Dear Robot Blog Hop

ReleaseDay

I'm super thrilled to announce the release of my short story, "Welcome to OASIS" as part of the Dear Robot: An Anthology of Epistolary Science Fiction.

DESCRIPTION: Dear Robot is an anthology of nineteen science fiction stories told in a variety of epistolary styles. Letters, scientific notes, manuals, and emails all tell different stories about the future. From a behavioral contract for interstellar exchange students to a transmission from an astronaut in space, these sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreaking stories all use their structure to amplify their message—especially when that message is that a band of deadly robots are chipping away at the door.

Reviews are the lifeblood of an author - they are the #1 promotional tool for any book, because they help readers find good quality books. Beyond that, some important promotional opportunities only open up to authors when they reach a certain number of reviews - 10, 50, and 100 are key milestone number of reviews that open doors for authors. Hereafter (Afterlife #1) is currently at 31 reviews on Amazon, and I'd like, with your help, to get it to the next milestone.

I'm Not Dead!

No, I'm not dead - perhaps only mostly dead.

It's been a rough year, starting this past winter. We live in New England. You may have seen the weather. We got nine feet of snow every single day, January through March - or maybe it only seemed that way. We did get more than 100 inches of snow January - March, however, which is bad enough. I finally stopped the snow storms personally, by invoking Murphy's Law in mid-March - I broke down and bought a snow blower, which guaranteed there would be no more major snow storms. You're welcome.

Readercon Recap


Back from Readercon (July 10-13 in Burlington, MA), trailing swag and books from my suitcase, my brain bubbling with story ideas, as usual (this post is a bit late - it should have gone up Monday).

The Readercon name badges were super fancy this year (usually they're just plain white).
