Gail's Cincinnati Appearance Cancelled

I am sorry to report, Gentle Reader, that I have had to pull out of the International Steampunk Symposium (formerly the Steampunk Empire Symposium) Apr. 24 ~ 26 in Cincinnati, OH.

I know some of you were really looking forward to seeing me there and that this is a big disappointment. I want to stress that this is nothing to do with the convention or the organizers. They have been a pleasure to work with and very nice. I think the event is likely to be stellar.

It's likely my name and image will continue to appear on press and around the internet connected to this event. I assure you I will NOT be in attendance.

I don't pull out of events lightly, so please respect that I have personal (mostly unpleasant) reasons for having had to do this. I hope some day to make it up to those of you in the Cincinnati area, and the convention itself.

In other news, I received my contract copies of both UK and USA Prudence. So I guess it is really going to happen.

The US copies are a small size hardback, the UK copies are the traditional trade size paperback (I think it's called B4).
