Damn it Jim! I'm an author!
This is just a quick post to let you know what's going on in my authorial life.
To start with, two upcoming events:
Marcon May 6-8, 2016 in Columbus, Ohio
I'll be speaking on panels and doing a signing and reading. I don't know why the programming isn't up on their website yet… This is my schedule:
BEA (Book Expo America) May 11-13 in Chicago, Illinois
I'll be floating in and out of this one because it's running concurrently with another con the same weekend (that I'm also attending). Not sure yet about the mega book signing. I'm having some trouble with book distribution at the moment. I'm not sure if my books will make it there on time. I'm not really going to be there in any official capacity, just networking. But if you're going to be there, get in touch. I might do a meetup.
SFWA Nebula Conference (Science Fiction Writers of America) May 12-15 Chicago, Illinois
This is a con for authors, mostly. For learning and networking and important stuff like that. The Nebula Awards will be announced at this gig. Since I went to the Hugos last year, I thought I'd give this a whirl. In addition, this conference traditionally holds a mass author signing every year. And there are some big names on this list. I'm hopeful that my paperback supply issues will be solved by this point and I'll be able to join in too. Here's the list of authors attending (you might want to sit down--there are some pretty big names on this list!):
In other news, there has been a resurgence in interest in Fluency after a week-long 99 cent sale which just concluded. Sales are up overall and both books are ranking well. Here are a few screenshots from my warm-fuzzy file in case you missed my shameless boasts on Twitter:
Lest you think I'm getting a swelled head, I did receive THIS review this week:
Well, some people like my writing anyway. I got two great interviews this week. If you didn't see them, check them out:
On the ALLi site (Alliance for Independent Authors) I was asked to Share the Secrets of My Success as an independent author.
And on Lawrence M Shoen's Eating Authors website I described my most memorable meal.

I just finished reading Remanence. Fluency is the first Sci Fi book I've read in 25+ years. I was a big Anne McAffrey fan and the synopsis on Fluency piqued my interest for the first time in years. And I'm glad. It was a fun read. When I finished it, I immediately got Remanence and enjoyed that just as much. I really liked the way technologies and aliens were presented with no "magic" phasers. It all seemed plausible and made for a great escape. I'm looking forward to the 3rd installment of this series.
