Cobwebs & Sundry

I can't believe it's been almost two years since I've posted anything on LJ.

Sadly, while I seem incapable of this belief, the reality of the date of my last post is staring me in the face, and I must concede that the absence that feels slightly cobwebby and distant has been a long one.

In this time, I have done not perhaps as much of note as I would like; I survived book trauma and turned in the first volume (act surprised) of HOUSE WAR; I am almost finished the third volume of the series I am writing for Luna; I spoke to Stephe Pagel and apparently he still wants to publish the short story collection which was mentioned here so very long ago.

I am busy going through email which was also sadly neglected, and have once again polished my grovelling skills to a burnished, lovely hue. But I've been playing catch-up in a big way, and even in two years, everything about publishing seems to have shifted some. I've been musing on that.

My hermit-like existence is about to end in Austin, TX, although for lack of hotel space on Thursday, I'll be arriving Friday afternoon.

Oh, and I cannot remember how to make any LJ tags at all >.<. Tanya? Thomas gave me minor heck for failing to mention that the filming of the blood books is underway. I -did- point out that he could easily have read this for himself, but on the whole, think the blame for the lack of information probably resides on my shoulders.

And now, I'm off for a glut of LJ reading...

ETA: I love you guys -- thank you for the warm homecoming.

Austin?!? Friday?!?!?
Since last we spoke, I've moved to Austin. Where will you be if it's a speaking/reading visit? If it's a private one, nevermind.

Writing is good. More books are definitely good. And information on the industry is much appreciated.

Welcome back.

It's the World Fantasy Convention, which starts Thursday -- but I'm a very late addition, so I don't think there will be much in the way of programming for me. I'll be there through Sunday, though; I think my plane gets in at 3:00 in the afternoon (which was the earliest I could get in that wasn't a Thursday).

Thank you. I don't know that we'll be able to make it due to finances on our part (life of a grad student and all) but I appreciate the information. Enjoy yourself.

btw: user tags are *<* lj user="handle" *>*

*Remove asterix and spaces.

Re: Austin?!? Friday?!?!?
Umm before you get on a plane... are you going to this World Fantasy Convention? They say it starts Nov. 2nd... still a Thursday, just not tomorrow.

If google has failed me,and this is totally the wrong one, then nevermind.

You would be welcome to hang out with celledhor and I, but you probably don't want to travel this far just to be stuck with people you've never met.

Re: Austin?!? Friday?!?!?
Yes, that World Fantasy Convention, which -does- start November 2nd. And yes, of course, not this Friday either >.<. On the other hand, I do know where my passport is, and my head is still attached to my shoulders...

I have habitually gone for the Friday and Saturday of WFC, leaving on Sunday. This year, I had intended to go for the Thursday as well, but the hotel was booked full on Thursday, so I took it as a sign, and will go for Friday onward.

Re: Austin?!? Friday?!?!?
good stuff... I guess I miss-interpreted

It would suck to have bought the wrong tickets, it would suck more to show up in a far off city on the wrong weekend. Glad you didn't do either.

Re: Austin?!? Friday?!?!?
No, technically you didn't misintpret -- I botched it . pointed out in the bookstore that when I said Tuscon, I actually meant Austin, and I had to rush back to my inbox to check that I had, in fact, ordered the tickets for Austin, which I was by that point only 90% certain I had done.

And, I might as well add that the passport is actually at the passport office, or should be, on the 26th; I hadn't realized until I booked the plane ticket that my passport had expired...
