It’s been a tough few years for most of us. We’ve endured and mostly survived an ongoing pandemic, though many are still reeling from the loss of family and friends to the disease. Here in our household, we’ve all had Covid, with varying degrees of severity, but we’re all still here, thankfully. But like many others, we’ve been isolated–rarely going out, rarely seeing friends, etc. Marsheila (Marcy) Rockwell and I exhibited at the Tucson Festival of Books in March, which allowed us to see lots of folks for the first time.
Now our favorite comic convention, Tucson Comic-Con, is back after a couple of years off, and we’re both featured guests. We’ll be at tables AA 129/144, right on the main center aisle, for the weekend, except Saturday at 1:30 PM when we’re on a panel on “How to Write a Novel” with our good friend James Owen.
Marcy is expecting to have copies of her new Marvel novel, the well-reviewed Sisters of Sorcery, which otherwise doesn’t go on sale in the US until September 20. She’s also been selling short stories and poems right and left, and will have new books containing some of those, as well as copies of her older works.
My newest release is Tarzan and the Forest of Stone, and I’ll have copies of the paperback and hardcover editions. It’ll be the first opportunity for anyone to get it signed. I’ll also have the Cody Cavanaugh Western series and much, much more–some comics/graphic novels as well as prose.
Our oldest son David Mariotte–an editor at IDW Publishing, where I was the first editor-in-chief many years ago–will be there with some works he’s written and edited, along with his partner, artist and bookseller Rebecca Ann. They’re at AA033.
Visit the convention’s website for all the details. We hope to see you there!
