I won't be at Dragon*Con this year. The wife would like a vacation that doesn't involve inhaling patchouli, and I want to get away from thinking "Wait. Did I actually talk about Land of the Lost for an hour?" But I should be back in full force next year. This year it's Florida instead.
But I will be at Sci-Fi Summer June 9-10 in Atlanta. More info as the panels and events are finalized, and I come up with more ideas with what to do with my time down there. A smaller con will be a refreshing change from the unwieldiness that is often Dragon*Con, so we'll see how it goes.
I'm also starting on the pile of books I got for Christmas, by way of several Books-A-Million gift cards. The winners are:
Voyage by Stephen Baxter
Song of Kali by Dan Simmons
Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town by Cory Doctorow
The Atrocity Archives and The Jennifer Morgue by Charles Stross
And, getting my copywriting business fully and profitably off the ground. To that end I'll be doing a teleseminar in sales letter writing with an info marketer in a few weeks, and sending samples to direct mail ad agencies.
And finally but not leastly, my novel, which I'm still planning, writing, and researching, after a bit of a false start (I decided to go backward and start the book earlier in the chain of events).
So, that's my 2007. What's yours?
