I'm off conventioning. This weekend, I'm at NineWorlds in Heathrow, and if you're also going to be there, you can come and see me read an extract from my debut novel A Wicked Thing at the New Voices panel on Saturday August 9th at 10:15pm. (Please come! I could read to an empty room, but it'd be better with people there :P).

Then next weekend I'm at Worldcon in London. Not reading or panelling this time, just going from talk to talk with my notebook, learning things about writing and feminism in genre fiction and hopefully getting into George RR Martin's reading from Winds of Winter.

I may manage to post some stuff from the conventions next week, but otherwise, FeministFiction is on hiatus until after the 18th. Fingers crossed I'll have some interesting discussions to report on when I return!

In the meantime, check out the Women Who Kick Ass panel from SDCC, with Natalie Dormer, Maisie Williams, Katey Sagal, Sarah Paulson, Tatiana Maslany and Nicole Beharie talking about feminism, genre television, and the media.
