World Fantasy Convention 2018

I’m planning on attending WFC in Baltimore this year.  I’m super excited for it! This is my second time going to World Fantasy, but the first time I’m on programing. I’ll be on a panel on Sunday and have a reading Friday night.

Here’s my schedule:

Author Reading – Friday, 10/2 at 10:30 pm

Not sure what’ll I’ll be reading yet, but I’m planning on bring homemade cookies for the audience.

Best Meals Ever Written – Sunday, 11/4 at 11:00am

“A discussion of feasts and meals and what makes them
great is it a tragic ending like the Red Wedding or a highly
detailed description of the food so fans can replicate the
cuisine, or something in between.”

The panelists are Scott Edelman, Aliette de Bodard, S. M. Stirling, S. A Chakraborty, A. T.
Greenblatt

As always, if you’re attending the convention and you spot me, please feel free to come say hello.

Parsec Award Nomination!

Earlier this year, “A Non-Hero’s Guide to the Road of Monster” was narrated and podcasted by Podcastle. Earlier this week, I found out this episode has been nominated for the Parsec Award in the category of Best Speculative Fiction: Short Form!

The Parsec Award was first started in 2006 to honor Speculative Fiction Podcasting. Every year fans submit their nominations and from them, a steering committee chooses the finalists. Then, a panel of judges chooses the winner.

I’m so excited that this story has been nominated! Special thanks to Khaalidah Muhammed-Ali and Jen R. Albert, the editors of Podcastle and the narrator, Mike Flinchum.

It’s uncertain when winners will be announced, but I’ll keep you posted! (The pun, of course, is intended.)
