December Doings

Here it is December, already. November went by like a slap in the face.

I did a video interview this weekend in Connecticut. It went well, at least I thought so. Hope I didn’t flub it in places too badly. It snowed, too. I hate snow. Having to clean it off a car is the pits. Scared to death to drive in it, too. I’m just not used to it anymore. Lucky for me, the roads were clear by the time I set out for the airport.

Have I ever told you how much I hate cold weather? Well, I do. Seems the older I get, the less I’m able to deal with the cold. I just don’t want to go out in it. I’ve even been known to forego grocery shopping, just so I won’t have to go outside.

So. Invasion is doing well, lots of 4 and 5 star reviews. I’m making sales, too. About 40 or 50 so far, which is not bad, considering I’ve done hardly any marketing on it. The other two books–The Moreva of Astoreth and The Underground–are doing pretty good, too.

Will be making my yearly trek to Boston in January, to the Arisia sf/f convention. I think I’m also going to say the hell with it and go to Boskone, too, in February. I’ll be taking the train, and it has wi-fi, so I can work.

That’s all for now. Pretty much worn out after my trek this weekend.

Ciao!

Been So Long…

I’m almost embarrassed to come back. But hey, I have been working hard on the new book.

Anyway, I’m going to Arisia in January 2014, as I do every year. Hopefully I can sell some books then.

Sorry this is so short, but I gotta get back to writing…

Love ya!

Back From Arisia

You know what I like about cons? The energy. It fairly crackles through the air, stimulating even my lethargic butt.

Arisia IMO, is one of the more crackly ones I’ve attended,  though I can’t say I’ve attended them all. At any rate, I went to a number of great panels. In the dealer’s room, the Broads sold a lot of books on behalf of their fellow Broads (yay!) Went to a launch party for an anthology called UnCONventional, 22 short  stories about what goes on behind the scenes at a con (and it’s not about ops!)

A funny aside: I was trying to find a particular room and ended up in the Boston Convention Center which is connected to the hotel. Once I got my bearings, I left the Center with two guys, one obviously a security guard and the other I’m not sure, but when we reached the hotel, one said to the other: “This is some party–I think I’ll stay.”

So that’s all for now, will report in on The Underground later!

Arisia!

Just bought my train tickets to Boston for Arisia. I’ll only be on one panel–the Broad Universe Rapid Fire Reading–but I’ll be womanning the BU table, too! So stop by, browse, chat and buy a book! 🙂
