My Albuquerque Bubonicon Schedule

This week's Writing Excuses podcast episode is titled "How to Start the Next One." Dan, Mary, Howard, and I talk about how to move from writing one project to another, specifically something that's not a sequel or is very different in tone from your previous book.

Tomorrow I'm flying out to Albuquerque to be Guest of Honor at Bubonicon, which is a great small convention with a large number of big-name pros. My schedule is below. I'll be at Dragon*Con next week.
