2017 Appearances and Signings

Feb 3-5, 2017: Seattle WA
Foolscap Patty will be the guest of honor at Foolscap, which is a convention we've not attended previously. I've heard very good things about it, and it's supposed to be a little different than other conventions. We're excited to be part of it. You can get more information at Foolscap.org.

Patty will once again be traveling with Anne Bishop for the signing tour, March 7 to 11. You can get your copy of Etched in Bone signed at the same time as Silence Fallen.

April 21-23, 2017: Gold Coast Australia
Supernova pop culture expo. Yeah, that's right. We're finally goin' down under mates. The southern paradise where the people are friendly, but absolutely everything else is venomous and wants to kill you. We're assured that the hotel pool is kept mostly free of saltwater crocs. The funnel web spiders generally only wander about at night, and usually during warmer months, so don't sleep in the lawn and you'll be fine. The snakes, on the other hand, should be at their best for our visit!
Honestly, we're not worried about the toxic wildlife, in fact there are a huge number of beautiful creatures I'd love to see there. My parents lived in Canberra for a couple of years, and absolutely loved it. This is a trip we're really looking forward to! In fact, we're bringing the full team: Patty, Mike and Ann. None of us wanted to miss it. You can find more information at The Supernova web site.
April 28-30: Melbourne Australia
Supernova pop culture expo. Supernova, like comic con in the states, happens in various cities in Australia. After our Gold Coast visit, we're going to head straight to Melbourne and continue the party. Hooray! Again, the place for information is: The Supernova web site
August 11-13: Spokane, WA
Spocon has been one of our favorite local-ish conventions. We haven't managed to attend for a couple of years, but we'll be there this year. Patty will bring stuff to read, and I'll bring a guitar, and we'll have way too much fun. Their website is Spocon.org.
September 1-4: Atlanta, GA
DragonCon We attended our first DragonCon last year. It was amazing, but my favorite part was touring the art show with Dan Dos Santos. I can't be trusted with money at art shows, and last year we were pretty tight. I'm hoping to sneak a checkbook into my luggage for this year's trip! Turns out that Southern hospitality isn't just talk, and this is a huge convention that feels friendly and comfortable. We don't know how they do it, but we're coming back for a second helping! Their website is dragoncon.org
October Somtime: Fan Nexus in Spokane WA
We don't really know anything, but this would be run by some wonderful people and dear friends. If they get it launched we'll definitely be attending.
October 20-22: Worthington OH
Ohio Valley Filk Fest This is a little different venue for us. Filk is sort of "The Music of Fandom". Long ago, it was largely folk songs with science-fiction or fantasy lyrics, and now it's evolved into it's own quirky genre. We occasionally host filk sings at our house, and a plethora of musicians show up to make music and sing for the night. I'm a third-rate guitarist, but I'm loud, and sometimes that's enough! Anyway, our local-ish filk group, Interfilk has arranged to send me to OVFF as a guest this year. It should be fun! You can find more information at www.ovff.org.
