I Promise

CapClave is tomorrow. This time I promise to bring a camera. Whenever I go to cons, I always make that promise, but I rarely follow through. I think the last time I brought a camera to a con was a couple or three Balticons ago. When I come back from CapClave, I will post pictures.

I promise.

I also think I’ll start doing podcasts and posting them here. I’m doing two next year for Broad Universe, and I’ve already bought the mic. Personally, I think it’s a wonderful idea. Add some content besides my own rantings. Of course, reading from my works technically qualifies as rantings but we’ll just leave that minor point aside.

You, of course, will be the guinea pigs. But I promise not to post pictures of my paintings. I do reserve the right to change my mind if I come up with a good one.

Did I tell you I bought a couple of disco balls? No, the real thing. I’m going to hang them in my living room. One’s silver, the other gold. Saturday Night Fever, look out! Actually, the reason I bought them is because I wanted to be reminded of what Melera’s eyes look like. Hence the gold mirror ball.

Who’s Melera? She’s the alien star of my book, The Underground.

About that camera–better check the battery before I head out the door…

Capclave RFR…Wow

Capclave is coming up really soon, and the Broad’s RFR is on Saturday Oct. 17th from 1-2 pm. So far, there are like three folks signed up. Of course, more could sign up between now and Oct. 12th–the organizer’s drop dead date–but Mother, if there will only be three of us…that’s a lot of reading. Assuming the panel plans for an hour, given the minimal time it would take for introductions, the three of us might each end up with 20 minutes. Of course, we do want to leave time for Q&A, but still…

But not to fear, for I’m certainly up to the challenge. I’ve got two chapters, one from The Underground and the other from Jahannan’s Children that I’ll read. One or the other, that is–not both. They’re pretty clean as far as my writing goes, but if there are any little kids in the room, I’ll tone down the one or two curse words. Is PC still in?

You know, it’s just occurred to me that it’d be fun to learn some new curse words, huh? Make some up, even?

I’m game. How ’bout you?
