Interview with Tris Drayke

Q:  Are you worried about rumors that Temnotta has sent a dark summoner after you? A:  Sure.  But I’ve always known there were dark summoners.  My grandfather, Lemuel, was possessed by the spirit of a dark summoner, the Obsidian King.  I know that this type of magic makes it very tempting to use the power for personal gain.  I didn’t think I’d be the only summoner of power around forever.  But I have to say, I wouldn’t have minded it […]

Interview with Kiara, Queen of Margolan

Q.  This war is forcing hard choices on its rulers, and dangerous times are on the horizon.  Isencroft has experienced terrible turmoil.  The Winter Kingdoms have been scourged by plague and famine.  Your husband, Tris Drayke, suspects that a dark summoner may not only be behind the invasion, but instrumental in the attacks on your son, Cwynn.  What is your biggest worry? A.  My dreams are dark.  I fear for the people I love, and for both my homeland of […]

Bravo for Balticon—Hawthorne Moon Sneak Peek is Coming Soon!

I spent most of Memorial Day weekend in Hunt Valley, MD at Balticon—and what a great weekend it was! Despite a few scheduling speed bumps (panelists didn’t find out their panels until a few days prior), everything eventually went just fine.  Many of us had some kind of transportation challenge, whether we came via plane, train or automobile.  I got grounded on the tarmac in Charlotte for an hour due to thunderstorms.  Jean  Marie Ward got stuck on the highway […]

Report From Ravencon

What a great time at Ravencon in Richmond!  This is always one of my favorite conventions because it’s big enough to have a lot to do and small enough to spend quality time with friends, readers and other authors. For once, Michael Ventrella and I weren’t on every single panel together, although Michael graciously asked me to join hin on two books marketing panels.  Alan Wold did his wonderful writing workshop, and then Alan, Peter Prellowitz and I were together […]

On the Convention Trail (A Writer on the Move Part II)

It’s spring, and conventions are in bloom.  I’ve just gotten back from Lunacon up in New York.  This was Lunacon’s 54th year, and it didn’t disappoint, though attendance was down a bit from prior years.  The programming track was robust and varied, panels had a good number of panelists as well as good attendance by attendees, and the vendor room had a great selection of items for sale. I was on about 12 panels—I lose track after a while—and had […]

On the Road with The Sworn: A Writer on the Move (Part I)

January saw me at two conventions, Arisia in Boston and Chattacon in Chattanooga, TN.  Both were first-time cons for me, and I really had a great time at both of them.  Arisia is big and jam-packed with panels.  Despite the fact that the con was in a brand new hotel, everything ran very smoothly.  I met some fun people, including Guest of Honor Kelly Armstrong (who will be a guest on an upcoming segment of my Ghost in the Machine […]
