Roundups and Winning

Happy Hump Day! Well, I've been promising two things -- recaps of my NYC trip and LepreCon and a Hook Me Up! exclusive contest to give away all the stuff I picked up in NYC and at LepreCon.

The memory is a bit fuzzy, since I've been working nonstop on first getting "Alien Proliferation" edits done and in to DAW, and then working on getting "Alien Diplomacy" finished, but here are the highlights!

Had a great time in NYC and surrounding areas, but the best times were seeing Alien Collective Members in Very Good Standing all through the week, leading up to the big day in Grand Central Terminal, with the book signing at Posman Books, and at dinner later. The food was great, the company was better! Thanks again to everyone who came out -- especially because you did it in the very heavy rain. And, I don't think it's bragging to say that Posman sold out of every copy of my books. Thanks SO much to all of you who made that happen!

I also visited a variety of editors, and got my hands on a variety of books. But more on that later...

LepreCon was a lot of fun and they kept me nice and busy. Got to run the yap a lot, sign books, share the first sketch for the cover of and read excerpts from "Alien Proliferation". (Reminder to those in the room: No sharing those spoilers!)

I also got to hang with the awesome Marsheila Rockwell, as well as be on panels with the hilarious Christopher Baldwin, the ever amazing triple-threat Seanan McGuire, new author Kevin Hearne, the always fun Michael D'Ambrosio, the sweet Janni Lee Simner, the fun and snarky Chris Swanson, as well as many other awesome authors and fan panelists. (I have to stop listing folks...I was on a LOT of panels!) Plus I got to see several Alien Collective Members in Very Good Standing (waves madly) for more than a few minutes, which was great.

Oh, and I picked up posters. Movie posters. Huge ones, large ones, regular sized ones. Lots of them. Tons of them. Cascades of them. But...more on that later...

Well, why wait, right? I've got Poster Packs. They include such gems as "Black Swan", "Your Highness", "Twilight", "Saw", "Legion" (because you can never see that shot of Paul Bettany's abs enough), "Limitless", "Priest", "Green Hornet" and more, so very many more. And books? We have books, too.

So, what's a girl to do? Why, give them all away, of course! There are going to be a variety of poster packs up for grabs, many of which will include books. So, watch this space for the official contest start (coming before the end of this week...because Phoenix Comicon is just around the corner, and you KNOW I'm coming home with swag from that). Until then, get your trash talking skills out of mothballs, because we're back, baby, better than ever!

Oh, unless you're not on Hook Me Up! yet. Then, there's nothing to see here. But, you can rectify that situation. Just send an email to with "Hook Me Up!" in the subject line and you'll be in. But do it fast, because the winning waits for no one!

Did you get a copy of Kevin Hearne's book? If you did, I hope it's part of the giveaway! Looking forward to the giveaway.

I didn't, and am kicking myself. However, I think he'll be at Phoenix Comicon, so that error should be rectified. ;-D
