News from the Trenches

Oh man, it’s been a wild few months. I’m finally home after three or so months of travel–Dragon Con, Seattle, California, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany–and realizing just how much I have to do in the next month. So, what am I up to?

Convolution Workshops!

After a last-minute cancellation last year, I’m returning to ConVolution in San Francisco for the 2015 convention.

State of the Jaym

About a year ago, Charles Tan and Christie Yant pulled me aside (okay, so it was a Twitter conversation, but Very Stern) and pointed out that I needed an agent.

Changing of the Guard

Effective July 1, 2015, I will no longer be SFWA’s Communications Director. It’s been a long, interesting, and educational time with the organization, and one that has been immensely beneficial to both sides. I have been considering my options for a while now. While I have had the fortune to work on many wonderful projects […]
