See me at Readercon 19 this weekend!

Filed under: author appearance,Broad Universe,Mortal Touch,Readercon — admin @ 8:48 pm

I will be appearing at Readercon 19 this weekend, beginning Thursday evening, July 17th, through Sunday, July 20th, at the Boston Marriott Burlington in Burlington, Massachusetts. The Boston Marriott Burlington is on Route 128 northwest of Boston, off exit 33B (Route 3A). There are about 600 parking spots, with 300 in an overflow lot downhill, and an MBTA bus from Boston stops at the hotel. Go here for more details.

I’ll be participating in the Broad Universe Rapid Fire Reading at Readercon on Saturday, July 19th at 11:00 a.m., along with Broad Universe members Roxanne Bland, Justine Graykin, Elaine Isaak, Elissa Malcohn, Sarah Micklem, Trisha J. Wooldridge, Phoebe Wray and Jennifer Pelland (emcee). We’re all going to have to pick really juicy excerpts because we only have five minutes each–you definitely won’t be bored!

During the rest of the convention, I will be assisting with the Broad Universe table in the Readercon Bookshop, attending programming, and generally circulating. I’ll be offering a Readercon Special: buy a copy of Mortal Touch from the Broad Universe Table or from Withywindle Books, and you can request a free, five-minute Tarot reading! (The reading is optional, of course, the offer is only good until the end of the convention, and it is transferrable–I’ll give a reading to anyone you choose for each copy of Mortal Touch you buy.)

Readercon 19 is open to the general public on Thursday evening. I’ll be there, along with many great authors and serious readers of genre fiction. If you’re in the area, you’re welcome–see here for details.
