2008 World Science Fiction Convention (Denvention 3)

Originally posted HERE

I often get so busy that my blogs become a huge info dump of my month. This time, I’ll just blog about my week. I got back from the 2008 World Science Fiction Convention (Denvention 3) safe and sound. The WorldCon was much smaller than the last one I went to in LA, 2006, but it was still fun. The ConSuite was extremely large. Lots of food and people. I met agents, authors, publishers, etc. I got some great pictures with Robert Silverberg, Lois McMaster Bujold, Connie Willis, Gay and Joe Haldeman, Carol Berg and others. Click on the Author's links to view the picture. To see more WorldCon pictures go to the “Photos / Videos” of my website ( or to my MySpace page. I’ll probably post some of them here in the future.

On Friday, I spoke on a panel called “Publicity: Who's Job is it Anyway?” The panelists were Joy Ward, Roy Gray, Astrid Anderson Bear, Matthew Peterson, Ben Bova (who didn’t show up) and Pierce Watters. I’m including a video of the panel below. Enjoy!

WorldCon, Here I Come!

I'm just about to leave for the World Science Fiction Convention in Denver, Colorado, but I thought I'd post a blog about the press release and newsletters I just sent. If you're not on my newsletter group... you best hop on board! Here's the newsletter:

Here's the press release. Basically, I'm speaking at the WorldCon in room 506 on Friday at 4 PM about publicity with Ben Bova and some others. It should be fun!

I'm sort of bummed because I wasn't able to find a roommate for the WorldCon this year. That means I'll be paying full price for my hotel. Oh, well. I've been invited to a couple of parties already, so I'm excited.
