RavenCon has been great fun. I’ve caught up with old friends — Ed Schubert, Gail Martin, Stuart Jaffe, Misty Massey and her husband Todd, Bryan Prindiville, James Maxey, Mike Kabongo, Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Mike McPhail, Jagi Lamplighter and John Wright, Jamie Rubin, and several others I’m forgetting right now (it’s late and I might have had a beer or three). I’ve also met some new friends — Maggie Stiefvater, Gray Rinehart, Valerie Griswold-Ford, to name a few. I’ve been invited to submit stories for a couple of anthologies, I’ve discussed a collaboration with a friend, I’ve signed a few books and spoken on a few panels and laughed a great deal.

Okay, let me start with an apology to all the Edgar Allen Poe fans out there. I actually do know that this year marks Poe’s 200th birthday and not his 150th. I just had a brain-fart moment while writing Wednesday’s post, and I’m sorry for that. Whatever year it is, I will be reading “The Tell-Tale Heart” tonight here at RavenCon to help commemorate Poe’s birthday. If you’re at the con please stop by. I’ll also be reading from one of my own stories or books (not sure which yet) on Sunday morning at 10:30. Please stop by for that, too.
I’ve already run into Misty Massey (with whom I blog at http://Magicalwords.net ) and several other friends, and I look forward to seeing more familiar faces as the weekend goes on. I got to hear Misty’s reading, which was wonderful, and I saw an Edgar Allen Poe action figure for sale, which I might just have to buy…. More as it develops!

First lawn-cutting of the year this afternoon. It sucked just as much as the last one of 2008. Some things never change…. Tomorrow is kind of a big day for me. We have a local spring festival at my daughter’s school every year. It’s called Trails and Trilliums, and there are hikes, talks, art, games and fun for kids, etc. It’s a fun weekend. And this year I’m the featured artist. My photos are on the publicity posters and I’ll be giving a talk on macro photography tomorrow afternoon. I also hope to be selling my photos. Should be lots of fun. For the locals among you, if you’re in the area, stop by and say hello.
