Boskone this weekend

Knock on wood, no snow storms predicted for this weekend's trek into Boskone. Sure, it's going to be below freezing, but we'll be indoors and it seems that it was much colder just a few weeks ago.

Hope to see some of you there. I'm horrible at remembering faces, so don't be insulted if I sneak a peek at your name tag before returning your welcoming hello. Oh, yeah, and I have to remind myself that it's OKAY to look at people's chests at conventions because that's where the name tags usually are ;-)

I won't be doing any readings or panels at this one, but watch for me at the Broad Universe table in the huckster's room (vending area). Broad Universe is is an international organization with the primary goal of promoting science fiction, fantasy, and horror written by women. "Anyone excited about that project is welcome to join us" -- that is, you don't have to be a writer, an artist, an editor, poet, or other contributor to join us. You just have to like (and support) the idea that women can -- and do -- make worthy contributions to these genres. So, stop by. We sell books, sign up new members, and chat about the field.
