I don’t travel as much as I used to. I get more work done at home, and I love my family and prefer to spend as much time with them as I can. Of course I also enjoy meeting fans and friends abroad, so I do get out a bit.

FOR THE RECORD
Here’s where I’ve been. This is not a complete list (it’s currently missing about ten years of stuff) and it’s not a great way to predict where I’ll be, but patterns may emerge…
- January 17-19: Legendary ConFusion, Troy, Michigan — no booth, just panels, and BarCon, and Author D&D
- February 14-16: RadCon, Pasco, Washington — merch in the dealer’s room, but I’ll mostly be on panels, not signing
- April 17-19: Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience, Salt Lake City, Utah — We’ll have a booth in the main expo hall, and I’ll be on several panels
- June 6-8: Lock & Load Gamefest, Bellvue, Washington — no booth. Just panels, and playing games!
- July 3-6: Westercon 67, Salt Lake City, Utah — We’ll have a booth in the dealer’s room, and the Writing Excuses crew will be recording numerous episodes with the convention guests.
- August 14-17: GenCon Indy, Indianapolis, Indiana — Sharing a booth with Tracy Hickman and Jim Zub, #1437. I’ll also be doing panels, and might even be play-testing the Schlock Mercenary RPG some evening…
- September 4-6: Salt Lake Comic Con, Salt Lake City, Utah — We’ll have a booth in the expo hall, and I’ll be on several panels. This one’s local, so we should have all the merchandise. All of it!

- August 19-23: Sasquan, the th World Science Fiction Convention, Spokane, Washington. I don’t know yet whether I’ll have a booth full of merchandise. This show has historically been good for that, but coming this close to GenCon I just don’t know that I have it in me.
- September 20-27: The Out of Excuses Workshop and Retreat, on a ship in the Caribbean. I’m one of the hosts, and this will be my very first cruise. No lie
