Interview with Adventures in Science Fiction Publishing

Good friend Verna McMullin and I at Prosperos Parkside

Adventures in Science Fiction Publishing has released a podcast interview of me and Mary C. Chambers (author of SHAPERS VEIL). From the web site:

"We present a triple header of small press publishing goodness. First, Brent chats with M.C. Chambers, author of SHAPER’S VEIL, and Karin Gastreich, author of EOLYN, in a joint interview live from Brent’s basement. Brent is braver than Shaun or Moses, who learned long ago to never take authors home with you! . . . . That’s a joke, folks, in case that’s not obvious. Chambers and Gastreich discuss science based magic systems, why they chose to write fantasy when both their works rely on scientific principle, and their experiences in small press publishing."

Gastreich and Chambers Interview on AISFP

The interview itself lasts about half an hour, so I'm not going to take up your time with a whole lot of other news for this week.  Just a few announcements.

We had a great afternoon at the signing yesterday in Prosperos Parkside Books, Blue Springs, Missouri.  Many thanks to Eve Brackenbury for hosting the event and for providing those great cookies.

The next booksigning for EOLYN will be at the Campbell Conference at the University of Kansas in Lawrence.  I'm even on the list of special guests for 2011!  This is going to be a great weekend get together of authors and editors in the field of science fiction and fantasy.  On Saturday, July 9, from 12:45pm to 1:45pm, we will all be at the autograph session in the Jayhawk Ink Bookstore.

On Saturday, July 23 at 3pm, Who Else! Books in Denver, Colorado, will host a reading and signing for EOLYN.

Eric T. Reynolds and I may also make a visit to Wichita in early August; I'll keep you posted as our plans firm up.

I hope you enjoy the podcast interview on AISFP.  Have a great week!
