My 2011 Worldcon Schedule

We are on the road to Reno! The puppeteers, (Lance and Jodi) and I left yesterday afternoon after rehearsal.  We’ll be performing on Friday at the convention.

Normally, I only post the public things on my schedule, but this time I’ve included things like rehearsals and SFWA board meetings so you can see why the chances of spotting me on the floor of the con are very slim.

Sunday, I catch a 6 a.m. flight to go to Michigan so I can record two new October Daye books by Seanan McGuire. Which is why you won’t see me at the con on Sunday, either.

Send my puppet company to Worldcon

So, look. Renovation has invited my puppet company to perform at Worldcon.  They don’t have the budget to bring us there.  I’ll already be there, but it’s a three person show and puppet shows are expensive.

But we’ve been given a blessing to run a Kickstarter campaign to get there

Not only do you have the opportunity to fund an award-winning puppet company, but should this succeed, you’ll also get to see the VP of SFWA in a white spandex bodysuit. Yeah… That’s right. We perform this show in white spandex. Spandex. Bodysuit.

Also, puppets. Lots of puppets.

We have nifty rewards! Please help send Other Hand Productions to Worldcon.

Free Buttons! is this nifty site where authors can submit reprints and readers can create their own ideal anthology. In print. It’s great if you want to sample a bunch of people and prefer reading on paper than on the screen.

I ‘ve got several stories up there and they are doing this cool promotional.  All through WorldCon, writers from Anthology Builder will be giving out pins, like this one.  But that’s not the best part.

AnthologyBuilder representatives will be giving out gift certificates and free anthologies to anyone sighted wearing an AnthologyBuilder badge.

How do you get one? Ask me about living on a planet with rings.
