Quick May Update

Hello readers!  I thought I'd just publish this quick post to let you all know what has been going on with my writing lately.  I'll also be sending this out in a newsletter as well since I haven't sent one out in quite a while.  With that being said, here are a few things you should know:

Currently, I've been busy with my day job (starting in June I'll have a few months off, so I plan on writing a lot more then) and getting ready for another book event.  On May 25th and 26th I'll be taking part in the Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival.  Lately I've been trying to think of ways to build a local following for the Otherworld Trilogy and the Oescienne Series, since the setting for both stories are set in my home town, and I thought the Strawberry Festival would be a great way to do so.  If you are going to be attending, be sure to stop by booth # 159.  I'll have paperback books for sale, posters, buttons and bookmarks to give away, and maybe a raffle or two.

Earlier I mentioned my time off this coming summer and that I'll be using it to get some writing done (okay, hopefully more than just some writing done . . .).  I've been receiving a lot of email lately with questions about the fourth Oescienne book, so that will most likely take priority.  However, I have been consulting with my Muse about more Otherworld books (Cade's second POV short story, of course, and Robyn's and Enorah's stories).  I should also mention that some ideas for future paranormal series have been coming my way as well . . . more on that when I've got an actual manuscript in progress ;).  In a nutshell, I look forward to a very busy summer and fall :).

Finally, YA and adult fiction novelist Elle Casey is in the midst of her Springtime Indie Book Giveaway.  Feel free to check out her list and sign up to win some of the wonderful books being offered!  I've donated five ecopies of the Otherworld Trilogy Omnibus Edition, so if you know anyone who might be interested, do pass the information on!  Here is the link to the list of books:

Well, that's all for now!  I'll try and get some more photos up from the L.A. Times Festival of Books soon, as well as a video clip of my interview with KBEACH ;).  Until next time, happy reading!
