November 24, 2018
Hello, hello! For those who celebrated, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We hosted at our house and it was really nice to have everyone together.
I wanted to share a couple quick updates with you all.
NEW PROJECT! My short story, Chrysalis, is part of the Writing Bloc’s upcoming ESCAPE! Anthology. This is an amazing collection of stories from some tremendous writers -- and I’m honored to be part of it. You can pre-order your e-copy now (for $2.99 -- price will go to $5.99 on January 1). The e-book version will come out first but there are plans for a print release as well. I really encourage you to grab a copy -- you’ll be glad you did!
Interviews: First, I had a delightful conversation with Sarah from the GSMC Book Review Podcast the other day. The interview is now live, please check it out!
Reviews: Reviews are coming in slowly, but remain very, very positive (latest one on Amazon is 5 star, whoo hoo!). If you have read your copy of Shadow King -- please consider taking a moment or two and putting a review up on Amazon or Goodreads. Reviews are really valuable.
Events: The Arisia Convention has changed hotels in Boston and that may affect the days I’m in attendance. I’ll keep you posted on exactly which days when things get a little clearer.
That’s it for now -- have a great rest of your day!
PS. On the off-chance any of the above links are wonky, here are the full ones:

Good morning, everyone.
I hope you’ve been well! We’re a little past one month since Shadow King launched and it has been quite the ride. I had two successful book signing/author events in October and hope to have more in the future. Right now, I’m planning to be at Arisia in January (in Boston). I’ll keep you posted on that.
I was also interviewed by WBZ-AM Radio’s Laurie Kirby for her Women’s Watch segment. You can listen to the interview on the WBZ website if you’re interested.
If you were one of my early backers and have not yet received your copy of Shadow King OR a link to download the e-book (or both), please contact Inkshares customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be able to help you out.
I’ve had a few people ask about their copies -- in most cases, people thought they ordered a hard copy but only ordered the e-book version. But you were all so kind as to support me early on in this adventure, I want to make sure you get your book!
Have a great weekend - and I’ll update again soon (I have two other interviews coming up and will share those links when they’re available!)
Lots of things to cover. An update, some more grovelling, etc...
October 17, 2018
Good morning, everyone!
I meant to send an update yesterday but life happened so I’m a day late on this one. It is officially two weeks since Shadow King launched, so I wanted to just give a quick update on how things are going.
A few reviews have started to come in on Goodreads and Amazon. The majority are 4 and 5 star, so that’s outstanding. However, I’d like to get a lot more! When you finish reading Shadow King, please consider leaving a review on one of the sites. It only takes a few minutes of your time and they’re really important for helping a book pick up momentum!
My first author event at Tatnuck Booksellers went well. Small group but there were a TON of questions in the q/a part, and I really enjoyed that. My next author event is October 24 (next week) at Belmont Books in Belmont, MA. Event starts at 7:00 pm.
I’ll also be attending Arisia in Boston in January. More details to come on that!
Press & Interviews
I was interviewed by WBZ AM Radio in Boston for their "Women’s Watch" segment. The interview was taped and will be aired/posted in the upcoming weeks. I will share a link as soon as it is available.
Upcoming interviews include:
Once links to those or specific times are available, I’ll be sure to share that with everyone!
I’m happy to say that progress on the ESCAPE Anthology (which will contain one of my short stories) is going well. The contributing authors are all in the process of reviewing the content, and I’m very excited to be included in this group of excellent writers. When production is finalized, I’ll be sure to let you know when the pub date is!
The Devil Inside is still in the pre-production queue with Inkshares. I am hoping that it will reach the editor in Spring 2019, but that will depend on how quickly the books ahead of it progress.
And, I am planning to kick off work on a new manuscript -- a follow-up to Shadow King -- during November.
That about covers the highlights for now. I’ll send another update when there is news to share!
An update, an apology, a plea...
