I’ll also be stationed at the SFWA table on Sunday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., so that’s a great time to stop by for a chat!
I’m particularly psyched and a little bit terrified about the Book Club discussion of Fair Coin on Saturday. As for my reading later that day, I’m not sure what I will share, but it may be my most recent short story, “The Grimoire Girls,” which is forthcoming in the anthology Schoolbooks and Sorcery, edited by Michael M. Jones.
Also, although I will not have a dedicated time slot for signings, I’m happy to sign my books whenever. If you still need to pick up a copy of Fair Coin or Quantum Coin, I believe The Missing Volume will have them for sale at their booth; I’ll post updates on Twitter, which is probably the best way to stalk me while I’m at the convention.
(On a dorky side note, I’m getting a kick out of being listed alphabetically near Eve Myles in the Dragon Con program book and on the website. I hope I’ll get to meet her!)
