Where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday I held the Triangulation: End of the Rainbow proof in my grubby hands. Now I have boxes of them ready to debut at Confluence tonight.
We’re going to kick off the proceedings with a 90 minute session in which I’ll talk about Triangulation, our reading and selection process, the challenges of selling an anthology of (mostly) original fiction. Young writers in the Alpha program will participate, perhaps reading from their own work, and Amy Treadwell will be reading an excerpt from her story as well.
On Saturday evening, we’re hosting a Launch Party (Willow room, 9pm-???) where we will sell books and hob nob with folks. Peter Beagle should be stopping by and we’re hoping to lure Wen Spencer as well. If that’s not enough, free snacks and soft drinks should seal the deal. There’s also a cash bar. With luck, we’ll convince people they’re a bit tipsy and seeing double when they purchase two copies of the anthology. Don’t worry, it’ll clear up in the morning
Contributor copies will go out next week. Contributors who would like extra copies may order them at a 50% discount. I’ll be in touch about that as soon as the Confluence dust clears a bit.
On another topic, I received a very welcome phone call yesterday. I can’t reveal the substance just yet, but there’s a good chance I’ll be whooping again in this blog soon.
