The Diversified Author Presentation

I’ve attached the Power Point presentation used during my lecture at The Fredericksburg Writers’ Conference on March 28th:

The Diversified Author

Fun at AggieCon 44

My daughter Candace and I had a blast in College Station this past weekend exhibiting in the dealers’ room at AggieCon. We met so many awesome folks and learned how to make costume wings, special effects with makeup, and wire jewelry. We also bought an elder wand!

Here’s a photo of Candace in front of our exhibit.


Cover Reveal Party for The Gatekeeper’s Daughter at YA Teen Readers!

You are all invited to a really fun Cover Reveal Party for book three on Facebook (lots of fun games and prizes with a great group of people) this Friday (3/22) at YA Teen Readers.

If you can’t view the event, friend me on Facebook and I’ll send you a FB invite!

To play, you’ll have to tell us which god/goddess you’d most like to be and why, and which god/goddess you’d most like to date. I’ll also ask a few Greek mythology related questions, and the first ones to answer correctly win prizes!

Prizes? What prizes you ask?

Some of them are duplicates of those you can win on May 1st at the Release-Day Party:

A Sterling Silver Bracelet, Hera’s Peacock Earrings, Athena’s Snake Toe Ring, Pomegranate-Scented Sachets, Dark Chocolate Pomegranate, Midnight Pomegranate Body Lotion from Bath and Body Works, and paperback and ebook versions of the first two books.

So please stop by to join the fun!

More Swag!

Dark Chocolate Pomegranate and Pomegranate Scented Sachets! Can anyone guess why these items make great swag for the release-day party for the final book in The Gatekeeper’s Trilogy?
