I'm doing a live chat with Jack Campbell (John Hemry) this afternoon at 4 pm EDT on the Suvudu site...did a test run of the software this morning, in fact, to make sure I had things set up right at this end. You can get directly to the chat location here. It's billed as a "Master Class on Research" so we'll be talking about the research techniques we use in both science fiction and fantasy, at least part of the time. Want to know how to find out who captained a destroyer in the Royal Navy in WWI? How to tell good sources from bad? Drop in and ask questions.
Right after the chat, I leap into my Meet-the-Public disguise and head for Austin, for the 7 pm event at Book People. Yes, it's a rainy day, but that's exactly why you need to be indoors, surrounded by books and people who read them, and celebrating something (yes, I know, that's a self-serving statement. But I sure would hate to be staring vaguely at the walls, trying to look like sitting in front of a lot of empty chairs was my idea of fun...so if and only if you want to, come on down...)
