California Dreamin'

Happy Hump Day! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, a lovely Easter for those who celebrated, and that the week's been treating you well. I'm heading off to SoCal -- WITH my holiday gift from the hubs of a brand new laptop that is not running no longer supported OS (farewell, XP...we barely knew ye) -- for a family reunion and related activities. But before I go I wanted to catch you all up on the latest stuff.
First off, the annual Brenda Novak auction for diabetes is starting May 1st, and I've got a super item in the auction -- an Alien Pack. The winner will get all 9 books so far in the Alien series, an exclusive, limited edition totebag to hold them all in, and more. Bookmark the site and my bid section so you can bid to win! All proceeds go to a great charity, and there are tons of amazing things to bid on, so take a look and get ready to go crazy!

Have you gotten Touched by an Alien in audio format yet? Well, if not, join the party! Available from Audible, Amazon, Tantor Audio, and other fine retailers all over.

Even the news media is talking about my Early Release Party for Alien Collective over at The Poisoned Pen on Saturday, May 3rd, from 2:00-3:00pm. There will be prizes, lots of fun, moi, and the happiness of getting Alien Collective days earlier than anyone else will -- don't miss it!

BTW, it's not too late to pre-order Alien Collective from any bookstore. But if you pre-order from The Poisoned Pen or Mysterious Galaxy you can get the book signed and personalized, too -- they're just cool that way.

Speaking of pre-orders, May is just around the corner -- have you pre-ordered Clockwork Universe: Steampunk vs. Aliens yet? In addition to a ton of other cool stories, it will contain the first ever Alien series short, "A Clockwork Alien", aka The One That Started The Craze.

Speaking of The Craze, have you bought your subscription to Penumbra eMagazine yet? If not, what are you waiting for? The story all y'all have been waiting for -- when Reader met Gower -- will be in the May issue. "Alien on the Runway" will be only one of the great stories in Penumbra's May issue, but I have two more shorts coming in this year. And, sure, you could just buy each issue separately for $3.99 each.

However, 'cause I'm a giver and so is the editorial staff at Penumbra, there's a special deal going. Right now, you can get The Gini Special -- instead of paying $3.99 an issue, you'll get a year's subscription for just $24.00; that's half price. But there's more! You'll also get the Best of Penumbra 2012 AND 2013. That's a full year's subscription for half price plus two free Best Of collections and three Alien series shorts that will only be available in Penumbra...as long as you use this coupon code (exactly as shown here) when you order: 2014Gini This offer is good only through August 1, 2014, so don't miss out and get your subscription going today!

That's it for today, but as always, more's on the way, but it'll be next week, seeing as I will be reunioning for the next few days. So, enjoy the downward slide towards the weekend and let's be readers out there. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!

Love,
Gini
