4:30pm to 5:00pmHotel Bar Fireside
didn't give me a signing time so I'll be hanging out by the bar,
talking to myself. If any of my lovely readers would care to join me,
I'll be happy to talk to them instead, and sign books of course. If

you can see I have a very busy Saturday with almost no free time
(particularly with my chronic food consumption habit). I apologize now
if I can't linger and chat. I also probably won't make any parties on
Saturday night since that last panel abuts my bedtime.SundayPanel: Writing Your First Novel

Tickets required ahead of time, and website says it's already sold out.
me, I only yesterday realized that it was a steampunk convention. For
some reason I thought is was a regular SF/F convention and my glance
over my programming items did not illuminate matters to the contrary.
only excuse must be that I have been in a writing fog. However, it does
mean that I have to repack. I can’t travel carry on only for steampunk.
I will have to check luggage, which is always a pain. Must dash off to
better plan the whole endeavor. Meep!

Book News:Weirdmage’s Reviews
“A seamless blend of Steampunk, humour, and Victorian boarding school
drama -with a good dollop of action, mystery, and adventure. Definitely a
recommended read for those who like their Steampunk to have a sense of
humour, and anyone who likes a good rollicking story.”Quote of the Day:
“Intercalary Day. That day which, every leap year, is added to the month of February.”
~ Mangnall’s Questions, 1830
