This video reminded me of some of the stories I've seen that have rather sharply juxtaposed elements, some working well, some working horribly most working for only a very small slice of the market. I suspect this video falls into one of the latter to categories.

Thanks Mel

I booked my flight today, I'll be there for the whole con, and most of the next day. I also managed to get my bio sent in so I may actually have to do some work while there.

How many others are going?

I'm pretty sure I mentioned once or twice that I'd be at Ravencon this weekend. I know it says so on my website. Now I just wish real life hadn't gotten in the way of getting ready for the con until tonight.

A well...

I'll be looking at some of the slush this weekend as well. Anyone who submitted to the correct inbox for Winter Workout who has not received a final response yet should drop me a message via the contact form on my website.
Super secret subtle hint below:

For those who have received their reply, the shorter and more positive it was the more i liked it. If i said something about there being a better place to start the book, I may have really liked it if that was the largest comment on it.

My client, and great friend Dave Freer has been selected to be the Guest of Honor for Lunacon 2009. So, for three days in March, there's only one place to be, and that's Ryebrook NY the 20-22. The rumor mill has generated the rumors that certain of Dave's coauthors will be in attendance.

I declare a Bittercon for this weekend. It will start at 3pm eastern time on 2/15 and run through 2/17 at 10pm et or so...
What con am I bitter about missing? Boskone! So for those interested in joining, pick a topic or two, post! Then post a link here in the comments for other people to find.
Let the madness begin. The Winter Workout is here and you may now submit. You may also tell ten friends, or even twenty.

I have no idea if half of the people i know in the area are here. At this time of the day I only know that I'm here because my name tag said so. There seem to be less people people here than last year, and it also seems slightly better organized, both are acceptable. The Con Suite and the Green Room are in adequate spaces. And i shall be a good dooby and donate blood in a couple hours. I spent most of last evening catching up with Mr Shirt, Sara Harvey, Wombat and a couple others who's names will come to me about three minutes after i post this message. Today is all schmoozing for me as the only panel i'd considered crashing is at the same time I go to feed the vampires. It appears that the amazing Shadesong is here somewhere, I may even have almost seen her at breakfast this morning. As i didn't have my contacts in and it was before eight am, theres just no telling.

More later

Effective immediately The OnyxHawke Agency will now begin accepting non-fiction in three categories.
History, Political Science/Commentary and Psychology

All non fiction books must include at time of submission:
  • Educational credentials
  • Glossary of terms and acronyms.
  • Must be referenced. All books submitted with only a list of sources and no foot/end notes or other in text references will be rejected as plagiarism
  • Must have as little as possible in the way of references from any of the contributors
  • Must include in a separate file the complete contact information for all contributors and include their educational credentials and publishing credits.
  • No "pop psychology" or self help books.
  • There really is a line between history and political science, please keep your opinions out of the main text of the history books.
  • Desired sales positioning: general non fiction, text book, other.
My website will be updated with this info as well as soon as I remember to get my wonderful webmistress to do so.

Interesting article on the brain, autism, and Asperger's.

How the grey and white wrinkly lump works.

Trippy brains.

What do you mean brain dead?

Brain repair!

Male brain, female brain, your brain my brain, wow brain (pdf), [Bad username or unknown identity: defending the brain,  no brain.]
I hope everyone has a safe, boring uneventful trip to and from wherever you get together for Thanksgiving. Have a great meal, and a better time with those you care about.

Morning. It's been less than three hours since I got out of bed. Thanks to two cups of coffee, and as many quick walks in the forty or so degree air, i have achieved artificial, and shaky alertness. World Fantasy Con is it's usual, quietly bustling self, replete with the industries name players. L. E. Modesitt just walked by, The Nielsen Haydens are in attendance. David Coe, Kristen Britain, Laura Gilman and Elizabeth Bear are wandering about, Jeremy Larsen was decked out in a zoot suit last night, and Lois Bujold actually remembered me!

I've run into old friends, Sarah and Dan Hoyt, Darwin Garrison, and Kate Paulk. The fabulous ladies of Carpe Libris have brought their wit and wonder to the masses. Gene Wolfe, and Patrick O'Leary are talking next to me. The fabulous Catie Murphy and her husband Ted survived a terror ride back to their hotel last night, and are still speaking to the driver. Jennifer Jackson, and Lucienne Diver are of course turning heads and making agents with lesser lists jealous, per usual. Tempest Bradford, and Jenna Waterford are having a spectacular time and bringing smiles to those with the wit to catch theirs.

Lois Bujold read from chapter five of Passage, the third Sharing Knife book. It's due out the end of April 08.

More news, as I invent it.
I shall post three links.

These links are not safe for work.

I repeat NSFW!

The first is a link to something every  writer, editor, and agent should be required to read yearly.
The second is a review and critical analysis of a history on American foreign policy since the end of the Cold War.
The third is a video that is just plain funny.

The very short report is that i had fun, and now I'm incredibly tired.

Onward to the long report.


Good Con, go if you can.

Nearest airports are probably Albany and Hartford


Sara Harvey got engaged!

Its amazing since last night I've been on five panels and they still haven't thrown me out!

Voltaire is a very interesting speaker, although I did miss his concert.

Catie Murphy gave a fantastic interview, and several fun panels.

Sara Harvey is being herself!

More later.
