I apologize for my usual sporadic blogging activity here on Slithers. April was a very busy month for me as I worked on some exciting projects, and took some personal spring cleaning/family time as well.
Exciting things are happening this summer.
I’ve decided to attend CONduit, a small sci-fi/fantasy convention taking place in Salt Lake City later this month (May 22-24) at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel. I will be there Saturday and Sunday. I may or may not be on panels (I requested very late to be on panels, so we’ll see what happens). I may or may not be selling books (most likely not, but I’ll bring a stash just in case I find some generous friends to bribe into sharing their table space). I will definitely be there to network and have fun.
On June 27th, my short story “Curio Cay” will be published in Xchyler’s forthcoming steampunk Anthology Steel and Bone. In “Curio Cay,” The future of humanity rests in the hands of three time-traveling scientists battling biomechanical creatures in the Jurassic past. If you like steampunk, biomechanical dinosaurs, or H.G. Wells, be sure to add Steel and Bone to your to-read list on Goodreads. When we are ready for release, there will also be a blog tour and an online release party on Facebook. Check this space and my FB page for more details as the time draws near.
July 17-18 is the Salt City Steamfest. Xchyler Publishing will have a booth, and, with any luck, I will be on panels there as well.
I will be attending Salt Lake Comic Con September 24-26. I have requested to be on panels. Booth selling of books has yet to be determined.
Guys, I’m really excited to kick off the summer. If you come to any of these events, do find me and say hi!
