Winning Catch Up

Happy Hump Day! I know, I know, it's like I've fallen off the face of the Earth. That's what deadlines do, gang, and yes, I'm still on deadline for Alien Research. But, as my Hook Me Up! subscribers already know, there's so much going on, including the announcement of the winners of the Advanced Final Copies of Alien in the House, that I just had to stop and catch everyone up. So let's get to it!

First up, my April column for It's Comic Book Day! is live, so check it out and see what I do, and don't, recommend this month.

After that, head over to Medusa's Library where she's discussing gateway drugs -- for science fiction, that is.

Then check out what Gizmo's Reviews and Bibliognome are excited about. And check out Bibliognome's Bon Jovi Concert photos while you're there!

Speaking of excited, check out what Pearls Cast Before a McPig thought of Alien in the House. Then see what Silk Screen Views thought of Touched by an Alien and Alien Tango.

I'll be visiting the Goodreads group Girls, Guns and Grimoires later this month to yap about the Alien series, so if you want to join in, join the group!

Speaking of my running around and running the yap, it's time for another roundup of In Person Events -- where you get to come see the me and have a good time while doing so!

Short Story Workshop -- I'll be teaching how to write short stories, and why that can be both harder and easier than novels, Saturday, May 4, 2013, 11:00am-3:30pm, Queen Creek Library, Queen Creek, AZ. Space is limited, so reserve your seat today!

Book Signing -- for Alien in the House, Wednesday, May 8, 2013, 7:00pm-8:30pm, The Poisoned Pen, Scottsdale, AZ. This is my only signing event in Arizona before Phoenix Comicon, so don't miss out!

Mysterious Galaxy 20th Birthday Bash -- signing Alien in the House and eating cake all day, Saturday, May 11, 2013, 10:00am-5:00pm; I'm in the featured Arizona Authors Spotlight with awesome authors Jeff Marriotte and Marsheila Rockwell from 11:00am-12:00pm, San Diego, CA. This is my only Southern California signing before San Diego Comic-Con, so don't miss out!

Phoenix Comicon -- May 23 to May 26

Arizona Dreamin' -- May 31 to June 2

San Diego Comic-Con -- July 17 to July 21

DarkCon 2014 -- January 9 - January 12, 2014, I'm the Local Guest of Honor and DarkCon is hosting GiniKon on Sunday the 12th;  hotel reservations are now open! Get registered today, this event's gonna be huge!

I know you're all wondering who won the latest contest. And the time to find that out is now! So, without further ado, here are the lucky winners of an advanced final copy of Alien in the House:
  
--Marlise Perkins
--Bananas in the Void
--Clara Miller
--Silk Screen Views
--Ratkin

Special Mention Winner, who also gets an advanced copy of Alien in the House, chosen because she supported my "not awarding for grossest story" statement (hey, I'm capricious that way): Write With Butterfly Wings

NOTE TO THE WINNERS: You have until Sunday, April 21st, to send me an email with your name, complete mailing address, and any requested personalization -- any prize not claimed by then will be pulled back by the Gods of Random and a new winner(s) will be chosen.

That's it for today, but as always, more's on the way. More of me furiously writing Alien Research, true, but more of other things, too. So, enjoy the downward slide towards the weekend and let's be readers out there! Peace out, my li'l ganstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!

Love,
Gini
