ALA and a Secret Project

I’ll be at the American Library Association Conference in Chicago this coming Sunday.

  • 10 – 11 a.m., Signing at the Penguin Booth
  • 2 – 2:45 p.m., Presenting/Q&A/Signing at the Pop Top Stage

This will be my first time at the ALA Conference, and I’m looking forward to it. Particularly given the rather librarian-centric focus of the current series 🙂


I apologize, but apparently I’ve become one of those authors. The ones with the Secret Projects who tease you about how they’re working on a Nifty New Thing, but never share the details.

This wasn’t planned; I was basically invited to do a project that sounded like a lot of fun, paid reasonably well, and would let me try something new. So after looking at my schedule, crunching some wordcount numbers, talking to the family and a writer friend, I said yes.

And I’m not allowed to talk about the details.

I have no idea when that’s going to change. I may or may not be able to talk about it by the end of the year. Rest assured though, I’ll babble away the instant I’m permitted.

In the meantime, I’ll just say that I’m excited about the project, and it means I’m going to be a very busy writer for foreseeable future. It should make for an interesting year or two.

I don’t know how this will affect things like the blogging or my ability to respond to emails in a timely fashion. With only 24 hours in a day, I’ve had to shift some priorities around a bit.

But hopefully it will all be worth it.
