Two Appearances

A quick update on two local appearances in the DFW area.

I’ll be at the Euless Public Library this Thursday evening, along with several other fabulous writers.

And this weekend I will also be at Fencon, a local con. It was my first con ever, and one I heartily recommend.

Plug-In Humor (writing)

The comedian Paul F. Tompkins talked about “Joke Stealing” once. It’s an occasional accusation among professional comedians. “Hey, you stole my joke.” His commentary boiled down to two thoughts:

First, your average person will never care about Joke Stealing, even in a professional capacity because for most people, humor is entirely joke stealing. Someone hears something funny and repeats it later. They almost never attribute it to the source they heard it from, and it would be weird if they did. So while there might be a case against stealing jokes in a professional capacity, it doesn’t really fly with comedy amateurs, which is pretty much everyone not standing on a stage.

Too Many Curses

I love Too Many Curses, my fifth novel. It is, however, probably my most obscure and least loved. There are a few reasons for this, but most practically, it was my last novel with Tor Publishing, which meant it didn’t get a lot of love from the publisher. They did eventually release it in mass market and on, for which I am grateful. But it was my last book with the publisher, and I can’t blame them for not being terribly excited by it.

“It’s better to think the best of everyone and be wrong than assume the worst and be right.”

–Nessy, Too Many Curses


We are an inherently suspicious species, but it is, often, a dishonest form of suspicion. We don’t mistrust and suspect on evidence but on our own preconceived notions and ideas. Once you know where to look for it, you see it everywhere.
