I had a fabulous time at the Portland Spring Home & Garden Show as a spotlight author in the Book Garden on Thursday & Friday. This is the second of several appearances I’ll be doing this year. I learned many things, among them that I am incapable of keeping my butt in a chair for more than five minutes in this sort of situation. Also, it’s astoundingly easy to catch a cold when meeting hundreds of people in an enclosed space.
This sickness will not cause a zombie apocalypse, I promise. It’s not terrible or making me wish for death, unlike the plagues I suffered from shortly after school started for my kids last fall. I am, however, slower, less creative, and significantly more snarky for the time being. Those who know me probably have a hard time imagining me being more obnoxiously sarcastic than usual, but I can assure everyone that it happened.
In other news, I will definitely probably have a space sci-fi novel ready for release at GenCon, which is awesome. Currently untitled, it’s a doozy of an action thriller, and the outlining process is making me so excited I can barely stand the fact that I still have to finish The Greatest Sin #3 first, and get more time in on punching Dragons In Chains and Dragons In Flight into better shape. Coming soon: new covers to match the awesome of the new Dragons In Pieces cover!
I do still have three other first drafts to get back to, courtesy of NaNo2014, and they’ll be getting some love this summer, with hopeful fall releases. Yay!
