What a way to start the day...
Well, I just lost my complete blog. Vanished into the either. I've been saving, too, so I don't know WTF happened. I just hope this isn't indicative of what the rest of my day is going to be like.
Anyway, the original title for this post was going to be An Exciting Week in the Life of a Writer. But I realized that sounded like I was being critical and getting and staying published are two of the best things that have ever happened to me.
But there are weeks, like the ten days ahead of me, when I have to do less writing and more of the promo stuff. I'm not good at it. My stomach gets tied up in knots.
Here's what I have in store:
Denver is hosting its first ever Comic Con June 15 - 17 at the Convention Center downtown. They've lined up a pretty impressive list of guests including my favorite, James Marsters. I have a small part to play, too. Here is my schedule:
FRIDAY 7 PM
Spotlight Hyatt Room 3
SAT 11 AM
New Horror and Urban Fantasy Lit C104
SAT 1 PM
Strong Woman Writers and
Characters in SF and Urban Fantasy -
SAT 4 PM Hyatt Room 2
Paranormal Outer Limits
Since I haven't seen a program yet with panel descriptions, I can only guess from the titles what we'll be talking about. Friday night I think I'll be reading from Haunted, the next AS book out on August 28.
San Diego - Mon - Thurs
Then it's off to San Diego for four days to meet with my collaborator, Samantha Sommersby, on our new series. We plan to polish off the first book (which I assume will be out sometime early next year) and plot out the second. It will be four days of work. Maybe a little play. But mostly work.
When I get back, it's time for another Denver Con, Rom Con. Here's my schedule for that one:
Paranormal Slayers at 2:40 on Friday
Speed Date at 11:20 on Saturday
Paranormal Chat 1:30 on Saturday
Intimate Chat at 2:40 on Saturday
Book signing Saturday night at 8:00 p.m.
Full and busy weekend.
In between all this, I'm finishing off the ninth Anna Strong book, judging entries for the Colorado Gold Writing Conference and planning the book signing schedule for Haunted.
I have the first lined up, btw....mark your calendars...August 28, TC Highlands Ranch. First day you can get the book in your hot little hands.
I do want to return to the normal blog things I use to talk about, though. Hopefully, by the middle of July I can concentrate more on media stuff and less on what's going on with me. Which I realize isn't nearly as interesting as a sexy picture of James Marsters.
