I am happy to be writing my first blog on my new website, which may not yet have all the wrinkles ironed out of it. I have just received the second draft of my new novel Seal of Secrets back from my beta reader with many very insightful criticisms. Work on the third draft will start soon. I’m guessing I may be ready to publish within the next few months, depending on how busy the holidays get.
Meanwhile, I have two upcoming signing events that I’m looking forward to. The first will be at the Salem Public Library’s Authorama on Saturday November 12, from 1:00-4:00PM. It promises to be a lot of fun with about 40 independent authors in attendance. Please come and join us. The second will be at OryCon at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront, the weekend of November 18-20. I will be there Saturday N0vember 19. This will be particularly exciting for me since it will be the launch weekend for this year’s short story anthology from the Northwest Independent Writers Association. The book is called Artifact and my newest short story, “The Paleographer,” will be published in it. If you’ve never been to a convention like this, you might want to take a look. It has nowhere near the scope of ComiCon in San Diego, but it can be a real hoot nonetheless. The costumes can be knockouts.
I will try to flex my blogging muscles over the next few weeks to talk about other indie authors, new books of interest, and even some movie reviews. Thanks to all of you for your support.
