Norwescon has been one of the highlights of my year for the last several years now, and it turns out I get to be an attending pro on panels yet again this year! If you’re in the Seattle area over the weekend of April 18-21, you should absolutely come check out the show. As the site will tell you, it’s at the big Doubletree Hilton right across from the airport in SeaTac. A whole lot of great authors and artists will be there. Of all the “literary” cons I’ve been to, Norwescon is always the best.
If you’re attending, my panel schedule for this year is:

In other updates: Wandering Monsters 2 is real close to being done. I may have it out and into the wild within the next month or so. Good Intentions 4 is still in progress, but more than halfway done. Also, my Patreon has been a bigger success than I imagined! Thank you so much to everyone who jumped on as a patron! I’m trying to focus my work this month on wrapping up Wandering Monsters 2 so I’m not likely to get another full short story in this time, but I’ll definitely drop another sneak-peek in at the middle of the month, and more content will continue to roll in. I’m incredibly grateful!
I was sad to miss you last year. I was catching up on your blog, literally, on my way home! Looking forward to the Social Comentery Panel!
