Writing deadlines and Con deadlines wait for no person . . .

Been a busy night tonight.

Added 1,257 words to Operation Komodo bringing me to the final scene. Let’s just say, our commandos have a bit more to think about when their guide points out while the commandos may be fighting the Japanese, at least they can leave after the operation. The natives have to stay there (and probably get blamed for helping the commandos whether they did or not). Our Captain Delaney’s war is not so personal anymore. Actions do have consequences, no matter which side you’re on.

Also, I received a galley this evening I need to read, red line, and return as quickly as possible.

And beyond that, I have another short story I’m trying to get ready before I leave for Origins. More on that later . . . I hope.

Convention preparation went on tonight on several fronts.

Awesome Con is best summed up by an earlier tweet of mine tonight. “Small comic boxes assembled, books located, new price list printed, display items located, table cover found, t-shirts AWOL *sigh*” Yep, it’s always something.

Tomorrow night, I’ll arrange everything on the kitchen table to ensure I have my optimal set up. Normally, this wouldn’t be an issue, but this is the first time I’d adding an electronic visual to the table set up. Since a lot of my work has been with e-books lately, I built a slide show of my book covers to let people know I have more available than what I have on the table in front of them.

And, beyond Awesome Con, I’m starting prep for Origins Game Fair which comes up next week and also I’ve been chatting with Ashley Chappell-Peeples and Amanda Porter about the upcoming Rocket City Literature Festival.

But now, it’s time to call it a night.
