TrekCore has published a nifty preview of the upcoming Shore Leave 35 convention by interviewing five of the author guests: myself, David Mack, Greg Cox, Christopher L. Bennett, and Marco Palmieri.
Shore Leave is delightful convention that has a real sense of family. One of the reasons why I never miss the show is because it feels like a family reunion. There's genuineness to the convention that is often missing from the larger cons. And it also puts the guests on the same level as the fans. It's a personal interaction that you don't always get at the larger shows.
