Hubby and writing partner Jeffrey J.Mariotte and I will be guests at Westercon this year, which is being held in Tempe July 1-4. Below is my schedule (Jeff will post his on his blog). Please note that I may miss any or all of these because of excruciating back pain (and also because I technically have no PTO, having used it all on said back pain). That said, I will attempt to give people as much advance notice as possible if I'm not going to make a scheduled panel, but it'll probably be on FB/Twitter, as those are easier to update from my phone.

Sunday, July 2
12:30-1:30, Dolores Room

2-3, Cloister

Monday, July 3

Hope to see some of you there!

Everything Else

As I alluded to above, my back pain has increased significantly and my doctor has referred me to a neurosurgeon, who I will see at the end of July. In the meantime, my employer has been gracious enough to let me work mostly from home, which is a blessing, because I can't drive with the amount of pain medication I have to take just to be able to be upright for part of the day. It gets a little worse every day, which is why I'm not even sure I'll make Westercon at this point, but hope springs eternal.

Oh, and we're thinking about adopting a rescue kitty, because I could use a little ball of fur to cuddle up with me on the days when the pain is so bad I can't get out of bed. We've filled out the application and are waiting to hear back. She's adorable, of course, but the thing that sealed the deal for us? Her name is Wonder Woman. No clearer sign than that, amiright? Heh.
