Free Audio Short & Good News

snake-river-comic-con-banner-2-5x10

I always like going to conventions. I’ve been going for years and I have quite a line up for 2017 already on my appearances page. Usually I split a table with several authors to cut costs and do several panels in trade for a free ticket and some food. Today, for the first time, a convention offered to pay me! That’s a big step! There’s usually a hierarchy of guests at these things, so breaking into the next level is really exciting. So my new favorite convention is Snake River ComicCon in Pocatello!

If you are anywhere in the West, I recommend it. Especially since pre-registration tickets are just $35… so get them quick! The Space Balrogs are all heading to Idaho to run three game panels and have a lot of other fun.

If that’s not enough good news for one day, Immortal Works also published the audiobook of one of my short stories for Flash Fiction Friday! It’s short, just 7 minutes. They’ve been doing some amazing short stories every week for months. If you have iTunes, go to the store under podcasts and search for Immortal Works. Subscribe and download a bunch of great stories. You won’t regret it. If you don’t have iTunes, you can go to YouTube and subscribe there. If you just want this one, find it HERE on the IW website.

The Big Fandom Debates

Daniel Swenson hits a panel of high powered fans (Robert J. Defendi, R. A. Baxter, Nathan Croft, and yours truly) with some of the hardest questions to plague sci-fi fans for decades. It felt like a convention panel gone off the rails!

Also, Immortal Works just opened an imprint with a new logo! What do you think?
