Our next meeting is SUNDAY April 25th on Publishing 101 - NOTE: This was a day change the meeting venue was not available on Saturday so please note the new day.
Also, for those who have read Michael's Avempartha it has been in a "March Madness" contest where 64 books of 2009 were pitted one on one in rounds. It has made it through 5 rounds against some big names:
The Enchantment Emporium by Tanya Huff
Finch by Jeff VanderMeer
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest (Hugo Award Nominee)
Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey
Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey (New York Times Best Selling Author)
It is now in the final round against Palimpsest by Catherynne Valente (also a Hugo Award Nominee). It is doing reasonably well (losing 18 to 19) if you would like to vote (1 point just for voting, 2 points for saying why you liked the book). You can do so up to April 19th at 8:00 PM at this link:http://www.bscreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=93&t=8044
See ya all in a few weeks.
