Fall appearances

I've been making a list of my upcoming events - for some reason always one of my least favorite things in the world to do - I will put it off for ANY reason. I even procrastinated by doing my taxes, if you can believe that. Upside is now I have both my taxes AND my events list done.

Until I can get them more permanently up on my website, I'm stashing them here.

This is my idea of a reduced schedule for the fall. I know, scary. But most of the events are scheduled in clumps, so I can do blitz tours in a few days and then be done, and most are with other people.

Still, hoping to cut down a little more next year.

No Georgia? Let me know if you come to Atlanta. I'll treat ya to dinner--or at least cook. ;)

I know, I really have to get to Atlanta! Would love to do the town with you.

I guess I should have gone to DragonCon this year... but then I would've missed all the excitement of being evacuated from New Orleans!
