Reminder: Thursday in Austin [Apr. 14th, 2015|03:49 pm]

[Current Mood |excited]

Coffee with the Author, this Thursday at 11:30 am,  on the the terrace (if not raining, snowing, sleeting, hailing....) or inside St. David's Episcopal Church in downtown Austin.  Free parking in the St. David's garage (enter off Trinity between 7th and 8th streets; sign in at the main desk for a parking voucher.  It's a 30 minute interview/chat with KUT's Jennifer Stayton.

I will be bringing along the proof copy of Deeds of Honor to show and tell about--the print-on-demand paperback soon to be available of my latest short-fiction collection.  It came out as an indie-published e-Book in December 2014.   And if given a chance, I'll talk about my sock theory of storytelling.  (You knew I'd drag knitting into it!)  If you want, you can see where I sing on Sundays (it's got really lovely stained glass and the floor creaks.)

This should be fun--so come if you can.  I'm excited.

Wish I were in the neighborhood, but Atlanta is a bit far away. Besides the day job, of course! It sounds like a comfortable welcoming place!

True. Going to DragonCon? I'll be in Atlanta for that.

Not sure -- can't do a full pass, but might finagle a day trip once your schedule is settled. Last year I had the chance to visit youngest son in Seattle, and let me tell you, their weather is a lot more pleasant on Labor Day that Atlanta's!

I can believe that. Though I didn't mind the rain (and wished it was falling on Texas.)

When I get a schedule, I'll post it. I hope we can overlap our schedules.

Oh, it rained in Seattle over Labor Day, but the temps were in the 60's, and it was a soft misty type of rain -- light jacket weather. Here, it would have been in the 90's so that one feels wrapped in saranwrap.

Yes, I'd love to meet up.

I wish I lived close enough to be there. I got to see you speak at the National Book Festival a few years back, but that was very impersonal.

Was hoping I could go, but this house building thing has a noose around my throat. Only a few more months and it will be over!

I'd like to see one of my favorite authors at least once before one of us kicks the bucket. :)

Let's work on not kicking the bucket for somewhat longer...time is opportunity, and all that philosophical stuff.

Not to mention the books you must write, which I must read.

There is that...(O deadline, my deadline, I don't hold you dear...when day after day you keep coming more near.) Sort of a joke. Not entirely.

A gate thingie would be wonderful!

Dancer (the one in the icon on the first post) was my first horse. An Appendix QH that was truly appendix (pure foundation on one side, pure TB on the other). I was very lucky to have known one like her. The icon in this is a headshot of her only foal (Dancer's Echo).

Wrong side of the Atlantic for me, I'm afraid. By the way, Paksworld appears to be down, don't know if you know.

All my sites are down because **!** Verizon had an outage, took over six hours to sorta fix it, but in a way that knocked my site host offline. They were supposed to fix it today, but never did, and finally in late afternoon sent an email to the old (hardly ever used) email address to say they might get someone on it late tonight. By which time it will be nearly 48 hours since their network went unstable with repercussions down the line.

Neither my site hosting service not I are happy with Verizon. This is not the first time they've screwed over my hosting service.

I should put up a note, I guess. Thanks for mentioning it, since I tend to think people will catch my retweets of SFFnet. And of course not everyone is on any one social media site.

What a nuisance for you! I hate it when that happens.
