So Much Goin' On (Like Winning)
First up, a reminder of where I'll be this month and next, particularly because once I head out later this week, I'm going to be very silent on HMU/the Blog because I'll be traveling, signing, running my yap, and more. Remember that you can pre-order Alien Separation from all of these bookstores STILL. You can also order from them and get Alien Separation and any other book of mine signed and personalized and shipped to you. So, come see the me at:
Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore, Mysterious Galaxy 22nd Birthday Bash, Saturday May 9th from 11am-5pm. I'll be on at 2pm, which is right after the cake! Food With Fans will happen immediately after the party is over.
Barnes and Noble Henderson, with the Amazing Wyked Writers, Sunday, May 17th from 1pm-4pm. Come hear six cool authors -- moi, T.L. Smith, Sharon Skinner, Alan Black, Marsheila Rockwell, and Jeffrey Mariotte -- talk about all things writing and get a whole lot of books signed! Food With Fans will happen immediately after the party is over.
Phoenix Comicon, Thursday, May 28th through Sunday, May 31st. I'll be in Author's Alley, the AWW Tables are #s 17115, 17117, and 17119. There will be a cool basket of goodies some lucky winner will walk away with! Food With Fans will be on Friday evening, May 29th, and the Evening Erotica event will be on Saturday evening. I'll also be at the Steampunk Tea Room and on panels. My full schedule (ever changing as the con gets closer) and every other author's attending is on the Authors Page at the con site.
The Poisoned Pen Bookstore, End of Tour Party, Monday June 8th, 7pm-8pm. This is the one for everyone, because even if you can't come in person (and will therefore miss many prizes and lots of goodies) you can attend simultaneously via the LiveStream event. All LiveStream attendees will also get a chance to win a prize! (There will be no Food With Fans event after this, but we've made up for it with goodies at the event.)
And now, let's check out some reviews of Alien Separation, just to get you all ready for tomorrow's release day! See what Pearls Cast Before a McPig, Tome Tender, Bibliognome, and boeklogboek thought of it. Warning: the boeklogboek review has some early-in-the-book spoilers in it. Then check out Bibliognome's favorite lines from the book (spoilers are hidden).
Then see what Rich's Random Book Blog thought of Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets. And if you need more reading ideas, see what Science Fiction by Mr. Valentine has listed coming out this month. And Penguin Random House has the info up for Alien in Chief! No, no cover yet -- I just gave Dan some details last week so it'll be a while before that cover gets to premiere (though it's never too early to pre-order, hint hint, ;-D).
After that, head over to Slice of SciFi and see what I thought of The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
And now for some science! First up, stay at Slice of SciFi because T.L. Smith has asked five friends, including moi, about FTL travel. After you see what we all have to say about it, check out Raw Story where NASA talks about their latest warp drive tests!
And now, what you've all been waiting for. That's right, it's giveaway time! And for longtime Hook Me Up! subscribers, we're trying things a little differently this time. (Oooh, the excitement!) There are two contests, one for Hook Me Up! subscribers only, and one here at the Blah, Blah, Blah Blog. The one for Hook Me Up! subscribers only is for signed copies of Alien Separation. The one here (below the signature line) is for a signed copy of any one of the first ten books in the Alien series. Yes, Hook Me Up! subscribers can enter both contests, but if you're not on, you can only enter here at the Blog. So, if you're not on Hook Me Up! now might be the time to get in gear and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Hook Me Up!" in the subject line. You'll get in with the in-crowd and have the Alien Separation contest link sent to you.
Both contests are open internationally, both have multiple ways for you to get extra entries, and both will run from today through Friday, May 22nd. So get those entries going and good luck to everyone!
That's it for today, and while more's on the way, it's unlikely that I'm going to have much time this month to do updates (other than on Facebook and Twitter and occasionally Pinterest). So, let's be winning, Alien Separation reading, signing and con attending readers out there. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!
