Chicago is only two weeks away – this will be my first trip to the States and it’s starting to feel very exciting! Not only will I be going to my first ever WorldCon but I get to catch up with two super talented artist friends I haven’t seen in years. I can’t wait for them to show me their city.
I’ll be at ChiCon for the full weekend, but you can find me here:
Friday 31 August, 10.30am (Crystal A)
Self-Editing Your Fiction
Many authors love to write the first draft, but hate to revise. Others have nothing against revising, but don’t really know what to change or how to change it. How can fiction writers gain distance from their own work, discover what needs to be changed, how to change it, and not lose interest while changing it?
Carrie Vaughn / Don Mead / E J Swift / Jeanne Cavelos (mod) / Rick Wilber

Night Bazaar party
Come, crush a cup of… well a bug, probably. Come say hello any time from 7pm, I’ll be with these fantastic Night Shade authors: Bradley Beaulieu, Betsy Dornbusch, Teresa Frohock, Kameron Hurley, Stina Leicht, Jeff Salyards, Courtney Schafer, Katy Stauber and Martha Wells. Judging by the planning correspondence, rum and bugs are set to feature heavily, and of course there’ll be loads of books to giveaway.

What it says. From my debut novel OSIRIS (here’s a link to a few reviews)
A huge (but surely not the last) thank you to all the wonderful people who supported me to raise funds for the trip – I wouldn’t have been able to go without your help. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes!
