Nov 18-20 I’ll be at Philcon in Cherry Hill, NJ, and then I hope to be in several Charlotte-area bookstores in early December.
Next year is already shaping up. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come:
I’ll be chillin’ in Boston for Arisia in January!
I’ve accepted invitations to SheVaCon and Mysticon (both in Roanoke) in February, and should be back in Charlotte book stores with the launch of The Dread, Book Two in The Fallen Kings Cycle.
In March I’ll be at Ravencon as well as at the Arizona Renaissance Festival outside of Phoenix.
I’ve also been invited to Book Expo (BEA) in June, although I don’t have a schedule of events yet.
That’s what’s solid so far—I’ll add dates as I get confirmations. And if you just like to talk about the craft and business of writing, please join me in person for my monthly Meetup, the Thrifty Author Publishing Success Network!
