If you’ve been waiting for an email response from me recently, I regret that I’m going to have to ask you to wait a little longer.
The last time I had my computer on was Thursday, doing a full back-up prior to leaving for Balticon. Then I was at the hotel all weekend. The convention ended Monday afternoon, and then I was in the wilds of western Virginia seeing friends and business associates. Got to civilization Tuesday night late, only to discover some computer difficulties. Those difficulties have finally been resolved, but it’s Thursday afternoon, I’ve been away from the keyboard for a week, and I’m leaving dark and early in the morning for ConCarolinas. I’ll be back from that convention late Sunday night, so I should finally be able to start working my way through the email backlog Monday.
Again, I’m sorry. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
And if you’re going to be at ConCarolinas, here’s the reminder that you’ll be able to find me at my dealer table in what they call Authors’ Alley (NOT the dealers’ room). Scheduled to be open 3–8pm Friday, 10am–7pm Saturday, and 10am–2pm Sunday.
The panels I’m scheduled to be on at ConCarolinas are:
Friday at 10 PM in Olmstead: “The Ethics of Using AI and Machine Learning in Content Creation” with Bishop O’Connell, William C. Tracy, and Brandon N. Whitworth.
Saturday at 12:30 PM in Olmstead: “How to Destroy the World” with Charlie Kaufman, Darin Kennedy, Cisca Small, and Mel Todd.
Sunday at 12:30 PM in Keynes: “Walking On Sunshine and Where’s the Beef” with Samantha Bryant, Nancy Northcott, and Amy Ravenel.
Sunday at 1:30 PM in Walden: “Mars Wants What?” with R.M. Hamrick, Michael Mammay, Edward McKeown, and Sumiko Saulson.
