For the first time in my life I had the pleasure of being interviewed for a podcast! This took place earlier this year at the brilliant Archipelacon, along with my partner, Gaie Sebold. We talked with the humungously charming Greg Pellechi from Adventures in SciFi Publishing about writing strong female characters, traveling as writers, collaboration, and more. That interview is now live, and you can listen to it here.
Greg kept the whole interview running smoothly and it was very interesting answering questions on the spot without repetition, deviation or going ‘Um, er, well, um…’ Thanks Greg!
Next Monday, 17 August I’ll be doing a short reading and a Q&A down in Bristol, invited there to read along with Gaie to one of the BristolCon Fringe events. This is a series of evening events organised by some of the people who also run the BristolCon SF&F convention.
Entry is free and it’s in a pub! Honestly, what more do you want? These guys have thought of everything. I think being read to is one of life’s rarer pleasures. It would be lovely to see you there if you can make it. As an added incentive if you are one of the first three people to come up to me and say ‘Ia! Ia! Cthulhu Fthagn’* I’ll buy you a pint. Promise.
Finally, BristolCon is a great one-day convention with a big reputation for being very friendly and relaxed. It’s coming soon – 26 September – so if you’ve never been before, why hesitate?
