    I wish I could hear you talk. You live in texas you say? My uncle lives there, but I haven’t been there since I was in elementary school. All I remember is holding our breaths as we ran from the car to the air conditioned house because it was *too fucking hot* to breathe. aha.
    So this difference between Fantasy and the Paranormal.  Fantasy is something imaginary and/or scientifically impossible after detailed studies and research, and the paranormal is an occurrance that cannot be explained at the current time in history due to the fact the studies and research is still an ongoing process.. correct?
    Man, wish I could be there.

  2. You know I gave up your genre(s) of literature (urban fantasy paranormal sci-fi and more) long ago.  It had nothing at all to do with the validity of said genres but more to do with my changing tastes.  And I may have given up on the genre(s) but not your writing.  I am always impressed, engaged and downright entertained with all of your output.  So I would have loved to have gone to this convention to hear you speak, and even better would be to hear you speak at the bar after I hear you speak, so to speak.
