Cory Skerry, fellow Bellingham Writers Group member, has asked to use my covers as good examples in a workshop on what self-publishers should do for cover art.

Chuckanut Writer’s Conference

Enjoyed last night’s Chuckanut Radio Hour at Bellingham High School with the usual suspects, plus The Rejections and Trailing Spouse. Some great music and fun.

Looking forward to a conference of learning, listening and literature. Feeling a bit like the odd man out as I suspect most attendees write memoirs, poetry, literary and mainstream fiction. As a definite Speculative Fiction writer (though I share a book of poetry with my mom Colleen A. Slater) I’m intent on paying forward as a volunteer and listening to business and marketing ideas.
