Call me “Mister November” because my piece on writing antiheroes is the feature article for the November issue of the UK magazine, THE WRITERS’ FORUM.  I’ve never had the cover story before so I’m quite chuffed that my piece inspired the issue’s cover art.  You can snag a copy from WH Smith’s in the UK and Barnes & Noble in the US.  Alternatively, you can order a copy from the publisher.

I’m going to be the keynote speaker at this year’s Southwest Washington Writers’ Conference in September.  I’ll be presenting a workshop on plotting and outlining too.  I’ll be posting my itinerary when it’s finalized.  If you’re interested in attending, they’re taking signups now.

This conference might be part of a mini-tour of Washington State.  I’m trying to firm up some other events.
