With fellow fantasy writer Marta Blieze, I attended the DarkoverCon in Timonium, Maryland over Thanksgiving Day weekend. Multiple tracks of science fiction and fantasy programming kept us busy, but I especially enjoyed the Steampunk track and a chance to dress up.


The small con offered many chances to mingle with fantasy authors, including a favorite YA author, Tamora Pierce.

Finalist in the Finally a Bride Contest

The end of October I learned I’m a finalist in Oklahoma RWA’s Finally a Bride Contest. I’m thrilled. The entries go on to editors Anne Bensson of St. Martin’s Press and Leah Wilson of BenBella. The finalists are allowed to revise their entries before submitting to the final round. This is both a blessing and a test for the nerves:

What if I change something that appealed to a judge?

I have another week before the package is mailed. I’m letting the submission rest before one last check.
