Events and Appearances
May 23-25, Phoenix Comicon
Details to come on this too as far as appearances and such, but dudes: Brandon Sanderson. Terry Brooks. Cherie Priest. Timothy Zahn. Geektastic authors!!! And plus Jewel Staite (Kaylee from Firefly) will be there so I will squee briefly before I die. You should go. It’s a great con, lots of cosplay and lots of the same stuff you’d see at San Diego Comic Con or NYCC, just without the cost and the unholy crush of people. You can move around. It’s not a tiny con…it’s 35K or more. But it’s not stupidly huge either. It’s juuuuust right.

July 18-21, San Diego Comic Con
I’ll be there! Details to come!
July 27, Houston!
I’ll be signing CARNIEPUNK with Jaye Wells, Nicole Peeler, and Mark Henry at Murder by the Book in Houston, Texas, at 4:30! I’ll sign other stuff too, of course, and so will the other authors—they all have wonderful UF series—but we are excited about this anthology of dark carnival tales, and there will be swag there too from other authors in the anthology. Please come see us if you can!
July 30, joint appearance with new Sci-Fi genius
This is really the launch of THE DARWIN ELEVATOR by Jason M. Hough, but Jason is cool and letting me hang out with him. You don’t know Jason yet, but you will. I haven’t been this jazzed about sci-fi in yeeeeeeears. So this is at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego at 7 pm, 7051 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, Suite #302, San Diego, 92111. All you peeps who can’t make it to Comic Con, I hope to see you there!
August 29-September 2, WorldCon in San Antonio!
Sweet Holy Deity of Your Choosing, this is one hell of a shindig. Very excited to meet Chuck Wendig and Stephen Blackmoore and hang out with my homies Jaye Wells, Nicole Peeler, and ye gods I know not who else, but it’s usually a Brave O’erhanging Firmament Fretted with Gold and Fire and Authors, and the booze flows like booze will in the presence of writers. If you’d like to go, it’s also called LoneStarCon3. Should be lots and lots of authors there you’ve always wanted to meet!
