Y’all may know that I’m something of a hermit. It’ s not that I don’t like leaving the house, hanging out with people, doing conventions, etc. It’s just that being a writer and artist is not something one normally does with other people (aside from the occasional bullpen/studio situation, like we had at TSR). So, in order to churn out books and art, it’s kindof necessary to hole up in my studio and be alone.
Last year, I managed to get out to a number of conventions/events, and I’ll be doing a few this year as well. However, the easiest way to find me out and about will probably be to attend the movie series I’m hosting at our church. (Yes, I can go into a church without bursting into flames, and you probably can, too.) Plymouth Congregational UCC has a wonderful sound and projection system, and I’m taking advantage of it by running films there on the 3rd Friday (usually) of every month, starting on January 20th (next week as I write this).
We’re kicking off this year’s schedule with Jackie Chan’s First Strike. (Notice the clever “kicking off” pun?) And I hope you’ll consider joining us — especially if you’ve never seen a man defend himself with a folding ladder (in one of the great action fights of all time). This is the one place you can be sure I’ll be showing myself in public on a regular basis this year.
Hope to see you at the movies!
