Heads up: I’m about to embark upon a surprisingly aggressive (for my income, anyway) convention season this year. The third Empty Cradle book is just a few chapters from being a complete first draft, so it’s a good time to go out and make some new friends with the existing story. My 2016 con season kicks off later this week with MystiCon in Roanoke, VA, where I’ll be plugging along happily in the shadow of George R.R. Martin and RS Belcher. If you’re prowling the halls of the Holiday Inn Tanglewood and spot what appears to be a tiny post-apocalyptic trader’s booth, though, please stop by and say hello! As always, I’ll write you a one-sentence story, in between finishing up Holly’s book.
