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.

What I’m reading ~ Destiny Awaits ~ Jaidis Shaw

This is the first book in the Juniper Grover Chronicles.


After Alayna Scott is the only survivor of the horrific car accident that takes her parents lives, she’s determined to start over some place new. She buys a house and moves to Juniper Grove, only to discover that there’s more to the little town than she could have imagined. After an attack changes her forever, she’s forced to deal with the fact that not only do shifters exist, but so do vampires.


What did I think? I enjoyed it. I read the book in just a few hours, it was an intriguing story and it made me feel good to be supporting another Indie Author. I definitely recommend and may even give it to my 12 year old to read.
