International Steampunk Symposium Schedule (and more!)

Next weekend will find me at the International Steampunk Symposium! I haven’t received an official schedule, but here’s where I think I’ll be presenting:


6:00 Lit Track Reading Hour (Salon C)


5:00 Envisioning a Better Steam Society Revisited (Patriot North)


11:00 Fiction and Faith (Salon C)

I hope to see you there!

In other news, I posted sneak peaks of my book covers on my Patreon, which you can view for only $1.00! My first short fiction collection and a novella should be dropping next month, just in time for PenguiCon, and I couldn’t possibly be more excited. More news on that when they go live!

ConFusion panel schedule

I’ll be at ConFusion in Detroit this coming weekend! All my panels are packed onto Saturday, which is great. Sadly, I’m not on any literary panels, but it seemed like they were having a harder time finding people for the general geek culture panels than they were for the literary ones, so since I volunteered for both, they probably put me where they needed panelists the most! Here’s where you can find me:

Parenting in the 21st Century

10am Saturday: Saugatuck

Parenting has always been a challenge, but is it more challenging these days? Are “the kids” no longer sufficiently respectful of one’s lawn?  And what is it with the YouTubes and the Twitters? Are these new problems, or just the same problems other generations of parents faced, dressed in new clothes?

That’s Not My Star Wars!

11am Saturday: Leelanaw

At one point, it appeared most of the world agreed on the canon-destroying awfulness of the Star Wars prequel films, and their unholy avatar Jar Jar Binks. But a new generation of Star Wars is taking hold, and not everyone is pleased with the direction that’s going, either. Where do we draw our mental lines, and why?

The Do’s and Don’ts of Fandom

1pm Saturday: Interlochen

Supporting one another is always important, especially in small communities. What is the best way to support others? How do we keep ourselves from hurting other fandoms

Reading: Dyrk Ashton, Tracy Townsend, Sarah Hans

5pm Saturday: Leelanaw

So…will I see you there?
