Life, the Universe, and ConFusion

Posted on Posted in From the Front Lines

This past weekend, I made the trek out to Detroit, MI to attend Confusion, a literary/fannish science fiction convention. This year’s theme: Life, the Universe, and Confusion, because Confusion celebrated its 42nd annual gathering to celebrate all things nerdy. The last several years, I’ve heard such great things about this convention and thanks to the […]

Dear Convention Organizers

Posted on Posted in Daily Rants

As I’m beginning my fifth year as an up-and-coming professional writer attending conventions, I’ve made a few observations. This post isn’t targeted at any one convention, but rather, it addresses something I’ve noticed about convention culture as a whole. Some cons are way, way better about this than others.

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in From the Front Lines

I didn’t do a 2015 wrap up, because on the whole, 2015 was not a stellar year for me. Yeah, it had some high points, really nice high points, but on the whole, not so much… Rather than look back, I’m going to focus on making 2016 a better year. This is the year I’m […]

Calling a Spade a Spade Part 2

Posted on Posted in Daily Rants

A couple of years ago, I wrote a blog post in response to a conversation I’d had with some friends regarding the terminology and categorization of people who commit despicable acts upon their fellow human beings. If you’d like to read that post, it’s titled: Calling a Spade a Spade. I don’t often get involved […]

Forward to Warrior Poet

Posted on Posted in Dead Weight

With each installment of Dead Weight, I’ve asked one of my professional pals to write a forward. These are some of my favorite bits of the whole project. This time around, I’m pleased and proud to have Frances Pauli leading us into the fourth tale of the Faerie War. If you haven’ taken a look at her Kingdoms Gone stories, […]
