Balticon 41 took place over the Memorial Day weekend. For those unfamiliar with it Balticon is a science and fantasy fiction convention which has been running in the Baltimore area since before dirt was invented. With its focus more on the literary end of scifi, Balticon has long been a meeting place for writers of genre fiction. The last time I attended was many many years ago as a fan. This weekend I went back as a writer and the experience was wonderful. I met and listened to many published and unpublished authors and came away from the weekend with a better idea of what I want to do with my books once they are completed.

While on vacation in Florida this week I began a new story, but I really have no idea if it will be a novel, young adult novella or short story. I feel very strongly about this one, so I’m just writing it out and will wait and see where it leads me. Please have a look at the first page of The Empress Sword in my First Pages.
