Kent County Public Library’s Authors and Audiences

Hey, guys! There was an fantastic event at the Kent County Public Library today. The (I believe) 9th Annual Authors and Audiences.
 
We had lots of wonderful authors and illustrators there, had panels for various aspects of writing/publishing, and I got to meet best-selling author Jeri Smith-Ready! Whoo hoo! Check it out!
 
Besides meeting Jeri, and being fascinated by her publishing journey, and her books, I was able to spend some time with some wonderful folk – authors I’ve known for a long time (nods at Christy Shaffer) and some I just met today. Among them was Mark C. Collins, and he writes children’s books. I read one and was impressed. Seriously, if you have little ones, check him out!
Thanks to Hilary Welliver for all her work in putting this grand event together, and for the staff at the library (especially Michele Lapinski, who I saw running around constantly taking care of so many little details)!
I can’t wait for next year!

Dover Comic Con was fantastic!

Today was so superb! Not only did I have a booth in between two great writers and author friends (Will Hahn and Bobbie Palmer), but I saw many other friends as well and some great cosplay. (And I got to hug lots of the Doctor! Wheeeee!)

So all of that in and of itself made it a fantastic day, but something else made it even better. I had folks come up to my table exclaiming about my new book. It wasn’t always the same one either. Quite a few wanted the second book of the Deuces Wild series, Stacking the Deck, and some wanted Children of the Enaisi (book two of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles). When they found out there was also a prequel that takes place 1,000 years before, quite a few snatched that one up too.

I got home to a private message from someone who wants book four (when its released) for a gift for a family member who is a big fan of my books. And a FB post mentioning me from someone at the Con who loves my writing.

Wow! Just…wow!

Dover Comic Con and new books in my series!

Tomorrow is Dover Comic Con, and I’m thrilled to have two new books in the Sword’s Edge Chronicles to offer at my table!

For those who aren’t close enough to attend (and if that’s the case I’m sorry, I’m so sorry), you can still snag the two new titles, or if you perhaps haven’t started the series yet, now is the time, because the fourth book in that series is due out this fall. You can get the first book, Sword’s Edge, online in print or ebook (in lots of different formats).

The two new books of the series are (in published order): Children of the Enaisi, which continues hard on the heels of the first book, Sword’s Edge, and book three, entitled Unlikely Prophet, a prequel which takes place 1,000 years in the past, and adds to the depth and understanding of their world.
Book four, Laws and Prophecies, as I said will be out soon.

And in case swords, capes, castles, aliens, portals, bio-tech, and telepathy aren’t your thing, I also have two novels in a space opera series: Deuces Wild. It’s about a cowboy and a space pirate. Or is he a mercenary? Or an assassin? Perhaps you’ll figure it out.
