I’ll admit I rushed this one a bit, since I am off to stalk the convention center the day before Gen Con officially starts. I hope to get a little writing done, maybe in the Artsgarden, maybe not. Yes, that’s me on the left with the purple hair. I haven’t seen it outside yet, but it’s quite different. 🙂 I’ve had this goal of staying outside my comfort zone for a couple of years now, and this ought to do it.
But hey, Gen Con is my culture, my people. It’s like returning to some Brigadoon-like homeland that appears just once a year. I try to let myself not care what anyone thinks and let my geek/freak flag fly.
Trans-Continental: Girl in the Gears is in its final stages, as editing is finished, and I just need to get the cover and some details taken care of. Should be coming to you soon through Audible and iTunes for your listening pleasure. I mean that too, my narrator is Angel Clark, and she does a spectacular job. Her voice characterizations really make the audiobook its own delightful experience, almost like a one woman radio play.
Meanwhile, I am 16,000 words into writing Trans-Continental: Mississippi Queen! My hope is to have the beta draft done by the end of the month. I have some folks reading along as I write it, and early feedback has been enthusiastic and positive. This likely means that I’ll have it out in ebook and print by the end of November.
For those of you going to Gen Con, I hope to see you there!
