A few things to mention for the coming week or so:
The Pixel Project is - quoting from their website - "... a complete virtual, volunteer-led global 501(c)3 nonprofit organisation whose mission is to raise awareness, funds and volunteer power for the cause to end violence against women through campaigns, initiatives, projects, and programmes at the intersection of social media, new technologies, and popular culture/the Arts."
One of the activities of the project is the Read For Pixels campaign, a series of Youtube sessions with authors who support the initiative. This year I am one of those authors, along with Alan Baxter, Bracken MacLeod, Carol Goodman, Daniel H. Wilson, Jenn Lyons, Kathryn Purdie, Namina Forna, Nghi Vo, Rin Chupeco, Romina Garber, and Tim Lebbon.
Again quoting from the website: "each livestream YouTube session will feature one author reading from one of their books and discussing women and girls in their books, why they support ending violence against women, and women in the media, geek culture, and popular culture. Each session will also include a live moderated Q&A segment for fans and book lovers. The sessions will take place on weekends throughout September 2022."
I'm doing my session on Sunday September 4th at 3.30pm UK time. Here's a link which will become active when the event goes live:

In association with that, I'm also doing a Reddit AMA over on r/Fantasy on August 31st. It's already listed in the sidebar over that Reddit page. Because of the inevitable time difference, Ill be doing the AMA over 24 hours so there will be ample time to get questions in and stand a good chance of an answer. It's over on r/Fantasy because that's the established venue for these events.
Unrelated to the above, I'm doing an online interview for ProWrtingAid as part of their Science Fiction Writers' Week. Many other writers are also involved. My slot is on Monday August 29th at 10.00 AM EDT/3.00PM UK. You do have to register.
