WisCon Schedule

If any of you are coming to WisCon this year, I'd love to say hi! Here's where I'll be:

Saturday, June 29 4 pm
The Fearless Vampire Slayers

The changing image of the vampire in popular literature is eliminating the "traditional" vampire as a valid figure, replacing it with either protagonist–vampires separated from evil or science–fiction ones separated from the supernatural. Is this AGoodThing™ or ABadThing™? Where do we go from here?

Saturday, June 29 10:30 pm
Internet Publishing: The Graduate Seminar

Authors who have been selling fiction directly to the public via the Internet talk about their experience: start–up learning curve, teamwork, the role of volunteers, working the social network, staying sane and writing through it all.

Sunday, June 30 8:30 am
Madison Vampire Coven Reading

I'll read from Hemovore, which just came out in print this month! The reading is at:

Michelangelo's Coffee Shop 114 State Street
Madison, WI USA
608-251-5299

I loved Hemovore. I meant to post a review at the time but of course I failed to remember LOL, and now the coherent expression of my thoughts has gone :(. I'll get it back soon. I loved the tone of the book's worldbuilding - familiar yet oh-so-not - and the clever way the characters had developed in that lifestyle, whether they were at the top or bottom of the chain. Especially liked the shock of the protagonists' lives changing from complacency to danger, and how they coped. And they enchanted me throughout. Yes, I'll write it all out sensibly soon :).

You pinpointed the thing I thought was key about the book: the complacency to danger on/off switch.

I'm so happy you enjoyed the worldbuilding! :D
