It’s not that I believe that the Mayans had some insider information on when the world would end. If they knew that, surely they would have seen the collapse of their own empire, right? But damned if I don’t love a deadline, even an artificial one. And what’s more of a deadline than the end of the world?
So it is with that cheery thought that I present my planned convention schedule for 2012. Plan to adjust your stalking accordingly.
- March 30-April 1st — Emerald City Comic Con, Seattle, WA — Timid Pirate Publishing will have a table here, and we’ll be in full pimpage mode. Should be fun. And it’s downtown Seattle, so great after-con food and drink options for people visiting.
- April 5th-8th –Norwescon, SeaTac, WA — Right after Emerald City, I get to roll into Norwescon, one of the conventions I never miss. I promise to be tired, a bit punch-drunk, and who knows if I’ll be on any panels. But I plan on being there, and staying either at the hotel or nearby.
- September 21-23rd — Foolscap, Redmond, WA — A nice, quiet convention that feels like a 3 day writer’s coffee klatch. I never miss this one either, and might be taking part in putting together some writing workshop content. The novel outlining workshop I ran last year was a lot of fun for me, and I like to think useful for at least a few people.
- November 1-4th — World Fantasy Con, Toronto, Ontario — This is the big one, ladies and gentlemen! My biggest convention ever. Come join me for exploring the city that Forever Knight made moderately famous. Land of poutine and maple leaves.
Hopefully I’ll see some of y’all there. I’m very approachable. And I promise to keep the dick jokes to a minimum. I am a professional, after all.

Will we have time for the apocalypse if we meet at the big con in Toronto? 😉
Sure! We’ll have almost 2 months until the prophesied end. Plenty of time for writerly hijinks and debauchery. 😀
I’m very tempted but must consider it closely. November can be a difficult month to travel in, work wise, as it’s usually a busy month.
World Fantasy 2013 will be in Brighton, England. That would be a bit closer to you, and even more fun. And I’m pretty sure I’d like to go to that one as well.
But if it makes the decision easier, I already have a room booked with two double beds and a sleeper sofa, so a place to stay is assured if you should need one.
Brighton would be a lot easier to go to!
I really should sign up for that instead.
Thanks a lot for offering a place to stay in Toronto, that’s very nice of you.
