Book Signing at Hyde Brothers on March 7th

Visit Hyde Brothers on March 7th between 5pm and 7pm where I’ll be selling and signing Sorcery & Widgets. Even if you already have the book, feel free to stop by just to say hi and shop the store! You’ll probably be able to find me in the aisle with the cat 🙂 Check out the Facebook event page for more details.

Mark your calendars (and get your tickets!) – Muncie Comic Con May 23rd

Muncie Comic Con

It’s still a few months away, but I’ll have an artist table at Muncie Comic Con on May 23rd. I’ll be selling and signing copies of Sorcery & Widgets, giving away download codes for free sample stories, and hopefully a few other things that I’m still working on. In the meantime, you can find links for tickets and vendor tables on their website and keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates.

Since I have several upcoming events now, I’ve made an events page on my website where you can find past events as well as links and details for the events that I have already scheduled for this year–next up is my book signing at Hyde Brothers on March 7th!

Sorcery & Widgets is available at Hyde Brothers + Book Signing March 7th

Sorcery & Widgets is available at Hyde Brothers Booksellers in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It’s right up front in the local author section, but you should also check out the rest of the store, which has so many books that you probably won’t be able to leave without getting a few more. Plus, there are bookstore cats!

Also, mark your calendars: on March 7th from 5pm to 7pm, I’ll be at the store signing Sorcery & Widgets and giving away download codes for free sample stories. Hyde Brothers normally closes at 6pm on Saturdays, so you get an extra hour of shopping just for stopping by my book signing!

Story Update – Factor Four Magazine has closed

I received an email yesterday from the editor of Factor Four Magazine informing me that the magazine has closed and all stories have been released (you can read the full announcement here). Unfortunately, this means that my story “Employable Skills,” which had recently been accepted by the magazine, will not be published in its pages. I’m disappointed that you won’t get to see the story in print any time soon, but I’m grateful that the editor took the time to notify authors and release stories–I’ve had several stories caught in limbo before when a magazine disappears without a trace, and it is nice to know that I’m free to find a new home for my story.

In the meantime, you can check out my published stories here, or you can find almost all of them collected in Sorcery & Widgets. Also, keep an eye out for the Smashwords End of the Year Sale, which will take place between December 25th and January 1st and include a deal on the ebook version of Sorcery & Widgets.

ACPL Local Author Book Sale – Event Wrap-up

Thanks to everyone who attended the ACPL Local Author Book Sale yesterday and to those who weren’t able to make it but supported my work from afar! I enjoyed visiting with friends and family who stopped by along with meeting new readers and chatting with other local authors. Many people took advantage of my free sample stories shaped like tiny books (don’t forget to redeem the codes by the first of the year!). I recently added a free stories page to my website so that there will always be sample stories for you to check out. If you didn’t get a chance to sign up for my mailing list, but want to be notified of news and new releases, just send me a message through my contact form and mention that you want to be added.

Thanks again to everyone who made this event a success!
