Hello, September

Well, summer is over and I've finally faced the fact that I need to get back to writing obligations. This is the first time all of my kids are in school and while I miss them terribly, I admit I'm getting a lot done. My agent has me putting the final touches on one book, revising another, and studying a massive text on writing craft all while I need to outline and draft a certain book 3. Back to the grind.

You can find me a few places out in the wild this month. First up, I'll be at Midway, Utah's Swiss Days this weekend. My books will be available for sale in "The Book Shoppe," including a few signed copies, and I will be there in person to sign books on Saturday from 2:30-4:30 pm. So please stop by and say hi! (or guten tag?)

I'll be at the launch party for TRUE HEROES on September 12th at the Provo City Library speaking on a panel and signing books. Not only will most of the authors who contributed to the project be there, but many of the children featured in the stories as well. I can't wait! Consider stopping by if you can. Here are details about the event and here is a bit more about the book itself. You can preorder it here.
Also, I'll be at Salt Lake Comic Con at the end of the month. Besides speaking on panels and signing books, I might secretly stalk Samwise and Captain America. Okay, not so secretly. :) Anyone else planning on getting their nerd on and attending?

How was your summer? Tell me what your plans are this fall.

If we're strong enough to let it in, we're strong enough to let it go.

You need to "outline and draft a certain book"? I'm interested in what that might be ...

My summer was very busy, and not very productive writing-wise. A part of me is looking forward to my kids going back to school as well, just so I can get more work done.
I was just thinking about you the other day and wondering what the latest news is on some of your stories! (In particular, the last one I read. It was great and I hope things are moving forward with it!)

That's cool you get to be a part of all those events. I wouldn't know where to go to begin any of that.
Happy writing and revising!

I'll see you at the con! So cool you were able to contribute to that anthology. Looking forward to it. :)
