What is the first thing you think of when you hear the word “fan”?

Shael Hawman knits fantastic costumes. For BayCon 2017, she knitted a Star Wars flight suit!
Last year, Denise Tanaka was Wonder Woman. This year, she is … faceless.

I will be at BayCon 2017 on May 26, 27, and 28, participating in a few panels and lusting after the goodies in the dealer’s room. BayCon’s theme this year is Dystopia/Utopia, into which Beneath the Skin fits rather perfectly, seeing as it’s a romantic space opera set in a dystopian future. If you are going to attend the convention, let me know, and maybe we can meet up someplace!
My three panels so far:
Writing a Dystopia While Living in One (on Friday)
Creative Hobbies for Writers (on Friday)
Love During Wartime (on Saturday)
Teresa Edgerton will be there, too. And so will Jennifer Carson. And Denise Tanaka. And Carrie Sessarego. And Gail Carriger. And more!
