Welcome

You have made it all the way here, so you may as well sit down, take a minute to look around, and enjoy. What you will find, depends on the day and my mood. You just never can tell.

Back on Track


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 CallendroThe 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!

  1. Can't wait to hear your interview! Looks like a neat site that. Do you what sort of audience they get there? Is it all kids? Did you actually go there or do it over the phone? How does that work?

    You're on fire. And how great you got to meet a fellow author. Historical fantasy sounds intriguing. I'll have to check that out.

    Impressive y'are. :) Congrats on your upcoming book release (can't wait to have my final copy of the trilogy)!

    1. I have tried to find out the audience and its a lot of authors (go figure) but its also a lot of parents looking for books for their children. I dont know about the other author show audiences but that is a good view for the Children's Show.

      I like that word, Trilogy.

  3. Wow! Kentucky! If you go through NJ...:D Can't wait to hear your interview. Unfortunately, I have to wait until I get home. No speakers on my computer at work. :(
    Like Carrie says, "Impressive" that's definitely what you are, my friend.

    1. I keep trying to get through NJ. One of these days I will make it. Hopefully when you have time. Life of a working writer is busy!

      Hope you like the interview!
