In the forthcoming days I will be appearing at a couple of events wearing (metaphorically) my author hat:
StokerCon 2021 – I’ll be doing an author reading (available on demand throughout the Con) and two panels:
May 21 4:00PM–4:50PM · Breakout Sessions
Tone and Setting: How to Create Suspense in Your Writing
Panelists discuss how to use tone and setting to create suspense in their writing. I’m moderating this one.
May 21 7:00PM–7:50PM · Breakout Sessions
Dialogue: How it Can Make or Break a Story
Panelists discuss the importance of dialogue to craft an effective and meaningful story. Moderated by Meghan Arcuri.
Then a couple of weekends after I’ll be generally hanging about at Cymera where I’ll be moderating a panel on Spy fiction:
Spies, Spies Everywhere with Terry Miles, Cavan Scott and Charlie Stross
- Sunday, June 6, 2021
- 5:30 PM 6:30 PM
Buckle your seat belts as spycraft is up against extermination of humanity: a man’s desperate mission to fix a glitch in a secret and dangerous underground game in Terry Miles’ Rabbits, a private investigator working in London’s magic criminal underworld in Cavan Scott’s Shadow Service and a disgraced world walker and her mother fighting coming up against robotic alien invaders after an inter-timeline coup d’etat gone awry in Charlie Stross’ Invisible Sun.
