“So Kelly, how was your weekend?”
Glad you requested!
Had the pleasure of spending the weekend at a small sci-fi con in Lebanon, TN known as ConFinement, organized by Michael Z. Williamson and Jessica Schlenker. Had a good time, participated in a number of panels, advised a number of outrageous tales, and autographed a bunch of books. The con was clearly a labor of affection for all involved; there was as a lot work pitched in by enthusiastic attendees as by con workers.
Regardless of its small measurement, there have been quite a few sci-fi luminaries in attendance. Moreover Mike, Toni Weisskopf was there doing an episode of the Baen Highway Present, together with William Weber, Richard F. Weyand, Amie Gibbons, Jonathan R. Osborne and a sizeable contingent of my Tribe, the North Texas Troublemakers.
Sadly, I arrived too late to take part within the vary journey hosted by Mad Mike Friday morning, however I’ll you’ll want to plan for that subsequent 12 months.
In different information, Area Cowboys by Raconteur Press (LawDog’s publishing home) was launched this week. It’s chock filled with tales of, nicely… house cowboys. You’ve acquired interstellar drovers, interplanetary Texas Rangers pursuing desperadoes who’ve fled to different planets, and all the things else you possibly can think about.
I don’t seem on this one, however you can purchase and skim for the various wonderful tales by the opposite authors featured. My contribution would be the anchor story within the sequel,
Gangsters of Love Maurice Area Cowboys II: Electrical Rodeo, launch date March 10. My story can be the pompatus of affection entitled “Fistful of Credit.”
My subsequent look can be on the World Steampunk Exposition and Makers Honest in Lafayette, LA on March 10-12, 2023. After that, I’ll be showing at Fantasci in Durham, NC on March 23-26.
