Podcast Interview Up!

April 19, 2011

Mike Plested and I met last fall when I was Guest of Honor at ConVersion in Calgary.  Recently, Mike interviewed me for his “Irreverent Muse” podcast, and the interview is now up on the website and available for download.  Check it out here.  Hope you enjoy it.

I returned home late yesterday from JordanCon, after a terrific weekend.  The folks at the con treated me wonderfully and I had a chance to visit with my old friend, Jana Oliver, and to meet new friends Brandon Sanderson, Eugie Foster, and Harriet MacDougal (Robert Jordan’s widow).  Because I returned home late, Diana Pharaoh Francis took my blogging slot at Magical Words this week.  Check out her post here.  And I’ll be back to posting at Magical Words next week.

Off to JordanCon!

Later today I’m heading down to Atlanta for JordanCon, where I am this year’s Literary Guest of Honor.  I’m excited about the convention — it looks like there will be some great writing-oriented programming, and the other guests include Brandon Sanderson, Eugie Foster, and my wonderful friend, Jana Oliver.  If you happen to be in the area, please stop in and say hello, maybe catch a panel or two.
