I'm going to Readercon. And I'm reading!
Along with 6 of my fellow Viable Paradise attendees, I will be reading at 11 a.m. on Sunday the 11th. I've chosen an excerpt from my recently-completed novel The Russian Witch (formerly Cossack's Witch, formerly the Not-a-Werewolf Book).
While this will not be my first reading, it will be my first in many years, and my first since I started selling my work again. I am petrified, of course; especially since I am not at all used to reading to an audience of sober people. I used to read a fair bit in university, and I got laughs and cheers, but those people were all hammered.
If you're going to be in Boston next weekend, please come--sober or not; see me blush, sputter and quaver my way through a bit of my work; and know that as I do, I'll be picturing you naked.
