Writer’s Conferences and Apotheosis Reviews

March 23, 2011

I will be presenting this weekend at The 20th Annual Western Reserve Spring Writers’ Conference: Saturday, March 26, 2011 8:30 a.m. – 1: 30 p.m.
My session will be 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.

PLOTTING SCI-FI AND FANTASY: Plotting is the engine that makes a story go. You can populate your story with the most interesting characters in the world, have a gorgeous prose style, and present the most intricate world-building imaginable, but if the story has a weak or absent plot, it’ll just sit there inert, failing to engage the reader. S. Andrew Swann will present the questions you’ll need to ask in a SF/F story—and in fiction in general—in order to rev up that idling plot engine.

In other news, Heather Grove has posted three nice reviews of the Apotheosis trilogy over at Errant Dreams Reviews.

    I’m missing something…Angel in Messiah…when did she join the proteans? Or is she a reconstruction from a memory of a descendent of Nohar? Will you write more books that fill the gap between the current Moreau series and the founding of the House Of Rajasthan?

    • The Angel avatar came from the Dolbrians, not the Proteans, so she’s of a piece with the other historical simulations.

      I don’t have current projects for that timeframe, but it’s always a possibility.
