The world is too much with us, late and soon
Well it is with me. This has been a very busy year and very distracting! Hopefully with a new book on the horizon, the energy and activities will increase.

LosCon 43

Maggie missed the cut off date to be on a panel at LosCon 43 this year but she'll be there from time to time, wandering around in the usual daze, sitting in on programming from the other side of the table, possibly hanging out in the bar. You just never know. Come on down to the Airport Marriott and find out! (Follow the tiny laughter, if you can hear it!)

And here we all are  getting ready for a packed house. 
Which in a bookstore is around 30 people. and that's about how many we had! Exciting readings from everyone. Good questions from the audience. I don't know how many books they sold, but it was nice to get out and meet the readers, and be local celebrity if only in a tiny way
