My ArmadilloCon schedule. It’s an interesting mix. The con has not scheduled readings or signings. I will post my reading schedule as soon as I know it. I will have copies of The Crow God’s Girl for sale as well, and you should be able to find my other books in the dealer’s room. The full con schedule is here.
