First Annual Indie Author Day

was yesterday, October 8th.

The Yuma County Library was AMAZING. Not only did they acknowledge the budding event, they brought in Graeme Ing to talk about getting started as an Indie Author.

I went down and listened to Graeme speak and he did a very good job. I was impressed. After he spoke there was a 30 minute break and then they had a Q&A panel about Indie publishing with Christine Howard (My local NaNoWriMo Co-ML), Graeme Ing and myself. We had a great turn out. I was nice to see so many face, both the new and the familiar.

I’m eager to see what they do next year.

Greenlee County Fair

I had an amazing time! I saw a huge number of people that I hadn’t seen in years, some in 20 or more! Even a cousin that had to tell me who he was. I got to meet a lot of new people and tell even more about my books.

I was able to get my books into two new libraries! So if you live in the Clifton area or in Graham County, go in and ask for them, they should be available in both systems by now. I also hope to be able to schedule an event at the Safford Library in the future (when is going to depend on coordinating my schedule and theirs.)

It was a great trip and one I hope to do again next year. I’m also looking at the possibility of finding someone to share the booth with me and being able to go to the Graham County Fair next year.


Gearing up For NaNoWriMo

Yes, I know that NaNoWriMo is still two months away from starting, However, since I’m a co-municipal liaison, we start thinking about it, and working on it, way early. Why? So we can do things like will start in just two days in my region (Yuma, AZ) NaNo Prep Workshops. What are they? A series of workshops, open to the public and sponsored by our local library system (so, FREE) to help people get ready for, plan, plot, create characters and worlds, so they can be ready to start with their NaNo novel in November.

Why are the workshops so early? Yes there will be a whole entire month between the end of the workshops and when NaNo starts. The answer is simple. We wanted to give our participants time in October to put what they learn to use. It takes time to create worlds, get to know characters, decide where you want to go with your story, etc. I could say it takes time to plot and outline but I don’t do that. I start my stories with characters, a situation and a goal, and let my characters tell me what happens from there.

Are you getting excited about NaNoWriMo?


Escape is FREE on all retailers!

I’ve decided to let this one go free, everywhere, so go get your copy now! This is the first book in the WMC (White Mountain Chanat) series. It’s followed by Jade’s Peace and Risking Alex with more yet to come.

ESCAPE


After a year of running and hiding from her family and an arranged marriage to her chanat leader, more than half of it never shifting out of her cougar form, Rebecca is found trespassing by Nick and his enforcer. He seems different, he seems to want to help her and protect her, but will he still want to when he knows her better? Rebecca knows that keeping her away from her father and his choice of husband for her may end in a war between Chanats, will Nick be willing to risk his people? Her instincts tell her that he could be her mate, but after running scared for so long can she let herself trust her instincts? How can she be sure that he won’t take her back to her father?

Busy busy week

Not only has this been the second week back to school for one of my kids, it’s also the first week back for two of them. On top of that my oldest, the only one with a driver’s license (who doesn’t start school for another 10 days) has been out of town visiting family, and the old man has been out of town on business. So, I’ve been playing single parent and doing ALL the running around. Shopping (I haven’t done much shopping since the oldest got her driver’s license!) back and forth to school, etc. And I’ve managed to get quiet a bit done on Ruger as well. I’m also working on details for my next, and currently super secret project, as well as slowly, in the back of my mind, working out some of the details to the next WMC novel. (Who do you think the next WMC book should be about?)

I’m not saying it’s not been a productive week, just hectic. How has your week gone?
