I had the opportunity to work at Boskone 54 as both a vendor and a panelist. I sat on some amazing panels and met some pretty spiffy folks. The event, overall, it was amazing. The people in attendance were voracious readers looking for new material to consume. I talked more about science fiction than I had in my entire life. I recommended books, sold some of my own, and had a chance to make some new friends with both readers and other vendors.
I was so incredibly nervous attending, but familiar faces through the New England Horror Writer’s made it bearable. I have to give a special shout out to Cat & Barry for making sure I had food and bathroom breaks. Trisha was kind enough to cover my table while I spoke on a panel and Suzanne talked geek with me while bringing me chocolate. I’m still constantly amazed with how wonderful this tribe of writers in the Northeast can be. I’m thrilled to have met them.
While at Boskone I also got interviewed by Max Bowen and Matt Zappa from Citywide Blackout of WEMF Radio. They were a riot to talk to and did a great job loosening me up while we shot the shit. We talked superheroes, zombies and where they intersect. If you want to check it out, you can listen over on Citywide’s Blog.
In other good news, Nighthawks is currently in the process of being turned into an audio book. I’m thrilled and a slight be terrified. While that is being done behind the scenes I’m still in the middle of writing Morning Sun and on track to have it available come May. I’ll have even more good news coming in the next few weeks, but I wanted to share what I could now. Thanks for the support everybody, this wild and crazy ride is still going strong!
