A Small Update

I've just updated the main website at with a Bibliography for Blackout from Connie (she will do a separate one for All Clear when it comes out).  In updated appearances, Connie will be participating at The 2010 Nasfic, ReConStruction, in Raleigh, NC in early August and at BuboniCon 42 in Albuquerque, NM in late August.  Look for more updates soon both here on the blog and on the main website as we get closer to the release of All Clear!

An Update from Connie!

Hi, everybody! I just got back from my book tour--sort of. I still have a signing in Texas on Friday and assorted local signings. Thank you all for coming to my signings. It was great to see everybody! And especially thanks to everyone who showed up at Borderlands in San Francisco, where the weather was absolutely wretched. And in Seattle, where you had to miss the first part of the Superbowl. Or the Superbowl ads. Which ad was your favorite? I loved the Paris Google ad and hated the married guy/Dodge one.

Anyway, everywhere I went, people asked me the same two questions:

1. How did you get interested in time travel?


2. Did you have to do a lot of research for BLACKOUT?

A lot of people also said they wished I'd listed the books I'd used to research the novel at the end of the book. Novels don't ordinarily have bibliographies, but I promised I'd list some of my favorite research books on this site as soon as I've looked up all the titles and authors.

In the meantime, I'll answer the second question:
