“Gibbitt” Rhys-Jones Tod McCoy William (Morrigan) Lehman  Whether you are sending stories down what feels like a black hole of unappreciative markets, or struggling with making changes to the novel you’ve been living with night and day for years, writers don’t always know what to make of editors. Editors, at their best, are partners with writers, not adversaries — even though it can sometimes feel that way. Come hear what editors think their job is and what they can do for you.

That’s it.  That’s all I’m scheduled!

I have learned that if you’re Head of ANYTHING on a convention… don’t give yourself too many panels.  I am the Head of Programming for Rustycon, and after 3 conventions, I have learned.

Rustycon ( is a non-profit science fiction/fantasy convention that is by the fans and their love of all things science fiction and fantasy, FOR the fans of the same.


This year’s Guests of Honor are Robin Hobb, Bill Doran, and Michaela Eaves.  We have some SPECTATULAR Pros and panelists, including a last minute one for gamers, Bruce Cordell. A week ago, he said he’d like to come, but only for Saturday!

Please check it out!
