I've posted my contribution to the SF Novelists shared blog, and you'll find my article on school visits by authors here
(My blog was promptly followed by Kate Elliot's post on The Disposable Woman, which is worth checking out. Commenters include Charlie Stross, Ted Chiang and some of the SF Novelists authors.)
So, check out sfnovelists.com, read and comment!
