4/21-4/24Seattle, WA for Norwescon (Seatac, actually)Convention!

Caveats:

  • Everything on the schedule after JayCon XI is subject to cancellation should I go back into cancer treatment based on my April scans

  • There will be trips to Omaha every five to seven weeks

  • There will be additional Day Jobbe trips which I may or may not announce Open Dinners for

  • I may add one or two more conventions to my fall schedule

  • If you'd like me at your event and don't see it listed here, let me know; I'm happy to discuss the possibility

Bummer. That's pretty much the one convention I do regularly. There's a cavalcade of us from FL who have made this our annual gathering of geekdom for the last few years now. I don't know if you've ever been, but I think you'd have a blast. :)

You're coming to Michigan! :)

I'll be at BaltiCon that weekend. :(
But it will be for the anthology release with my first short story sale :)

Which sounds like an excellent reason not to be in Michigan that weekend. :)

The lack of confirmation has more to do with me not knowing where my healthcare journey will take me later this year.

That'd be me being slow - I caught up to that info later that day. Here's hoping your journey goes where you would like it to!

It strikes me as a potentially cool thing if you and I were to ever have trips to Omaha that would coincide.

We miss seeing you on a semi regular basis. It will be good to see you (I hope) at NWC.

Hmm, might have to check out that Steam Expo, Dearborn is a trivial drive from my area.

Here's hoping Readercon ends up confirmed, both because it'll likely mean you got good results from your scan and because it'd be good to see you.



[And yes, I've become terrible about keeping up with LJ.]
