Book Launch: Con-Eire!

I am happy to announce that my play Con-Eire is now available for purchase!

Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.

Thanks to the tireless work by Gene, who edited the text, laid out the pages and wrestled with PDF and JPG files in a life or death struggle, this short comedy for voices will at last appear in tangible form. It looks great -- simple, but elegant (thanks to Gene's great design sense). There's a lovely pull quote courtesy of the generous (and hilarious) Lee Martindale. The back cover copy reads like this:

It’s three days before the start of CON-EIRE, the best Irish-themed science fiction and fantasy con in the tri-state area, when a phone call sets the entire Convention Committee into panic mode. Is Big Name Writer going to pull out at the last minute? What does Very Famous Artist have to do with that decision? And what do the Fairies have to say about all this? Follow the hilarious mishaps as the committee members work desperately to salvage months of planning and hard work, all of which are about to be undone by a well-known prima donna.

The play debuted at Trinoc*coN last year with an enthusiastic volunteer cast and was well-received. It's my hope that a lot of people in the sff world will enjoy this play. Feel free to add reviews to the store's page and to help publicize the book in other ways -- yee ha!

FYI: If you do order direct from Lulu, be sure to choose media mail shipping rather than "standard" shipping (thanks, Mildred!).
