I will be at OryCon this year as a pro-panelist and as part of the Apex Book Company table in the Dealers room. Not only that, I'm going to be selling GRANTS PASS anthologies there as well. (I just realized that I need to do flyers about upcoming books... I have six scheduled to come out in 2010.)

Come out and see me and the rest of the OryCon Apex crew. We'd love to talk with you.
