Fall Updates

I noticed that I’m getting new readers to this blog, so thought I do a quick update of things I’m doing right now. Think of this as sort of a newsletter type of thingie.

This Saturday, I’ll have a virtual booth at VirtuousCon, an online happening from 1pm to 4pm EST (12pm to 3pm for Central folk). It’s set up just like a con with tables you can visit, just like in real life. Most likely I’ll be hanging out, but I also plan to do a short reading around 2:45pm EST (1:45pm CST). Haven’t decided on what I’ll read yet, but I love to have people to stop by (virtually) and say hi! Registration is free! Sign up for your free registration.

October 16 – 18, I’ll be attending FIYAHCON. No panels or offices hours for me this time around, but I’ll be hanging about whatever social media venues they’ll have open. I’ll also be attending the World Fantasy Virtual Convention October 29 through November 1. Again, no panels or kaffeklatches, but you can find me in whatever discussion rooms they’ll have. UPDATE: After reading the open letter to the WFC concom from Miyuki Jane Pinckard and some discussion with other folks, I have decided to not attend WFC.

Why am I mostly low key this month? Mainly because my time nowadays is taken up by a SUPER SECRET PROJECT I’m working on, but can’t discuss yet. 😁 This is the first time I’m participating in one of these projects, but I promise to give more details when I’m allowed to do so. No, it’s not the novel. Last month, I finished the agent edits to my novel. Hopefully, that would be enough to start the submission process.

Finally, there’s a Kickstarter for a new anthology edited by Maurice Broaddus called In This Moment: Global Justice Anthology. It’s going to have stories, expressions and poetry of protest and resilience from writers such as Linda Addison, Khaalidah Muhammad-Ali, Brandon O’Brien, Zig Zag Claybourne, Cat Rambo, Toiya Kristen Finley, and hey, Yours Truly. There’s also going to be a open submissions period if the book gets funded. So go check out the Kickstarter and order a book today!
