At the end of May, I’m going to Balticon! It’s been a few years since I’ve been in Baltimore, and it will be wonderful to get back and see so many friends and collaborators. If you’re going to be in the area, consider stopping by for a day and seeing all of the marvelous creators, panels, costumes, and merchandise!
My schedule for this year is light, but that’s ideal for meeting up with old friends and new collaborators! Plus, I’ll have some new badge ribbons to hand out, and maybe some promo codes for 2019 audiobooks.
