So I’m headed to the Authors After Dark con in August this year – here’s a little more info about it if you guys want to come hang out.  🙂 (As an aside, there’s a good chance that Kelly Meding and I will be setting up an impromptu bar game of Cards Against Humanity. Here’s your chance to be Card Czar, yo!) OOO Authors After Dark is coming QUICKLY and OMG this year is going to be INSANE!

Plus, I sometimes find myself wondering where my books really fit – I don’t really write romance and I don’t generally have HEAs. (Well. Except maybe this last one. In a manner of speaking. Ahem. There will hopefully be some happy readers this time around, yes?) So, weird place. Too much romance for the hard core fantasy readers…not enough for the romance readers. But it is what it is, so I’m not going to fret about it too much. I just thought I’d maybe take a spin through some different cons this year, since I’ve only ever really attended RT… Read more
