I survived the family reunion. In fact, I had a really good time. Surprising, since my family and I are diametrically opposed politically. However, everyone was on their best behavior. My mom and my sister-in-law even taught me how to crochet. I’m in love and I’ve discovered some things about crocheting that I’m noodling over as an author. More on this in a later post.
In the meantime, I’m about to drive down to SF for Convolution. I have a table there with Apocalypse Ink Productions and a small set of panels. If you are there, come say hello. No shyness around me. I’m there for my readers and authors.
Here’s my convention schedule:

Tech Writing for the Creative Author
Many SF/F authors often double as tech writers to help pay their bills. Are the two occupations really compatible? Do you want to learn what it takes to be a tech writer in the high tech industry? And how do you come home from a hard day of tech writing to actually allowing your muse to run free and write creatively? Come talk to our panelists of tech writers with more than 40 years of experience in the tech writing field.
