May Happenings

Okay, May is zooming by. Earlier this month, I was at the Hudson Children's Book Festival - which was great fun. I blogged about it here. Since I came back, I got romance novel number two (written under a pen name) on contract and am waiting for the edit letter from my lovely editor for that - should have it any day now. I have a manuscript on sub and am working on romance number three while waiting patiently :). BEA is in a couple weeks, and events at my kids' school are revving up as we start winding down the school year.

At the end of the month, I will be at Wiscon, [deep, movie-announcer voice] the leading feminist sci-fi convention [/deep, movie-announcer voice]. I'll be on three panels - Race Basics; What is Feminist Romance?; and Should Children Be Sheltered from Violence?. That last one I am moderating. So, if you are in or around Madison, WI, please send me an email! I'd love to meet you if my schedule permits.

So close to me, WisCon should be moved to Illinois :)

Have a great and fun-filled May. And congrats on the 2nd romance contract!

I wish I was near Wisconsin. I would love to hear that panel on violence. It is such a critical topic. What are your views?

@ Adventures - I started writing my views for you and just couldn't stop! My comment became *way* longer than the original post, so I had to remove it. I might put it up as a separate post if I get a chance, but I will definitely do a post-Wiscon wrap up where I will share my views, as well as the interesting points brought up at the panel. It is certainly shaping up to be an interesting one - especially since the panelists seem to have such different experiences and views.

@ Miss A - Ack - so close and yet so far! One of these days, though...

Have been buried out here in California. Wanted to tell you I saw Shine turned out on our library shelf as "pick of the week." That was so exciting. Glad you're keeping busy :-)

Best, Lee

Neesha, I'm going to be at WisCon, too, and on a panel and a reading! Can't wait to see you there. :D
