Looking to Autumn

Halfway through August and already I'm anticipating September. The start of school for Destructo and a new writing schedule for me. At least until January :)

NEWS: I've officially signed two more contracts with Tirgearr Publishing to republish two of my older stories. I'm really excited about this because both stories have been out of print for a few years now.

On October 18, 2012*, we'll be releasing INTERFACE--a SFR short story spin-off from The Naravan Chronicles. If you've read THE SECRET OF NARAVA and were wondering about Nathan's partner Alex, this is the story of how he and his wife Gina met--and got into a lot of trouble. This story was originally published in the anthology DREAM QUEST.

Then on November 1, 2012*, we'll be releasing my paranormal romance novella CHRISTMAS PRESENT, a look at what might happen if the Ghost of Christmas Present fell in love.

Both stories will be re-edited to update them a bit and will be available in all electronic formats. As soon as I have cover art, I'll reveal!

SIGHTINGS: I'll be doing several blogs over the upcoming months, so watch this spot for updates. Currently on the schedule:

I'm currently at friend and fellow author Cathy Greenfeder's blog being interviewed and giving away a free ebook from my backlist. Comment for a chance to win. You have from August 28th through September 9th to enter!

Then you can find me over at Heart of Fiction on September 4th answering a few questions. Fun stuff so please swing by and leave a comment.

On September 10th, I'll be over at Star-Crossed Romance and again, I'll be offering a free ebook from my backlist as a prize for one random commenter.

Also, I'll be at my local RWA/NYC chapter blog, Blogging in the Big Apple, on October 6th talking about what scares me! That should be fun. Do swing in and tell me what scares you.

For in-person SIGHTINGS: I'll be signing books and chatting to readers at the Brooklyn Book Festival 2012 on Sunday, September 23! The event is free so if you're in the New York area, drop in and say HI! I'll be at my local RWA chapter's booth.

And I'll be attending the New Jersey Romance Writer's annual Put Your Heart in a Book conference October 12-13. The book-signing on Saturday the 13th is open to the public so do stop in and say hello to all the wonderful writers attending this conference.

SALE: And finally, Tirgearr Publishing is having a ONE DAY 50% off sale on all Kindle versions of their books on August 29th! If you're a Kindle books reader, this is a great time to stock up on those titles you've been wanting to get. THE SECRET OF NARAVA will be among the books on sale and with the short story coming soon, what a great opportunity to pick up this book before that release!

Happy Reading!

*UPDATE: These release dates have been updated as of October 2 to reflect a change in the publisher's schedule.
