On My Way to Marcon!

April 5, 2012

I’m on my way to Marcon, where I will be a literary special guest.  I’m staying tonight in Knoxville, Tennessee, where I had dinner with my wonderful friend, Faith Hunter.  Faith and I will be driving up to Columbus tomorrow morning (while her husband, Rod, kayaks!) and joining up with our terrific agent, Lucienne Diver.

I always miss my family on these trips, but I also enjoy the chance to spend time with my writer friends and talk shop. That’s what Faith and I did over dinner, and no doubt will again during our drive tomorrow.  I hope to see some of you at the convention.  If you’re there, please find me and say hello.  I’ll be on panels, I have a reading on Saturday night, and I’ll be signing books Friday.  I’ll also be catching up with an old friend from home Saturday morning. Looking forward to a fun weekend.


Short Story Released!

April 3, 2012

More D. B. Jackson news!  I have a new story out (as D.B.) at Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, the online magazine.  The story is called “A Memory of Freedom,” and it is the feature story in this month’s issue of IGMS.  You can read more about the story here.  And, in case you’re interested, here is the artwork that accompanies the story:

"A Memory of Freedom," by D.B. Jackson (art by Wayne Miller)


I hope that you’ll visit the IGMS site and enjoy the story.

End of a Long Day

April 1, 2012

Long day. Ended better than it started, even with the Stanford Women getting beaten. But a long, long day. Parenting is hard. That’s really all I have to say. Parenting is really, really hard. It’s the most rewarding thing I do, but it takes the most energy, the most attention, the most emotion.

Long day.
