Not much news on my own front, but big rounds of Kudos to several of my friends. Firstly, to Maurice Broaddus who is currently the featured author on Apex Online. Go read what the Sinister Minister has to say about pretty much everything.
Also – a big congratulations to Simon Wood, whose short story “My Father’s Secret” won the Anthony award for best short story at this year’s Bouchercon (the World Mystery Convention). Way to go, Simon. We’re proud of you.
Keeping up with Appearances:
The last chance to see me in 2007 is fast approaching. World Fantasy in Saratoga Springs, NY runs from November 1 through 4, and I will be in attendance. More importantly, you can do more than see me – you can actually hear me read. I will be reading “Return, My Heart, to the Sea” on Thursday, November 1st, at 5pm. I’ll be in Broadway 1, so be certain to stop in. (And bring your friends!)
As a bookend, the incredibly talented Melinda Thielbar will be reading her story – “Party at the End of the World” on the Sunday of the convention at 10am. If you’re there you’ll definitely want to catch her, she never disappoints.
