January 22: World-Building Discussion at Arlington Writers Group
I will be part of a 3-person panel that includes my friend, and popular fantasy author Michael J. Sullivan at the Arlington Writer’s Group in Arlington, Virginia. The discussion starts at 7pm. Also on the panel is another group member, Lori Sullivan (no relation to Michael). I think the panel is going to be run like a science fiction convention panel. There will be a moderator who will lead the discussion, and probably lots of Q&A afterward. If you’d like to attend, you can find the full details here.
January 27-28: Seminar on Going Paperless (Private)
I’ve been invited to a divinity university in Kentucky to give a seminar on going paperless to a class of graduating Ph.D. students. That day-long seminar will take place on Monday, January 27. The following day, I’ll be giving an abbreviated version to faculty at the university. Both of these are private events, but this is also a new experience for me and I’m very excited about it. I’ve been preparing for it for a while, and if it goes well (and I hope that it will) it could be the start of something new for me.
February 1: Daily Science Fiction Book Launch Party hosted by the Baltimore Science Fiction Society
Daily Science Fiction is having a book launch party for their second volume of short fiction, Rocket Dragons Ignite, Daily Science Fiction Year Two. Several authors whose work has been published in Daily Science Fiction will be attending and reading their stories, and I am one of those attending and reading. Things get started at 7pm at the Baltimore Science Fiction Society clubhouse.
I should probably consider putting together an appearances page, but I’ve got too much on my plate at the moment.
