This is a quick note that if you were hoping to see me at Octocon in early October, I’ve had to pull out as I’m getting surgery the day before and will still be in hospital. Hopefully I’ll be able to be involved another time! I’m still on for my event on September 26th at WOWCON.

Bookstores are closed, so I can’t… Read More
