Bizarro Con

Here we are, on the eve of my great adventure to Portland and Bizarro Con. I'm going down a day early--hopefully I'll be able to make myself useful somehow. I'm pretty excited. I'll be getting to see some amazing peeps--and make new friends to boot. Always a good thing.

Should be a lot of fun. I'll be doing at least one panel that I know of, judging a reading contest, attending an awards ceremony (two of my books are nominated) and drinking, drinking and--oh yeah--drinking. I also intend to pick up some new books, because you just can never have too many bizarro books in your library.

Other than that, I finished my novella SWARM OF FLYING EYEBALLS and with any luck that'll be seeing the light of day in the nearish future of 2009. Nick sent me a possible cover for it and I nearly fell out of my chair. It is THAT fucking awesome! I can't wait for everyone to see it.

Now I just have to decide which project to tackle next. I have a bunch of things in various stages of completion, so I should probably work on one of those. We shall see...

Currently reading The Tormenteds by Andersen Prunty (great stuff!) and just started Widdershins by Charles de Lint. Listening to a good bit of metal lately, as I tend to do in the winter for whatever reason.

Now, I think I'll go drink some coffee and fiddle with words until it's time for Fringe. Until next time...
