My friend, author Jeremy Bates, has a fun blog fest starting today — The Dog Days of Summer! This one celebrates summer, and what a perfect time for this.
Before summer is over, I’ll be heading to Chicon, the World Science Fiction Con in Chicago at the end of August (see “events” page). I’ll be on two panels with some esteemed science fiction authors (I am so humbled), and also meeting readers at a kaffeklatch and signing. I’m also slated to be at the Chicago Public Library to meet and talk with teen readers (and anyone who is not at Chicon). Later, in Sept, I’ll have some Southern California signings, so see my events page.
If I could be having a summer vacation, I’d probably be in Africa, maybe Rwanda, climbing the hills, seeking the gorillas.
If you leave your email (break it up so spambots won’t find you) in a comment, I’ll pick a winner to receive a chapter sampler (collectible, I only have a few left and I’ll sign this to you) and bookmark of STARTERS, my YA futuristic thriller, published by Random House (US entries only).
After you’ve done that, go to Jeremy’s site at the top and check out the Dog Days of Summer Blog Fest! I haven’t been to all of them yet, but the first few were a mix of adult and children’s. It’s fun, like a grab bag to find something new.
Before you go, look around here a bit. I have a page with advice on getting an agent and other fun stuff. Thanks for stopping by!
