So Many Things and Comic-Con, Too!


Happy Monday!
I know, I know...it's been a while, but I'm back with another update chock-full of stuff! So, let's not delay and get right to all the goings on! (And, no, I can't get rid of that weird white line above this paragraph. I've decided it's a "design element" and we're all just going to live with it. LOL)

And, for starters...
Have questions for me? Want them answered?

Then race on over to author J.P. Cane's website so that you can get those questions answered on the Working Title podcast I'll be recording next week.

So, get those questions in RIGHT NOW!
 Come See the Me at

San Diego Comic-Con

July 18-22

San Diego Convention Center


It's that time again, time to head to the Granddaddy of all cons -- San Diego Comic-Con International!

Wednesday, July 18
I'll be the Preview Night author for Mysterious Galaxy at Booth 1119, from 6-9pm. If you come by, get your hug from me, and if you buy three books, as long as one is mine, you'll get a free, large totebag! (While supplies last.)

Friday, July 20
I'll be signing FREE copies of Touched by an Alien at the Penguin Random House Booth. This is a ticketed event, so get to the PRH booth the day before to be sure you know when the tickets are handed out. (Tickets are free but limited.)

Friday, July 20
4:30-5:30pm
Geek Geek Revolution Panel, Room 8

Geek Geek Revolution is a no-holds-barred geek culture game show featuring five science fiction/fantasy authors competing for the chance to be top geek. In addition, audience members will be asked to write-in questions in hopes of stumping the authors and winning a prize pack of books. Hold onto your hats, nerf herders, this might get ugly. Featuring Andy Weir, Sylvain Neuvel, Delilah Dawson, Kiersten White, Natalie C. Parker, and Gini Koch.  Moderated by Heath Corson (Nerdist).
Signing immediately after the panel

Sunday, July 22
I'll be the closing author for Mysterious Galaxy, Booth 1119, from 4pm to close. IF we have any totebags left, the same offer as for Preview Night will be in place. So get all those last-minute hugs and bookie wookies!
 

So many things going on at TG Geeks! So, check out all my various yaps, and then all the rest of the coolness over there! Because, you name it, we ALL talk about it!

Aliens Like Us Revelations

Happy Hump Day, Hook Me Up! Gang,

The shock has to be hard on some of you. YES, another newsletter a week after the one that took months to show up. Deep breaths, deep breaths...

Not to worry -- I won't be in your inboxes every week. But I have things I know all y'all want to know (and see), so on we go! And we go right onto some very good news...
COVER REVEAL
 
That's right, it's he-ere!

Or, rather, it's over at my Premieres page. Don't wait! Click that link and feast your eyes on the awesomeness that artist Lindsey Look has created!
 
And now, for some bad news...

As some of you have surmised based on Amazon's advising you of such, Aliens Like Us is not actually going to release in August. The why is pretty simple -- 2017 kicked my butt and I'm so far behind that even Kitty can't make a joke about it. It's not fair to DAW and Penguin Random House, and it's not good for me or my sanity, either. So, my editor and I went over things and Aliens Like Us will release in February 2019.

I realize that's a long time for you guys to wait for your next Kitty Fix but, honestly, the books are long and appear to be getting longer despite my best efforts to rein the characters in. Plus, with my actually getting a smidge of breathing room to get Aliens Like Us done without total panic and mass hysteria, I should finally be able to focus on other things...like Night Music, Alexander Outland: Space Avenger, The Alien Collection, and more.

So, while I know there will be wailing and lamentation about the delay, in the long run, the time will fly by and I will still be feeding your reading addictions. And, hopefully, keeping myself out of the rubber room and the special jacket with long arms.
Here's the latest moi at TG Geeks

Review of Alien Tango

 
See The Me Live - Kind Of!

One of the alert Members of the Alien Collective in Very Good Standing (Joseph Gaxiola) spotted this video. I'd forgotten we'd done this game at the Penguin Random House party at last year's San Diego Comic-Con, but we did, and now you get to see it, the Game for the Ages.
