I’ll be attending Readercon in Burlington, MA from July 11-14, 2013. While I’m not officially a program participant, I will be participating in an official program item, because I’m sneaky that way.

4:00 PM NH Clockwork Phoenix 4 Group Reading. Mike Allen, A.C. Wise, C.S.E. Cooney, Gemma Files, Nicole Kornher-Stace, Barbara Krasnoff, Shira Lipkin, Yves Meynard, Ken Schneyer. All of the critically acclaimed Clockwork Phoenix anthologies have officially debuted at Readercon since the series began in 2008. That bond deepened when editor and publisher Mike Allen launched the Kickstarter campaign for Clockwork Phoenix 4 at Readercon 23. The campaign was a smashing success, and the latest lineup of boundary-pushing, unclassifiable stories has been bought and paid for. At this official reading, the new anthology’s authors will share samples from their stories with everyone who helped make this book reality.
I’ll be reading from Lesser Creek: A Love Story, a Ghost Story, and, as you can see, sharing reading space with some truly fabulous authors. Even if you stick your fingers in your ears during my portion of the reading, you should still come to the event and listen to all of them.
Beyond that, I’ll be spending the weekend attending panels, attending readings, and perusing the dealers’ room, trying and failing to resist the urge to buy all the shiny things. I’ve even heard rumors there may be a Clockwork Phoenix launch party as well, and if so, I’ll be there! Oh, and I believe it is also customary at these events to at least make a polite appearance at the bar? Hope to see you there!
