In a concerted effort to improve my functionality as a shameless self-promoter, I am turning over a new leaf: telling people about things involving me before they happen.
I am going to be at Readercon next weekend (July 5th – 8th). That wouldn’t be anything new, except that for the first time I’ll be appearing in a non-fanboy capacity. No, seriously. It’s not like my name is going to show up on the participants list or anything, but I do get to take part in an Interfictions discussion panel AND an Interfictions fiction reading. Yeah. Crazy. I don’t quite know what to do with myself.
Matter of fact maybe you all can advise me. The people in charge tell me I can read anything I want that I think has interstitial qualities. Now, I’ve already given a reading of an “The Utter Proxmity of God” teaser, and sooner or later a much better-quality version of that teaser is going to show up on the Interfictions blog as part of a podcast series. I love reading aloud, and it seems a shame not to take this glorious opportunity to read something else, something new. But anything else I read will be an unpublished story…unless I read one of those two semipro things I sold ages ago and everybody forgot about. So do I just read “The Utter Proximity of God” again or what?
