Orycon ahead

November's been a whirlwind of a month. Time Twist was released at World Fantasy, then we had the official launch party in Portland, Oregon. Now I'm about to leave for Orycon, to give my first reading from Time Twist, and to take part on a few panels. Please come and say hello... here is my schedule:

Friday 4:00pm -- 5:00pm -- Pitch it to Me
Why a cover letter? Why a synopsis? How does that compare to an outline? What's a query? What if I'm confronted with an editor face to face who asks what I'm working on? Learn how to pitch that winning novel so it gets a fair chance.

Friday 6:00pm -- 6:30pm -- Reading from Time Twist

Saturday 5:00pm -- 6:00pm -- How to Find an Agent
How to get an agent that works for you, if you really need one, and some of the things to avoid when looking for one.

Saturday 8:00pm -- 10:00pm -- Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Sunday 1:00pm -- 3:00pm -- Improv Writing
Everyone starts the first couple of lines of a story and then passes the pad clockwise. We'll continue each other's stories for about a page and then read them out loud to each other. Not specifically for writers, all welcome.

Then I'll be at Cedar Hills Crossing Powell's at 4:00pm. :-)

Here's a photo from World Fantasy in San Jose with Brian Hades of Edge Publishing.

And here's a short video of the launch party in the Elephant's in Portland.
