The Pasadena, TX Barnes & Noble Booksellers is hosting a canned food drive for the Houston Food Bank, which will culminate at the Get Your Greek On Toga Party and Author Event on November 1st.

For each canned good, participants will receive one raffle ticket. Those who come in costume (don’t have one? Wear a sheet!) will receive TWO raffle tickets.

What will these raffle tickets get you, you ask? Entry into a raffle, of course. And the booksellers will be raffling off our favorite things: BOOKS!

We will also have an estimation jar from Hades, Greek mythology bingo, Greek mythology jeopardy, and a costume contest with lots of other prizes, including a 2015 Medusa Calendar, buttons, snake rings, Starbucks gift cards, and other surprises. Best of all, you’ll hear from authors Nely Cab, Tera Lynn Childs, Kristen Day, and PJ Hoover. (And I’ll be there, too, of course.) This should be fun for the whole family.

Greek Mythology Bingo Game LidWe will be there from 3 pm to 6 pm. Here’s the address:

Fairway Market Place

Your canned goods will really help some folks with their meals over the holidays.

And by the way, a big thank you to those who purchased their limited copy of the Otherworlds boxed set. We raised $100 for Feeding America!

So Much Time and So Little to Write! Wait a Minute. Strike That. Reverse It. Thank You.

Exciting things are happening to me over the next few weeks!

First and foremost is the Get Your Greek On Toga Party and Author Event at the Pasadena, TX Barnes and Noble (Houston Area) on November 1st! From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., a handful of authors and I will run games, give away prizes, tell you a bit about ourselves, and sign your books!

We will start off with a guestimation jar from Hades. Be the one with the closest guess as to how many rings, candies, and plastic bugs are in the jar, and it’s yours! Share them with all your friends, or hoard them for yourself.

Then each author will tell you about herself and her books. Nely Cab, Tera Lynn Childs, Kristen Day, P.J. Hoover, and I have some awesome things to share with you!

After our introductions, we’ll play a few rounds of Greek Mythology Bingo! You’ll learn about forty different gods, goddesses, heroes, and mythological beings–but you’ll be having so much fun trying to win, you won’t realize you’re learning! Among other fabulous prizes, winners can choose from a 2015 Medusa Calendar or an “I’m a Book G[R]EEK” t-shirt. After you’ve learned everything there is to know about Greek mythology (or almost), we’ll put your knowledge to the test with Greek Mythology Jeopardy. Find the game on this website if you’d like to practice before the event!

We’ll end the event with a costume contest (yes, dress like the gods! Don’t have a costume? Wear a sheet!), followed by a signing. Here’s the address, in case you can make it:

Always be yourself… that was the last advice Scout’s Grandma Nora gave her before she died. Scout has spent her life trying to be anything but, but she has a chance to start anew as she moves several states away to college. She had always thought the glowing aura she saw around some people was a childhood fancy, but when it starts coming back just as she’s starting her new life, she learns there was much hidden about who she truly is.

Thankfully, she has a motley crew to help her along the way: a spunky bookseller, a trustworthy pub owner, a commanding grandmother, a possible best friend, and a hot rocker boy who only has eyes for her.

Unless You Can Be A Unicorn is a New Adult Paranormal Romance with content appropriate for a Young Adult audience.

The End of Therese’s Journey, and Mine

Gatekeeper's Daughter Ebook CoverWhen I first planned out The Gatekeeper’s Saga back in 2010, it was actually The Gatekeeper’s Trilogy. I was amazed by the outreach from readers asking me to please continue the series. I was more than happy to comply to their wishes, because I wasn’t ready to let go of the characters yet, either.

Even now, I am actually crying like a baby as I write this post. Yes, my kids probably think I need to be admitted! But I am sitting here sobbing because I am so overwhelmed with emotions.

I am, first of all, HAPPY that I was able to accomplish what seemed like the most daunting ambition to the newbie author I was four years ago. The idea putting ONE book out into the universe to be loved (or not) by readers was terrifying enough, not to mention three, and then six! Thankfully, the majority of readers have loved Therese’s story (more than not), and I’m proud of myself for finishing it. I am truly satisfied with the ending I gave to my beloved characters.

But I am also SAD! Oh, here come the tears again! I am SAD that I won’t be crafting more adventures for my favorite cast of characters. Their adventures continue, but not in my books (at least, not until I write Hermes and Hestia! When I write that book, I will be able to visit the entire cast again, even though they will all be secondary characters. That book isn’t slated to be written for another year, but at least I’m not saying goodbye forever!).

And I am also EXCITED! I can’t wait to read what everyone thinks of the conclusion to GatekeepersPromiseEbook finalmy biggest project to date. So please, please, please! Hurry up and read and tell me what you think! I will be anxiously scouring Goodreads and all the retailers for your reviews!

I am also DETERMINED to give you more adventurous stories and lovable characters to make you want to read and read and read! For readers of suspense, The final book in The Purgatorium Series will release in mid-February. And for those of you who can’t get enough gods and goddesses, I’m working on The Vampires of Athens–a three-book series which combines Greek mythology and vampire lore.

And, finally, I am GRATEFUL to all of you for your support, encouragement, and feedback. I can’t speak for all writers, but for me, the best part of creating stories is reading the reactions written by readers in their reviews, tweets, and Facebook posts. Every time I stumble upon a phrase like, “This whole saga is amazing!”, my soul soars! I just love knowing that my creations have given others an exciting ride. (There’s probably a name for that. It’s probably some kind of disorder. And probably most artists suffer from it.)

So thank you for going the journey with me! I hope you will tag along for the rest of the ride!

If you’d like to celebrate the release of this final book with me and some of the characters from the saga, please join us on Facebook on October 1st at 7 PM CST. Ten games and ten prizes!

Book Conference Fun at Penned Con and More!

Penned Con Arch

I had such a blast attending Penned Con in St. Louis last week! The conference was organized by Rick and Amy Miles to raise money for Action Against Autism and to celebrate authors and readers. Over $11,000 dollars were raised and hundreds of writers, readers, and other industry professionals attended. I enjoyed the panels and presentations and learned lots !of valuable info. I especially enjoyed hearing Mark Coker, of Smashwords, speak. I have so much admiration for what he has done for self-publishing!

Did you know that there's a Parthenon in St. Louis? It's on top of a building!

I was also excited to meet up with my author friends– especially Alison Pensy and Susan Burdorf. It was also AMAZING to see members from my street team in person and to share fun times with them! My “Eva’s Divas” are all so creative, smart, and beautiful! One of these days, I will be reading THEIR published works!

Speaking of published works, I made quite a few new author friends whose books sound awesome! Needless to say, my TBR list grows longer by the minute!


I'm reading for Raquel.

Although I didn’t get to spend time with nearly enough people, I had a blast reading cards, visiting at the hotel bar, dining at Maggie O’Brien’s, and walking the streets of St. Louis with people I adore!
