It's Release Day!

Happy Camp Alien release day! I'm heading out for Book Tour at the end of the week (more on that later) but there's much going on, starting with what all y'all have been waiting for -- Camp Alien is here!

And it's here in style! Barnes and Noble chose it as one of their top picks for May! Check out what they said and then see what Pearls Cast Before a McPig, Live to Read, Under the Covers, and Night Owl Reviews also thought of it!

Come see the me to get your copies of Camp Alien signed! I'll be at the Mysterious Galaxy Birthday Bash on Saturday, May 7. I'll be at the store by 2pm, because I'll be interviewed live by the geektitude podcast at 2:30. For a preview of what's to come, check out geektitude epidsode 28 that has an interview with MG owner and all around cool chick, Maryelizabeth Yturralde. Cake at 3:00, then I'll be on a panel with Marie Andreas, Jonathan Maberry, and Sharon Skinner at 3:30. SO MUCH FUN! Food With Fans after the signing.

On Saturday, May 14, I'll be with the Amazing Wyked Writers at Barnes and Noble Henderson for a mass signing from 2:00-5:00pm. (Due to my also being in Vegas for StokerCon, no Food With Fans event after the signing this time.)

I'll be hitting bookstores around my particular tri-state area, and the End of Tour stop will be at the Poisoned Pen on Monday, May 23, 7:00-8:00pm.  Yes, there will be cake! There will also be a LiveStream of the event, info to come. (Due to the hour, no Food With Fans after this event. But hey, cake!)

After making all your plans to get your bookie wookies signed and all that jazz, see what Night Owl Reviews thought of Alien in Chief.

Then see what Mutt Cafe and Starburst Magazine thought of alt.sherlock.holmes: Three New Visions of the World's Greatest Detective.

And, for those of you who will have already devoured Camp Alien by the time you read this (I know you're out there and you're legion), a reminder that Plush Life is there to fill the void. You can get it from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, and CreateSpace. So you'll still have things to read, I promise.

Speaking of things to read, have you checked out the MECH: Age of Steel Kickstarter anthology yet? If not, why not? There's only 10 days to go to ensure that it funds and we reach the artwork level -- and, trust me, you want the artwork! Plus, I have one tuckerization still available in my story, "Jaegermeister". If you've ever wanted to be a character in one of my stories, now's your chance to get in on the fun.

Lots of people are talking about MECH, too. Check out the Kickstarter Spotlight at Geeks of Doom where they interview one of the editors, Nick Sharps. And Ragnarok and Roll, D&D Journey of the Fifth Edition, and Creative Play and Podcast are all talking about MECH, too!

Speaking of talking and just for fun, check out The Renaissance Geek Episodes 5 and 6, Drinking with Jason #22 featuring my (brand new) son-in-law, Kenny. Then check out Creative Play and Podcast's Steampunk Invasion.

After that, find out why Misa Buckley writes Sci Fi Romance.

Hugo Nominations are final, and my awesome editor, Sheila Gilbert, is nominated again in the Editor: Long Form category. She's so very deserving, and I'd like to encourage everyone to vote for her. Remember that even if you can't attend WorldCon, you can get the Hugo Voter's Packet and that gives you a tonnage of books to read and the right to vote for who wins the Hugos.


Now, for some science! Quartz has more info on that ninth -- or is it tenth, Pluto Supporters -- planet that's lurking about our solar system.

Last but not least is a reminder that Phoenix Comicon is coming, June 2-5. And with it, my Evening Erotica event where we learn a little and play a lot -- and by play I mean the Euphemism Game! Make plans to join me along with some special guests on Friday, June 3, from 7:30-10:30pm. Tons of prizes, tons of fun, so don't miss out! The rest of my schedule and booth location to come.

That's it for today, but as always, more's on the way, albeit sporadically since I'll be traveling. See many of you on book tour, and all of you have wonderful weeks. Let's be happy readers out there. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!

Love,
Gini

Hi, Ver nice post and thank you so much for sharing. I am a writer focused on career and physical development to spread more issues and tips to develop and works through professional resume writing service. Riveting non-stop action and hilarity ensue in the latest installment from talented Ms. Koch. Kitty is back and she is not happy. She prefers action to politics. It was bad enough having to serve as an ambassador. Then she became the vice-president's wife when Jeff was selected to be VP. Now, with the president dead, Kitty is the First Lady. First Ladies have to pick out staff, make sure that all the ins and outs of politics are on point. These are not Kitty's strong points. Kitty is better and unmasking the super villain and riding in to save the day.

Hey Gini,

Love the Alien series. Really great work. I just wanted to give you a tip on the iBooks store series tricks. It has the ability to present your books as series in the iBooks App, if you set it the field for it when you load your books in iBookstore. The good thing about that, is that you can see all the books purchased for a series such as yours and then present you with all the books in the series still to be purchased with the price in green in the corner. But have to activate the series field. I.E....

Check out Denise Grover Swank Rose Gardner Mystery Series. (Excellent, by the way, if you have not read any)

Up by the Title, you'll see:

Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes
A Rose Gardner Mystery
Book 1, Rose Gardner Mystery
Denise Grover Swank

In Information you'll see:

Language English
Category Women Sleuths
Publisher DGS
Seller Denise Swank
Published Jul 1, 2011

The Series field makes a huge difference in presentation and sometimes purchasing the next book in the series. If you have an iPhone, you can check you these options for your own books. They're great.
