Brain To Books Cyber Convention Round-Up #3

Brain to Books & Cyber Convention Now Have Websites

There are two new websites that are getting me really excited. Last year, I teamed up with Brain to Books to participate in the first Cyber Convention, and I did it again this year. Both events were a lot of fun, and full opportunities for both readers and writers alike. And now they both have official websites:

Please bookmark both these sites, because they’re going to be the go-to resources for upcoming Brain to Books events, and next year’s convention.

Upcoming Events

A Year In Publishing

It is almost a year since my first short story “Under a Hunter’s Moon” went into print, and it’s been a very exciting year. “Moon Shadows” hit the shelves in October 2015, and was a huge success at the book signing event I held at my local independent bookstore. In fact, it was such a huge success that we sold out the entire stock of the books that were ordered.

At the same time that “Moon Shadows” was hitting bookshelves, and online retailers, “Spooky Halloween Drabbles 2015” was hitting the Kindle market, with my ultra-short story “Shifting Dreams”.

In May 2015 “Across the Karman Line” came out, featuring my first science fiction short story “Evaline Transcendent”. Before this book even hit the shelves, my local bookstore asked me to participate in an “Independent Bookstores” event. I sat on a panel of fellow Alaskan writers, and answered questions about relationships, and what makes our characters tick. I made some great connections with both potential readers, and my fellow writers.

In Summary

So: What’s Next?

I have a number of projects in the works, including the much dreamed of first novel. I’m currently in the process of outlining the plot, and tweaking my characters to make everything work. For those who have read my existing works, this novel will see the return of Richard Parsons, star of “Under a Hunter’s Moon” and “The Lupine’s Call”.Here is the premise of the novel, as it stands:

Blackmailed into consulting for the Seattle Police Department’s Supernatural Taskforce, Richard Parsons enters a race against time when a mysterious killer starts tearing apart his fellow lupines (werewolves).
“Locked room mysteries were not part of the deal”.

But not without help! So a few thank you’s are in order:

  • Sandi Bateson, for all your love, support, and patience as I approached submission deadlines and for bringing your music and writing into my life.
  • The staff at Laurel Highlands Publishing, for picking up two of my stories in the last year, and for all the hard work and dedication that goes into helping me make those the best stories I could.
  • The amazing staff at Fireside Books, who have supported me throughout the release of two books, hosted my book signing sessions, and invited me to participate in their events to raise awareness of local authors..
  • All my co-workers, friends, family, and online colleagues who have made this such a wonderful year, especially all those wonderful people on GoodReads. A more amazing team of supporters, promoters, and interviewers I can’t imagine. I wish I could thank you all personally.

The amazing Angela B. Chrysler is a writer and blogger that I have had the pleasure of working with on a couple of projects. She recently released her first book in the “Tales of the Drui” series, entitled “Dolor and Shadow”, and is due to release her second book “Broken” in early September.

Angela is a member of GoodReads and a very active member of the community, dispensing advice, organizing events and giveaways, as well as somehow managing to get a pretty substantial amount of writing work done. I first met Angela through the 2015 Author Cyber Convention and couldn’t help but be impressed with her enthusiasm, and dedication to her fellow writers, and the readers we all rely on. I had the pleasure of being able to take part in this event, and help with some of the graphics that were used to promote it. Because of the time and effort put in by everyone, the event was a huge success, and I’m proud to have played my part.

The Brain to Books Summer Blog Tour is Angela’s latest project, and has been running since July 24th. Once again, she has pulled together a team of dedicated people who are helping to spread the word that there are some amazing independent authors out there. Every day through to the end of August, Angela will be posting interviews, and book blurbs from several authors, across a wide range of genres. I have the honor of being one of those asked to submit an entry for the tour, and you can find it here from August 29th onward.
