Conference on Canadian Speculative Arts and Literature

It’s a glorious day here in Canada’s adorable capital city.  The air is clean, the sun is out, the leaves are set to turn into autumnal confetti. It’s with great pleasure that I look forward to appearing this weekend at Ottawa’s Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature, a brisk walk from Timberhouse. I’ll be discussing Myths You’ve Never Heard Of. I’ll be reading a part in a play by local writer Hayden Trenholm. I’ll be at the launch for 49th Parallels, an anthology that explores potential Canadian alternative realities (and includes my story “As Mistress Wishes“). I’ll be giving blue pencil crits and kicking around and shooting the shit and generally having a decent time. If you’re nearby, I hope you’ll come say hello.

Creative Ink

I’ve been invited to be at Creative Ink Festival this weekend in glorious Vancouver, BC. So happy to be supporting two wonderful women Guests of Honour: Galen Dara as artist GOH and Carrie Vaughn as Author Supreme. I shared a table of contents with Carrie (Superstories!) years after meeting her one fantastic word-crammed weekend at the Oregon Writers Colony house on the majestic Oregon coast.

geek-love-coverGalen’s rise has been meteoric these last few years, and I’m proud to be in not one but two anthologies sporting Galen Dara covers. Superduper surprise bonus: Galen illustrated two of my personal favourites of my own stories. Coincidence? Hmmm…fish
