To Canada, I Go

Updates will be a little thin on the ground here until next week or so — because I’m leaving on a jetplane to go to the OTHER end of Canada (I was in Toronto around May). I’ll be in Vancouver for the Surrey International Writers’ Conference, with the likes of Mary Robinette Kowal, Diana Gabaldon, Pam van Hylckama, Sarah Wendell, Donald Maass, and Cory Doctorow.

I’ll be giving a keynote, and also giving workshops on THEME and CHARACTER.

Because theme and character are awesome, that’s why.

Oh, and a panel on THE SOCIAL MEDIAS. In which I will refuse to acknowledge that any social media exists that is not Ello. I will also fire Ello Invites from a cannon.

If you’re attending, say hi! I may have stickers. STICKERS, I TELL YOU.

Because what 12-year-old doesn’t love stickers. (And, at heart, I’m basically 12.)

If you’re in the area but not attending, do note that there is a “free to the public!” author signing on Saturday night, which I will be attending.
