicon, and I was thrilled to take part in two panels.

First up, I had the pleasure of moderating the Writing 101 panel with Bubonicon Guest of Honor Keith R.A. DeCandido and SF/F luminaries Susan R. Matthews, Walter Jon Williams, Connie Willis. It was a great conversation about how to get started writing your story idea:

 

I also got to participate in the Mythology and Gods in Fiction panel moderated by Rebecca Roanhorse alongside Reese Hogan and Bubonicon Guests Keith R.A. DeCandido and Chaz Kemp. It was a really enjoyable discussion:

The rest of the day of panels can be found on the convention’s YouTube page.

And it all goes down this Saturday:  – .

You’ll be able to follow along via the Bubonicon website with links to panels on Facebook and YouTube. Day of, there will be information how to attend the live sessions with signup/passwords on the Bubonicon website if you want to be able to ask the panelists questions. Everything is free of charge, and the panels will be available online after the event as well if you don’t want to attend live.

I’ve already recorded a Writing 101 panel where I moderated Connie Willis, Walter Jon Williams, Keith R.A. DeCandido, and Susan R. Matthews, and it was a great discussion on how to get started writing your story idea.

This Saturday at 12:30pm, I’ll be participating in a live session with Rebecca Roanhorse, Reese Hogan, Keith R.A. Decandido, and Chaz Kemp where we’ll be talking Gods and Mythology.

It sounds like the rest of the panels will be announced the day of, so be sure to keep an eye on the Bubonicon website. Hope to “see” you there!
