Now that it’s a work day in April that’s not April Fool’s Day, I can tell you things without being immediately doubted. So today I will remind you about my appearances over the next couple of months.
April 14-15: Texas Library Association Annual Conference, Austin, Texas: Are you a librarian in Texas? And going to the TLA Annual Conference? Then it is a good chance that you shall see me there, as I will be there to a) hang out at the Tor booth on the 14th, signing stuff, b) do a panel on the 15th with Patrick Rothfuss and other authors. THERE WILL BE STEW (note: there will not be stew).
As I will be in Austin specifically for the TLA, it’s unlikely I’ll slip into the real world and do much of anything else. Sorry, Austin. I know you’re awesome; I’ve been there before. But I’ll try to get into Texas again soon.
April 22-24: Minicon 46, Bloomington, MN: I’m the substitute Guest of Honor here, filling in for my pal Charlie Stross. I’ll be doing all the things Guests of Honor do, including panels, a reading, Q&A and signing. This is my only scheduled appearance in the Upper Midwest for 2011, so if you want to see me, this is the place to do it.
April 29 – May 1: Penguicon 9.0, Troy, MI: As far as I know at the moment, I’m just hanging out this year, although I may have signed up for a panel or two; really, I can’t remember, I was so high when I registered. Point is, I’ll be about.
May 10-18: The Fuzzy Tour, Various Cities. Here are the dates, cities and places I’ll appear. Won’t you come? I’ll be pining for you specifically. Yes, you.
May 19-22: The Nebula Awards Weekend, Washington DC: At which as SFWA President I’ll preside over the handing out of awards, and the SFWA business meeting and all other sorts of stuff. Although a SFWA event, fans can also attend; click that link for registration information. There will also be a signing event that will feature many of your favorite science fiction and fantasy authors — and me! More information on that as we get closer to the date.
And that’s what I have at the moment. It’s possible I may add another event or two at the end of May, but that’s still being worked on. Naturally I will let you know if anything else gets added to the schedule.
This is the schedule, incidentally, that makes me glad I actually finished that novel I was working on.
