Happy Blog Monday!
So much has been going on in my world lately, that I have gotten a bit behind scheduled.
First, the Harlem Days Festival went very well. My banner turned out very nice. I sold a handful of books, and met a lot of new people. I also had the privilege of meeting author, Tom Nelson. He is the author of three historical fantasy books titled: The Paladin Callendro, The Winds Wharhalen, and a new book Warrior of the Dusk. We had about two hours to talk shop and chat. I can honestly say he is a very interesting fellow and I enjoyed my time spent at the author meet and greet all the more as I had someone talk with.
Second, I am happy to announce that my quest for a radio interview has come to fruition. I have made it through all stages of the process, and completed the interview. If you are interested in having a listen, all you need to do is go The Children's Author Show on August 29-30, 2012. I will be listed in the “ON AIR” box. Just give it a click and turn up the speakers. It was a fun interview and although I talk really fast and say the word BOOK a little funny to my ears, it was worth the effort. Now I can say I have at least completed one of my goals on promotion this year.
Third, I am finishing up the final, last, totally complete edit of Shadows End and then my good people, it goes to production! Yay! I have been working with the cover artist as well to complete the cover. So much to do in order to get it out and published. Stay tuned for a release date. I expect late September or Early October. I am not certain exactly at this moment. I will see if its posted yet and let you all know.
Fourth and finally, I am excited to announce that I have been invited to attend the Kentucky Book Fair on November 10, 2012. Woo Hoo! I am very excited as I like the book fairs and festivals. As I don’t know if I can attend the Tucson Festival again this year due to our competition schedule I really wanted to get into Kentucky. Not sure yet what I will be doing at the festival as of yet, but I am sure they will let me know when they can. For more information you can go Kentucky Book Fair or Kentucky Book Fair Face Book Page.
This week I will finish catching up and next week should be back to normal, or whatever will pass for normal anyway with my schedule. Have a great week everyone!
