Halloween Humping

Made you look.

Happy Hump Day! I know, I know, I've been essentially silent and not around much. Been busy, mostly because Alien Collective is due and is (shocking no one) not done yet. So I've been focused. FOCUSED I TELL YOU. And I swear that focus has not been on Halloween candy. Much.

But, because things pile up and all that, figured it was about time (high time, past time, and half time) to catch all y'all up on the various happenings going on. So let's get to it, shall we? We shall.

First up and speaking of Alien Collective, have you done your girl a solid and pre-ordered Alien Research yet? (Did you see what I did there? Heh.) You have? I lurves you. You haven't yet? Why ever not? Pre-orders are vitally important, and if we want to keep DAW wanting to keep the series going, they matter even more. You don't want to pre-order because you plan to come see the me at a signing? Then pre-order from that bookstore, my darlings. It makes the bookstore, the publisher, AND the author happy. You get a triple! Such a deal.

Speaking of bookstores and signings and other in-person events, oh my, mark the calendars now:
--Saturday, November 9, 8th Annual FREE Fall Writer's Workshop, Scottsdale Civic Center Library, Scottsdale, AZ, 9:30am-4:30pm, presenting Finding Your Voice 11:15am-12:00noon; What Does It Take To Get Happily Published Today? 1:30-2:15pm
--Saturday, December 7, Mysterious Galaxy San Diego, CA, Eat! Read! Party! Holiday Event, 3-5pm
--Sunday, December 8, Mysterious Galaxy Redondo Beach, CA, Holiday Party, 3-5pm
--Thursday, December 12, The Poisoned Pen, Scottsdale, AZ, 7-8:30pm. There may also be another LiveStream event along with the in-store signing, so stay tuned
--January 9-12, 2014, DarkCon, Phoenix, AZ, where I'm the Local Author Guest of Honor, don't miss this one, it's gonna be huge
--January 24-26, 2014, San Diego State 30th Anniversary Writer's Conference, San Diego, CA; I'm on the faculty, panels to be announced
--February 6-9, 2014, Coastal Magic Con, Daytona Beach, FL, panels, signings, dinners, laser tag, what's not to love
--March 15-16, 2014, Tucson Festival of Books, Tucson, AZ; panels, signings, and lots of booth hours

After making plans to see the me in the coming months, head over to Larissa's Bookish Life and see who her top male book characters are. Then see what Autograph Hound thought of seeing me again at WorldCon. And last but in no way least, see who The Writer Librarian has in her mutual admiration society.

Looking for some Halloween reading? Why not check out The Night Beat or The Happy Acres Haunted Hotel for Active Seniors? Or take a stab at The Disciple, Amazing & Waiting: Two Novelettes, or Hotter Than Hell by me writing as Jemma Chase.Want more? Check out the Bibliography page for all the reading matter that's fit to print!

Last but not least, I have some friends doing a variety of Kickstarter projects you may want to check out (in order of soonest to funding's end):
Neverland's Library
Noble Ark
Publish Masochists

That's it for today, but as always, more's on the way. So enjoy the downward slide towards the weekend, hope those who indulge have a safe and Happy Halloween, and let's be readers out there! Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!

Love,
Gini
