The Updated Schedule

Here is an updated and corrected schedule for places I expect to be in the next few months.  I do hope to meet friends old and new, especially some old friends in the Portland area!  🙂  So here is the latest update.

Over the next few months, I’m very much looking forward to getting out of my basement office and seeing daylight.  And readers!  So here is a brief listing of where you might run into me.  For book signings, please be aware the times are tentative, and may be changed when we’re a bit closer.  So please do check back here or at for an update before you hop in your car.

October 23-25   is Steamcon!  This is the first venture of this Steam Punk convention.  It’s close to home for me, at the Marriott Hotel at Seatac. And Tim Powers is the guest of honor. I think I’ve weaseled my way onto a couple of panels on Friday. I always think that’s the best time to do panels, at the beginning of a con, because you start meeting new people right away.  I think you’ll have to take a chance on getting a membership at the door now but it’s a chance worth taking.
EDIT:  Actually, I may be taking part in a couple of the Friday panels early in the con!  I will confirm that when it is confirmed with me!

November 27-29 is Orycon, at the Doubletree at Lloyd center in Portland, Oregon.  Guest of Honor is Patricia Briggs!  I’m looking forward to coffee with old friends there, and meeting new friends.

January 15-17, 2010  is an old favorite con of mine, Rustycon!  James Blaylock is the Guest of Honor, and again we have a Steam Punk theme. Should be a good time.  Again, it’s not far from my home at the Mariott Hotel at Seatac. 

Then . . . .

January 26  EDIT:   7PM The Release of DRAGON KEEPER in the US!  The party is at Duane’s, sometimes known as University Bookstore in the Seattle University District. There will be balloons, hotdogs and clowns.  Okay, well, maybe not those things, but I’ll be there to read and sign books. Please note this has been edited to correct the time to 7PM

January 29  7PM Down to Oregon again, for a visit to Powell’s Books in Beaverton.  With their famous dancing beaver . . . okay, that’s another lie.  But I will be there, to read and sign and look for coffee with friends afterwards.  Please note this has been edited to the correct time of 7PM

January 30  2PM  Barnes and Noble on Black Lake Blvd. in Olympia Washington has invited me to come by and sign some books.

Feb. 6 Noon.  For the first time ever, I get to sign on Fort Lewis!  I’ll be at Building 528 on Pendleton Avenue.

Now, I’m also  starting a rumor that I’ll also be at Imaginales in Epinal France in 2011.  🙂  It’s our tenth anniversary, so I’m looking forward to getting back to my French hometown and see all my friends again!

  1. Hello there! A very dear friend of mine informed me that you were attending our lovely SteamCon and just about wet herself, knowing I’m one of the people hosting.

    I’ll mostly be found in the Gaming rooms and probably not much of anywhere else since that is my baby. If you do come that way, I’d love to meet you and maybe snap a pic for my friend if it isn’t too much of an imposition.

    If you’re up for a game, a friend of mine modded a Mouse Trap game. Plus we’ll have a few RPGs, some miniatures and plenty of board/card games.


  2. oh wow, I really hope that Epinal thing is going to happen — it’s close to my hometown, and I hope to have the chance to go to the Imaginales next year, or the year after that.

    I know it’s a long trip, but is there any chance of you being in Montreal one day?

  3. You should tour Canada, preferably with some stop in Saskatchewan. And, while you’re entertaining my fantasies in this comment, you should also have a free signed book on this tour for me as well 😛

    Good to see the tour dates though. I’m not in a lot of travel time and monies for travel right now but maybe that will change come January and, if it does, I’ll definetely try to get down to actually meet my favourite author ^_^

  4. I’m afraid the only travel I have scheduled right now is what I’ve posted above.

    I’d love to get out to the East Coast and actually spend some time there and look around. Do the tourist thing. Statue of Liberty and all!


  5. Hi Dani!

    I’ll try to wander through the games room a couple of times and look for you. Don’t hesitate to collar me if you see me walking around anywhere at the convention.

    I’m really looking forward to Steamcon!


  6. Faboo! I submitted all the information about what sorts of games we’re running; hopefully it will be on the website soon. I managed to get a bloke to run some free form storytelling RPGs, which sounds exciting.

  7. o/’ Somewhere over the rainbow . . . o/’

    Joking! Israel. No matter which direction you go, there’s still a continent in the middle. East? Hello Europe {and eastern America}. West? Hello Asia. 🙂


  8. Wish I could get to one of these, but for the time being I’m stuck in the Los Angeles area. Hopefully some time I’ll be able to make it to an event you’re at.

  9. In terms of cultural isolation, I might just as well have been.

    Really? Feel free not to answer, but I’m terribly nosy {though I do like the terms ‘interested’ or ‘incurably curious’ better}, so, where/when/why/how long? It’s hard to imagine people coming there for something short of extraordinary. That sounds really interesting.


  10. Kay’s an ET (Electronic Technician). There are information collecting sites there that need to be maintained, as in batteries changed, cleared of snow, etc.

    Cold doesn’t bother her. And I recall her telling me that for the first time in her life, No Pollen Allergies!!!


  11. Did I miss responding to this? Sorry!

    Epinal is almost a sure thing for me in 2011. I’d have returned in 2010, but it’s a year for weddings and graduations in my family, so I’ll be staying close to home instead.

    If you haven’t been to Imaginales, then you are in for a treat if you manage to come.

    Now, I’ve never been to Montreal. and it’s on my list of cities I’d like to see someday.

    Actually, I’d love to take the train across Canada, just pausing here and there to sightee. Someday.
