It’s a giant mass booksigning that the SFWA hosts every year during the Nebula Awards Weekend, wherever that happens to be. This year it’s: Friday, May…

Genre Chick Interview: Howard A. Jones

I’m not quite sure at what point I fell in love with Howard A. Jones’s novel The Desert of Souls–I could open the book to find out, but then I’d get stuck reading it all the way to the end again, and my schedule will not allow it! Suffice it to say, it was somewhere in the first two…

Genre Chick Interview: Gareth L. Powell

While today’s Month of Writers victim and I have never met in person (at least…I don’t *think* we’ve ever met in person, and if we have, then Gareth is free to blatantly trip me the next time he sees me), he and I still seem to swap a lot of chat on Twitter in the wee hours of the…

May’s Month of Writers continues — today’s victim of my little interview-questionnaire is SF author Tony Frazier.

Back on “Take Your Princesses-in-Training to Work” Day, Ariell and Kassidy helped me create a great questionnaire that I could send out to the ever-growing list of authors on my to-interview-list.

In the Company of Writers — Part One

I woke up my car this morning. It’s unique to those of is seasoned conventionistas, that grumbly sound your vehicle makes when you turn the key and politely ask it to dust off the cobwebs and rub the three-day sleep out of its gears. It’s a beautiful sound, full of shiny memories and the anticipation of seeing my own…
