A Ferrett In Chicago (At A Convention!) (This Weekend!)

If you’ve got no plans this weekend and want to see a Ferrett, I’ll be at Capricon in Chicago. What’s special about that?

1) It’s my first time visiting a convention in Chicago. So if you’ve wanted to meet me, well, I’ll be there.

2) My time-travelling soup battle book The Sol Majestic is coming out in June, and I’ll be reading a special excerpt from it there. I’m doing a solo reading, and I’ll be bringing two advance review copies of the book to give away to people who show up and want it.

(Alternatively, if you order the book in advance, you’ll get a signed bookplate and other free swag. But you gotta preorder soon.)

So here’s my schedule, in the unlikely event you’d like to intersect with a Ferrett:

Friday at 5:30 p.m.: Literary Economics
The Sol Majestic is about the running of a space-bound restaurant and so has a surprising amount of economics in it. Plus, I’ll be recommending the shit out of Daniel Abraham’s The Dagger and The Coin series.

Saturday at 11:30 a.m.: I Read From My Book THE SOL MAJESTIC
I have no idea whether anyone will attend. Maybe it will be you.

Saturday at 1:00 p.m.: Ferrett Signs Books!
Ditto.

Saturday at 2:30 p.m.: Social Media and Mental Health
You may have noticed my social anxiety has impacted my blogging habits a bit of late, and I’ll be discussing how to work the two on this panel.

Saturday at 7:00 p.m.: Hipster Cthulhu
In which I shout the praises of Cassandra Khaw and Matt Ruff.

Sunday at 10:00 a.m.: The Business of Writing
A.k.a., “How to make whatever money you can effectively at books.” It’s a learning process. Come learn.

Anyway. I’ll be new at that convention, and nervous, so if you see me – I’m easy to spot, check the fingernails – please say hi. I’ll be happy to talk to you, if I’m not on my way to a panel.
