An important decision

I have made an important decision. Though it's late in the game, I'm declaring myself a write-in candidate for the SFWA presidency, following the example of John Scalzi. I think my career thus far speaks for itself and I can use that leverage from the office to improve the organization. I have plenty of momentum to help me through the challenges of a year of service given that all my contracted books have now been delivered.

My platform is simple:

1) That SFWA open its doors to aspiring writers at all levels to ensure future membership strength
2) That SFWA offer profit sharing to its members, based on their SFnal credentials
3) That time travel stories be banned from membership eligibility
4) That SWFA make a serious effort to subsume HWA, MWA and RWA in order to better serve writers across America
5) SFWA co-sponsorship of Virgin Galactic so SFWA members can get free rides into orbit
6) Free beer at all conventions

Thank you very much for your support.
