Right after I promised to post more (Hi, Griff) I got my revision notes on Heretic Blade back from my agent. They are... extensive. So I've been head down trying to figure out exactly how I'm going to tackle them and in what order. It looks like a lot of what I've written for this book will end up in a second book, and I'll essentially be re-writing this book from scratch. So there's that.
But in other news, I have my pretty much final schedule for Worldcon this year. It's in Chicago this year, and this will be my first Worldcon with panels. It's kind of intimidating. But, anyway, here's my schedule. If you want to see me and hear me talk about things I know about, rather than my usual practice of just blathering until someone changes the subject, find me here:
|Thu Aug 30 4:30:pm||Thu Aug 30 6:00:pm||Faith in Fiction|
-- or even the considered rejection of faith -- is an area often
overlooked in world-building for speculative fiction in spite of the
impact it's had on our world (for good and bad). How does faith affect
the world view and formation of a fictional world?
