But truth be told, my anger over this has dissipated rather quickly. Why? The ACFW is the ACFW. It started as the American Christian Romance Writers and they changed the Romance to Fiction but I believe more and more that we spec-fic writers need to just find our own group. Or better yet, make our own group. Katherine Coble states that point rather well in a recent blog post. So, there. You have two blogs to check out if you want to talk about the unfairness of the CBA. I'm done with it for now.
Necronomicon next month. I'll be on six writing panels, talking about:
- The Resurgence of Fairy Tales
- How Has E-Pub Changed the Game?
- You Call It Urban Fantasy. I Call it Horror.
- Developing Rules for Magic
- Getting Started: Strong Female Characters in F&SF
- It's a Hive of Scum & Villainy: Writing the Evildoer

Erm.....yeah. There CAN be too much...
And me with my favorite lion:
