I just attended my first Icon at the University of Stonybrook. Icon is a science fiction conference with all kinds of things going on including book signings, readings, panel discussions, etc. - - It's not just for authors and filmmakers, as there were of a ton of steampunkers dressed in retro Jules Vernes kinds of outfits all over the campus. Great Fun! Thsi is a link to the news magazine The Westhampton-HamptonBaysPatch which ran an article about me attending.

The opportunity to discuss my novel, The Manhattan Prophet, with other authors, as well as fantasy and science fiction buffs, was tremendous. Part of my quest to find a literary agent who will help me to take this book to the next level.

Thanks to all the people who made it happen for me, Bill Freedman, Jennifer Adams, Ben Parris, Ken Altabef and many others. If you ever get a chance to attend one of these (they have Icons all over the country) you will be pleasantly surprised.

It really got my mojo going - -
