Dragon*Con 2010

I’M OFF IN THE MORNING to drive down to Atlanta for Dragon*Con 2010.  If you’re going to this phenomenal SF/F/H fan convention, I hope you’ll come by one of my panels or my autographing session and say hi!

I have to admit it’s with somewhat mixed emotions that I pack up to go this time around though. Two years ago, in 2008, I did my very first signing to promote the mass market release of Covenant from Leisure Books (at a Borders by Vanderbilt U. in Nashville) on my way down to Dragon*Con.

This year, I should be going down to triumphantly debut Siren, my fourth novel from Leisure, which just came out a month ago. However… at the moment, due to a number of factors, from distributors collapsing , the poor economy, the e-book revolution… Leisure finds itself on the brink. This means that Siren is in fact the company’s last mass market release, and a poorly distributed one at that.

Where do we go from here?  is the question I’m faced with this month as an author. Nevertheless… tomorrow, I drive to Dragon*Con.

The future is so bright, I have to wear shades….
