Just submitted what I hope are the final edits to “Ripples in the Pool” and reviewed the cover art for the short story. I’m pretty pleased with how this is all coming together. Now, it’s time to start working on “Wings of Fire”.
I just realized that Wings will be the eighth of the ten stories for the For a Few Gold Pieces More collection. The end is definitely in sight for our rogue, at least as far as this collection goes. I’m probably going to take a break from him for a while, but I don’t think he’s likely to stay gone for too long. I’m enjoying the world I’m building with each story he appears in and someone with his talents is not likely to take retirement sitting down.

Received my schedule for the Baltimore Book Festival, which goes from September 27 -29, 2013. The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writer’s of America are going to have a good contingent at the show this year. However, a number of the participants aren’t arriving until Friday evening, so we locals apparently get to kick things off.
Baltimore Book Festival Schedule
- Friday, Sep. 27
- 3:00 pm Shared Worlds and Media Tie-ins
- 6:00pm Writer Beware Workshop
- Saturday, Sep 28 and Sunday, Sep 29
- Hang around, sign books, and visit at the SFWA pavillion
As you can see, the Book Festival is a bit more laid back than most of the conventions I go to, but it’s still a lot of fun and there’ll be authors, book sellers, and other people involved in publishing at the show. If you can make it down to Baltimore for the show, it’s a great time (and you’re half a block away from the Walter’s Art Museum, which is a great place to take a break if you’re tired of being outdoors.)
