Clockwork WorldCon

Happy Hump Day! I'm home! I'm home! For, um, a whole two weeks! But more on that a little bit later. Hope everyone had a great week and weekend and that this week's treating you well, too.

As you know, I was the Last Minute Local Guest of Honor at CopperCon Revolution, and the con was really fun. Got to spend much time with authors Marsheila Rockwell, T.L. Smith, Sharon Skinner, T.M. Williams, Michelle Welch, Jacqueline Lichtenberg, and, most thrillingly, our Author Guest of Honor, L.E. Modesitt, Jr., who is brilliant, witty, charming, and just plain nice, as well as being an amazing writer.

Also got to see lots of cool Members of the Alien Collective in Very Good Standing, including (but not limited to) Wyked, Hal, Dee, Travel Poof & Poofsy, Adrian, and Linda. So a good time was had by all.

Speaking of good times and having them -- do you live in Texas, near or nearish to San Antonio? Are you going to World Science Fiction Con over Labor Day Weekend? If you answered 'yes' or are thinking of attending, I'm going to be there (officially confirmed and 100% booked yesterday). So, come see the me at my first ever WorldCon! I'll be on panels, doing signings, and being a part of one of the walking tours, so lots of chances to hang out!

Speaking of chances, you're running out of time to get in on the Clockwork Universe: Steampunk vs. Aliens anthology that will feature my first ever Alien series short story. In addition to every backer now receiving lots of stretch goal goodies, including a free ecopy of A Cup of Joe by Anita Ensal (yes, that's moi), if we hit $15K, every backer will ALSO receive a free ecopy of Bradley P. Beaulieu's The Winds of Khalakovo, the first book in his The Lays of Anuskaya trilogy. So, if you haven't funded this Kickstarter yet, now's the time -- there's less than 40 HOURS left to go!

After trotting over and becoming a part of the Clockwork Universe, head over to Between Dreams and Reality and see what they thought of Touched by an Alien. And, if you read French, you can see what they thought in their native tongue. Then see what Autograph Hound's Blah Blah Blog thought of meeting me at SDCC.

That's it for today, but as always, more's on the way. So enjoy the downward slide towards the weekend and let's be readers out there. Peace out my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!
