World Fantasy this weekend

I’m heading out in the morning (at an hour I don’t normally see while conscious unless I’ve stayed up all night) for San Jose to meet up with friends at World Fantasy this weekend. Those of you who are going as well, I look forward to seeing you there! I’ll have tons of Tu Publishing bookmarks with me (about 300, I think!) so if you want one, or several to hand out to friends — or even if you don’t want one—you’ll probably get one.

I’m not sure what kind of internet connection I’ll have over the weekend, so I’ll probably be going relatively dark on Twitter and here (not that I post overmuch here, but you get the idea). I have internet access on my phone, but I’m hoping to be busy connecting with people in person, as you can imagine! It’s my first World Fantasy, and I’m looking forward to meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends.

I’m finishing up short critiques this week and next–if you don’t hear from me by next Friday, please drop me an email and be sure that it wasn’t overlooked. From now on, I’ll be even more choosy when it comes to taking on critiques—not because I don’t want to work with you guys, but because I’ve been so swamped for the past two months and I don’t want to make anyone wait too long. Between the day job and starting a small press, that’s been quite a load on my plate, and I’m grateful to all of you who have waited so patiently for me to get to your piece.
