Hello, all! It’s July, and that means it’s time for Readercon! I’ll be in Quincy, MA from Friday, July 12th to Sunday, July 14th. I’ll be spending most of my time in the Bookshop (a.k.a., the Dealers’ Room) selling my books and books by fellow members of Broad Universe. The lovely thing about buying books at the Broad Universe table is that every book there was written by an author present at the convention, so you can get your copy signed and chat with the author. If you’d like a sample of their work, I highly recommend attending the Rapid Fire Reading, at which the authors (including me!) take turns reading for just five minutes. It’s like literary tapas. If you come to Readercon, please stop by the table or one of the following events to say hello.
