a great big promo post

March 4, 2020

I have a bunch of links and news and things to share. Things are getting busy around these parts.

The deadline for applying for this year’s Odyssey Writing Workshop is April 1. Scholarships are available. This is the workshop I attended in 1998, that I credit for kicking me out of the “almost published” rut into having an actual writing career. Give it a look over. Bonus:  I’m dropping in this year as a video guest.

Waaaaay back when we released Wild Cards: Inside Straight, we also put together an in-universe blog that gave the whole run-down on the first season of reality TV show “American Hero.” I think that was even before I had started this blog. Whew! Now, Tor has released American Hero as an e-book, compiling the blog entries and preserving them for eternity, which is awesome. Since American Hero was my fault idea, I did a bunch of the writing on this — all the weekly summaries, and so on. Most of the confessionals were written by that character’s creator. Group effort! If you didn’t have a chance to see this the first time around, this is a great chance to catch up.

Here’s a lovely review of The Immortal Conquistador, which will be out in less than two weeks. Edit:  My contributor copies have just arrived! It’s a real book!

Reminder:  March 13 (Friday the 13th, appropriate!) at 7 pm, I’ll be reading from and discussing The Immortal Conquistador at the BookBar in Denver.

Tor.com is collecting the flash fiction series Nevertheless She Persisted as a free e-book. This will be out March 8, and includes my piece, “Alchemy.”

I wrote an essay for Speculative Chic marveling at the influence of the show Robin of Sherwood: “In Which Out Intrepid Author Rediscovers the Most Influential Robin Hood Since Errol Flynn.”

Getting back into the swing of the book promo thing. Meanwhile, I’ve got two novel manuscripts to revise? How the heck did that happen? Wuf.
