ZORAN ZIVKOVIC GUEST BLOGGING
Zoran Zivkovic will be guest blogging on my blog next week in honor of the U.S. publication of his story suite Seven Touches of Music. His first post will be on Monday.
I'm at the SIBA Convention in Orlando, which is at the rather insane Gaylord Resort and Convention Center. It has scale replicas of other parts of Florida, like the old fort in St. Augustine, Key West (complete with salt water lagoon), and in general is like some kind of insanely dysfunctional biosphere. I don't even want to know how much it costs to keep this place lit up for 24 hours.
Tor is treating us well and last night we had the Shriek party at Mark Wingenfeld's place. Mark's been a big supporter from way back and he threw a great party. Mark is also Kathmandu Books, an indie bookseller.
Everyone at SIBA has been very nice and I have tentative commitments for bookstore signings/readings in Miami and West Palm Beach as a result. In addition, Ann and I may be editing yet another anthology. And it was also confirmed that I will be one of Trinity Prep School's visiting writers, probably in April 2007.
