My WorldCon 2016 schedule! Ditch Diggers Live Rides Again!

One week from today I’ll be boarding a plane alongside my luminous fiancée, Nikki, and the pair of us will be flying to Kansas City for The 74th WorldCon, taking place during MidAmeriCon II. I’ll be appearing on and even moderating a few panels, and (naturally) shilling the various books I have out right now. The big ticket item is, of course, the second annual Ditch Diggers Live!

Brianna Wu! Conventions! Morgan Freeman’s wrapping room! A new episode of Ditch Diggers is live!

Hey, folks. Campbell Award winning author Mur Lafferty and I  are back again for a new episode of your favorite podcast about writing as a job. We call it Ditch Diggers. In this episode Mur and I talk about us both being mentioned in Entertainment Weekly in the same week for totally unrelated reasons (they talked about Mur’s Twitter creation #Sansaball and I was credited as “other industry source”). We also briefly touch on Morgan Freeman’s penchant for multi-lingual versions of Uno…
