Balticon 2016, also known as Balticon50, has come and gone. Per usual, it was a delightfully busy time for me.

I had an opportunity to chat with author friends, meet fans of my writing and art, read from my books, sign books, participate on panels, and present a writing workshop. In addition, I attended eSpec Book’s fabulous publication party, Gail Z. Martin’s publication party (she’s a wonderful reader – I so enjoyed listening to her fiction), an anthology meeting, and the SFWA meeting.

As a George RR Martin fan, I was happy to have a book signed by the brilliant author of Game of Thrones. (Yes, I’m quite taken with his use of language in the book series and eagerly await the next book).

Plus, I had the chance to meet and learn more about some of my fellow members of Broad Universe (women who write science fiction, fantasy, and horror).

All in all, it was a fabulous weekend. Many thanks to Baltimore Science Fiction Society for inviting me to participate. I hope you’ll want me back in 2017.

Now, I’m back to writing and revising. A new story, new book, and/or new painting is always on my to-do list.

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.” – Tyrion Lannister, A Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin

This is one of my favorite quotes. It took me many years to embrace the person I am. Being a little different from my peers, and sometimes being teased for those differences, can make it challenging, But now that I accept who I am, I feel stronger. And I say, it’s okay to be a woman who enjoys reading, writing, and painting science-fiction, fantasy, and dark fantasy works!

Plus, since I’m currently reading the Game of Thrones books (in hopes that a new book is close to publication), I wanted to celebrate this fine fantasy series.

To my readers: Take this quote to heart, and embrace the person you are.
