Last month I was fortunate enough to get to present at a couple of different Cons–Spec Fic South East in Orlando and Necronomicon in Tampa. While I’ve done a number of presentations at libraries and writing groups around town, this was my first time on programming at a Con. I was surprised by how comfortable I felt, and I had a terrific time. I very much look forward to doing it again!
While I was an Necronomicon, I had the good fortune to be interviewed by G.W. Pomichter for his “Hangin’ With . . .” web series. We talked about short stories in general and my weird corner of genre, and I plugged some of my short stories, most notably “Cupid and Psyche . . . ” We had some good laughs over how ridiculously long that title is. (I do feel like pointing out that I don’t only write short stories. You sell a few shorts and suddenly people think that’s all you do!)
Anyway, you can watch the interview here:
In other news, I sold another story and it was published! Already! My short story, “The Flood” (short title this time!) is in the November issue of Grantville Gazette. I thought each issue was free-to-read the month when it came out, but alas, that’s no longer the case. If you’re a subscriber, you can read it here; if you want to buy the individual issue, the cheapest place to do so appears to be here.
