Mixed Nuts

Happy Friday! Well, as my Hook Me Up! subscribers already know, we have a grab bag for you to roll into the weekend with, and since I'm clearly on the "slow and steady manages to get updates out sometime" plan, let's just get right to it all.

First up, Alien Collective Member in Very Good Standing Life According to Nicole has a CopperCon recap, complete with pictures. And, if that's not enough, she's also participating in Blog Fest 2010 and has some really cool prizes, including a signed copy of "Touched by an Alien".

The Vampire Wire girls have a couple of interesting articles going that include
discussions of "Touched by an Alien", covers and cover artists, and the best part, prizes: Contest Weiners & Catsup'ing Up! & Alien Gropers, and
Cover Artists & Contest for Ghost Ocean by S.M. Peters & Disco Thursday.

Next, awesome author Weston Ochse has also done a CopperCon recap complete with different pictures. Check it out, it's funny and, to lure some of the Alien Collective over, he writes about zombies.

So, yes, everyone else has done a more comprehensive CopperCon recap than moi. Hey, I was busy getting posters and divvying them up!

Speaking of which, as a reminder for the new folks, there's still time to get in on this contest -- IF you're on Hook Me Up! If you've somehow resisted the lure, resist no longer! Send an email to with "Hook Me Up!" in the subject line. You'll be in, and learn how you can win!

Oh, and for those of you trying to keep score at home, I just got invited to TusCon 37, Nov. 12-14, in Tuscon, AZ. And I forgot to mention that I'm also going to be at the Tucson Festival of Books, Mar. 12 & 13, in Tucson, AZ. Yes, that does mean I'm going to, at last count, a zillion cons. But hey, I love cons, so it's all good! Check the Datebook and my page at for full details, and if you're going to be anywhere near any of the cons I'm going to, let me know 'cause I'd love to hang with any and all of my Alien Collective.

So, have a wonderful weekend, and let's be winners out there!

I love being called an awesome author. Thanks Gini. Look forward to seeing you at RINCON, TUCSON, Festival of Books and beyond. Most of all I look forward to seeing you on the book shelves. Hope you are a best seller!

Aww, thanks, Weston! From your keyboard to God's eyes...or something like that. :-D

Looking forward to seeing you and Yvonne pretty much monthly for the next year. LOL! All the cool kids hit the cons, after all.

(Psst to the Alien Collective...both Weston and his wife, Yvonne Navarro, are authors, and you'll love their books. Hint, hint, hint.)
