Going to Dallas this weekend

Well, I'll be in Dallas this weekend as a guest of ConDFW V. I'll be on two panels, both on Saturday.

The first will be in Panel Room 2 (Magnolia) at 10 a.m. "Escape from the Slush Pile Part Two: Periodicals": Hosted by Lou Antonelli, Dusty Rainbolt, Christopher Fulbright, Teresa Patterson, and K.D. Wentworth. Industry pros discuss periodicals and magazines as a route to breaking into the fiction market.

The second will be in Panel Room 3 (Mesquite) at 2 p.m. "World Wide Writing: Using the Internet to Further Your Career": Hosted by Lou Antonelli, Renee Brown, Scott Cupp, Rhonda Eudaly, Rie Sheridan and T.M. Wagner. How can you use online markets to get your stories read? What sites really work and what sites merely lurk? Is there a difference between the fiction that works for the web and fiction that works for the page?

This will be the third time I've attended ConDFW. It was the first Con I ever attended, in 2003. I also was able to make it last year, in 2005.

I'm looking forward to it.

Slush Pile Mambo

Right now I have a dozen short stories sitting in various slushpiles awaiting decisions, and eight stories accepted and pending publication...
