Just one in the next two months. I am launching my second novel, BY YOUR SIDE, at Farpoint, a SF/Fantasy con in Timonium, MD. We have a great show lined up!

http://www.farpointcon.com

For the 20th anniversary convention, I am also the writer liaison, responsible for booking all of the writer guests and setting up their workshop and discussion panel schedules.

This year, the committee decided to double the number of usual writer guests and add a Friday night book fair where most of the writers will set up tables and sign books for an hour on Friday night. You can also catch many of the writers throughout the weekend at autograph tables and panels.

Aside from yours truly, some of the writers include Keith DeCandido, Michael Jan Friedman, Bob Greenberger, Aaron Rosenberg, Kelly Meding, Donna Galanti, Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Mike McPhail, Steven H. Wilson, Lance Woods, David Mack, Dave Galanter, and many more.
