Tina Connolly & CSE Cooney at WFC
Epic World Fantasy Reading! Ably assisted by the remarkable CSE Cooney, we read a selection from BOX (my SF play, co-written with Matt Haynes), followed by a selection from The Bone Swans of Amandale, from Cooney's gorgeous collection, Bone Swans. Thanks so much to all who came! It was a nicely crowded room full of friends.

(Picture by Caroline M. Yoachim, who was also epic at her reading, as she SANG.)

Also, a continuing signal boost to the issue of accessibility at all cons. We can do better! I heard about a number of issues this weekend that I hadn't thought about, having no mobility issues myself at the present time. I tried to listen, and learn for the future.

Next week is Orycon here in Portland. I'm looking forward to spending some time with all my PNW friends. I've got some panels and a reading (and I'm helping face paint for the kids' parade!). Full schedule below and here on Sched in a prettier format.

It's capped off by an epic mass signing at Powell's Cedar Hills on Sunday, from 4-5. Literally, like, everyone will be there. Literally. (Sorry, we've finally been watching Parks & Rec and I literally can't stop saying it.)

Locals, see you soon!
