I am excited to announce that I am the featured Hometown Hero for Meta Boost Brooklyn. I’ll be appearing there wearing my day-job hat, representing Kings Games.
The Meta Boost program aims to help small businesses reach their audiences and recover from disruptions brought on by COVID-19.
You can join and receive free live training on November 16th. During this event, you’ll learn How to Master your mobile photo and video skills for the Holidays and Reels School.
Special guests include Nicola Mendelsohn, VP Global Business Group, Meta, Randy Peers, President and CEO, Brooklyn Chamber, yours truly, and Darlene, Meta. Meta experts will answer your questions submitted during registration and 3 winners will be awarded $500 in ad credits.
I’ll be participating in the all-virtual Fyrecon conference this weekend. On Friday I’ll be teaching an introductory class on editing anthologies, and on Saturday I will participate on a panel led by Martin Shoemaker, about defining sub-genes.
Please check out the conference and the event schedule here:
I’m going to be in Chicago this weekend for the 80th World Science Fiction Convention. I will endeavor to spend as much time as possible in the dealers room at the Arc Manor/Caezik table, so that’s a good place to look for me. I also have a number of program items, including a signing and a table talk (which is an opportunity to just come and chat with me!) Here is my program:
There are a couple of events coming up this week, one virtual and one in-person:
A conversation with Ken Liu – Virtual event hosted by An Unlikely Story Thursday, August 18, 7pm Eastern
I will be chatting with Ken about Speaking Bones, the final volume of his Dandelion Dynasty series of silkpunk fantasy, as well as about the upcoming AMC+ animated series Pantheon based on his short stories.
A signing, reading and panel at Barnes & Noble in Paramus, NJ I’ll be joined by fellow authors Randee Dawn and Brian Trent for this event, organized by the Science Fiction Association of Bergen County. Saturday, August 20 3pm-4:30pm
Most importantly, there will be a launch party celebrating the upcoming release of The Middling Affliction on Saturday! Come join us for food, drink, and giveaways, meet the publishing team at Arc Manor/Caezik, be among the first to buy a copy and if you do, you’ll be entered into an extra-special giveaway! What sort of rare and precious artifact might you win? Stop by the Caezik Press booth any time starting Friday afternoon to find out!
Time, Space, and Alternate Universes panel – 1:10pm
Reading – 1:50
Attendees will get to hear an excerpt from a brand-new Conradverse story; a world premiere!
The rest of the day I will share a table with Esther Friesner in the dealers room. Please feel free to stop by for free signatures, free candy, and free advice (that last one worth almost as much as you will have paid for it!) We will also both have books for sale, and maybe a gently-used kidney. But probably just books.
