This Just In!

Happy Hump Day!

Before I roll into the rest of the News of the World, I have a special announcement. I was just pegged as the Local Author Guest of Honor for CopperCon Revolution which is happening THIS weekend, August 8-11. SO, if you're in or around the Greater Phoenix Metro Area (extra humidity during monsoon season, so you get to really experience all the different ways you can sweat), come on by! Oh, and if you're there, don't miss my reading -- it'll be from Alien Research. ;-D

And now, on with the countdown...

Hope everyone had a great week-plus while I was gone enjoying Sin City with the chicklet. If you're in Vegas or going, don't miss the George Wallace show at the Flamingo -- not only is it funny, but he gives prizes out to random members of the audience and I was one of them! Winning a free meal at the Hash House A Go Go in the Quad was pretty much the whipped cream and cherry on top of an already awesome sundae of a week. I could go on and on about Vegas (which, as anyone who knows me knows, is one of my fave cities of all time), but there's much going on, so it's back into the swing of things for me, and therefore, for all of you. Lucky, lucky, lucky. ;-D (Though not as lucky as those of us at the George Wallace show. But I digress...)

First off, the yap's running again over at The Writer Librarian so go check out the latest ponderings from the dark recesses of my mind.

Then, check out the Clockwork Universe: Steampunk vs. Aliens Kickstarter! We're funded! Yay! Only there's a lot more coolness to get to if we meet our stretch goals! Double yay! In fact, if we hit $13K, in addition to other stretch prizes -- like a free ecopy of Bradley P Beaulieu's novelette "To the Towers of Tulandan", bookmarks, postcards, and more -- every backer will receive a free ecopy of "A Cup of Joe" written by Anita Ensal (yes, that's moi). And if we can hit $20K then we can bring the book out in hardcover, which would be cool for more reasons than I can list here. So, if you haven't already joined the Clockwork Universe, please go over and do so today! Kickstarter campaign ends on Friday, August 16th.

After visiting the Kickstarter campaign, head on over to Larissa's Bookish Life and see what titles she things are the best of the best.

That's it for today, and since CopperCon starts tomorrow, that's it for me for this week. But never fear, as always, more's on the way. So enjoy the downward slide towards the weekend, see some of you at CopperCon Revolution, and I'll catch you on the flip side! Peace out my li'l gangstas, and let's be readers out there!
