Ebook jump

For those of you scoring at home, ebook sales just jumped to 50% of total earnings on my last statement for Way of the Wolf. Total sales down a bit from last year, and last year was pretty horrible.

OryCon Day One

I'm Writer Guest of Honor at OryCon in Portland. They've been very good to us, flexible about me traveling with family and so on. Jim Pavelec from back home Chicago way is Artist Guest of Honor, so I finally, after who knows how many cons together, got to be on a panel with Jim ("Cover Art in the Age of Ebooks" but it should have been called "Artists and Authors Bitch about the Cover Art Process").

The kids are traveling well. We received several nice compliments on the flight about how good the baby was (Chats nursed her during the ascent and descent so there was no crying, but the Sprog had a very tough descent). We've been traveling around in a Dodge Grand Caravan, and I like it a lot for Family Utility reasons but it would be tough to street park in Oak Park.

Portland's a nice city. It reminds me of La Crosse except with tall buildings. Lots of bicyclists to watch out for. About half of them seem very cognizant of road safety and wear appropriate gear, another percentage throws on a bright shirt or hat, and the rest -- well, I'm glad I was able to negotiate the city at night without killing anyone.

Plenty of Steampunk at the con. Steampunk costuming is really taking over. Wish I'd brought my goggles.

I don't have an official reading or signing, so I've just been doing a catch-as-catch-can signing books after panels. I'm surprised at the number of people showing up with both series. Usually it's just one or the other.

Chats has been stuck in the room a little too much, eating room service and keeping everyone occupied while I do my panels. After this is all over we're heading to the coast for some real family time.

Let's see, next panel is on Apocalyptic Storytelling. That should be a fun thing to face at 10AM on a Saturday morning.
