ACE AZ Recap

I’m grateful for a really amazing time in Glendale, AZ with the recent ACE Comic Con! To every last book that found a new home, I hope it’s a happy one. Whatever you thought, do send/post your official review. I love the responses I’ve gotten during the convention – like nothing they’ve ever read, in scope as well as otherwise, poetic yet succinct. I’m glad Bones of Starlight is finding people who want something that is exactly this!

I chose the following cosplay characters as clue-ins to pose with the latest book…

And these ‘characters’ (a way of referring to actual people, which the following are!) got their own copies, along with the others:

Thanks to the great crew, the cool venue, the amazing guests, and the wonderful audience. Sunrise on the saguaro & music in the heart of Phoenix! Star-studded weather with a rain dance.

Ace Comic Con, Locus Awards

This past weekend I met with two excellent fellows in entertainment who each received copies of Bones of Starlight 1 – actor Tom Hiddleston, and director Kevin Smith! A genuine pleasure. With Tom, I’m wearing my author photo jacket (my ‘trail blazer’). I came to see Kevin in my borrowed Locus Awards hawaiian shirt, which is also where the flower lei came from. In the space where he’s holding his arm out, that’s where you can imagine YOURSELF in the picture.

The Locus Awards was a splendid and jolly affair, and was also the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Locus Magazine, a stalwart of science fiction & fantasy critical review.

Out and about in Seattle, I discovered an artwork location of Bones of Starlight cover artist Leo Shallat, and came out (again, as poly-pan-sexual) to celebrate with the Pride Parade.
