I had two panels today, one with Stoney Compton, and a couple others whose names escape me. And another that I’ll cover later. This is a video of some of the performers from last night. Special note for the people who were annoyed at the performers. I am much meaner than they are. Oh yes, […]

Howdy ho! I’m here, you should be too. Today i have two early panels, one at 10am “Science and the Art of Logistics” followed immediately by a panel on writers groups at 11:30. David Drake i believe has three back to back panels this morning. He is braver than I. Jason Cordova has brought his […]
I thought having an unstable, or non working computer was annoying. The semi stability may be just as bad. I’d had the old computer, and the version of Office, and Firefox installed for years. Over that time between the agency, ebooks, message boards, mailing lists and the like I’ve imputed a couple thousand words, names, and […]

Being an evil agent can be pretty fun. There’s kicking puppies which never gets old, telling vegetarians they smell like prey, ripping the tags off mattresses, and of course the fresh tastes of victory and vengeance as another domino falls in the plan for world conquest. Then too there is the simple ability to inspire […]
The West Coast Invasion is Coming! I will be at Conjecture. You should be there too. I fly in Friday and out late Sunday. Hopefully I’ve used this years supply of bad travel-fu. I haven’t got clue one as to what panels I’ll be on yet… updates as they arrive. www.conjecture.org

Then i have to know where it’s going to go first and what I’m going to emphasize in the cover letter to those […]
Does anyone know of any safe place to get add-ons for Internet Explorer? I’m trying to see if my computer issues are caused by the computer, or my browsers, but IE without the toys is mostly useless.

In answer to laurahcory1 ‘s question a couple posts back about what a typical day is like, I really don’t have those. I try and dedicate two or three days at a time to reading slush, and use other days to catch up with clients and editors. Some days I simply hit industry news sources. Yesterday was […]
The good news is that aside from time, none of the submissions to my slush pile are affected. The bad news is that during the computer transition the hard drive that had all the info died it has been sent out to a data recovery places and in theory I will get it all back. […]
