Troubadour

I took a break from killing myself over prep for the next book(s) in the Allies and Enemies series (as well as a billion other projects to have a thought-provoking interview with Kirk at Troubadour Magazine.

Recap: DragonCon 2018

DragonCon 2018 – Military SF DragonCon is over. We must return to our normal lives. For some of us that means re-joining the muggle world and putting aside our alter-egos. I count myself among that number. (Though if the Fates are kind, it might not always be the way for me.) I was fortunate to be tapped for four panels this year. The last of which I was honored/challenged with being in the only female in a group of military sci-fi luminaries (Jack Campbell, Marc Alan Edelheit, Doug Dandridge, John D. Ringo, David Weber — moderated by Baen’s David Afsharirad)....

Countdown to DragonCon

This week I’ll be joining about 90,000 of similarly minded folk for one of the East coast’s largest fan-run convention– DragonCon, baby!  It runs from 8/30 to 9/3. If you’ve never heard of it, you can check out the details here.  Look for me in the crowd. (I’m the one cosplaying as “Mid-List Author”.) Be sure to say hello.

Do You DragonCon? Join me on these panels.

Guess what? I’m guessing that as a visitor to my website that you might already be aware that I had the great honor to be a Dragon Award Finalist in 2016 and 2017 at DragonCon. While regrettably that did not happen this year, I did manage to snag a spot on some very intriguing panels this year. (Let’s hope I stop fan-girling long enough to add some thoughtful commentary.) So, if you’re at DragonCon this year, you should check them out.

My Interview on the Rocking Self-Publishing Podcast

Ever wondered just how much of a spaz I am in real life? Wonder no more! Listen to me tragically mix metaphors and mispronounce words on the Rocking Self- Publishing Podcast, hosted by the very charming Simon Whistler.

Keeping it real

Recently, I was interviewed for the Rocking Self-Publishing podcast by the charming Simon Whistler. (The podcast should air on 3/30. I say should because I’d like to give Simon an easy out in case he realizes what a spaz I am.) This was a fantastic experience for me. Not only was it lots of fun chatting with Simon, but he asked some excellent questions. During the interview, I had the chance to discuss my personal philosophies on being an indie-author and ran through my Top 5 Elements of Middling Success or How to Fail Upwards. (I’m still working on the...
