Again, been awhile since I had the time to put up a blog post… quite busy.
At the end of June (22-27) I was in Nashville at the Utopia con, meeting a whole bunch of fun people – authors, readers, bloggers, cover artists, etc. The 13-hour car ride I could maybe do without, but the con itself was a lot of fun. (Coming from someone who generally avoids disruptions to the usual routine, I suppose that says a lot that I’d be up for doing it again.)
I also got to meet some fellow Curiosity Quills authors – Ayden Morgen, Eliza Tilton, and Jadah McCoy (though Jadah is like a coalescence of energy in human form – she didn’t spend a lot of time at the table.)
I did the ride in one shot both coming and going… (this photo is somewhere in Virginia along I-81.) It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but still… if not for lugging boxes of books, perhaps flying would be better despite the cost.
Anyway – in other news – we’re coming up on July 18th, and the release of my vampire novel, Chiaroscuro – The Mouse and the Candle. We’re doing a release party (online event) on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/events/1191383477559548/ – that all are welcome to pop in.

Anyway, I’ll stop rambling for now. Have a great weekend!
