And today I was interviewed by Peter Salomon, author of the fantastic and very popular YA Horror novel, Henry Franks. There’s a giveaway over there, too, for a copy of Fighting Gravity. Because you’ll want to read that before you get to Cascade Effect.

What Better Way to Celebrate a New Book?

April 2, 2013

Than by drinking and having a party!!

BookLaunch3In all seriousness, what better way to celebrate a new book than by drinking and having a party? Am I right? Or to celebrate the fact that books exist at all!

If you’re a teetotaler, don’t feel left out. Any beverage works, and you can party with us in spirit. To celebrate the Cascade Effect Launch, hosted by Futurecon, Good Times for Good Causes, we’re going to have lots of fun with Booze and a Book!

The kickoff day for Booze and a Book is Friday, April 5, 2013.

Starting that day, and through the weekend, post a picture on our subreddit of yourself (or a friend) with a book and a beverage. If you’re camera shy, post a short description.

The post with the most upvotes by Tuesday April 9 at 8:00 EST will win books and booze!

FG page books(Well, a $25 Amazon gift card and a $25 Visa gift card, because no way are we going to jail for alcohol trafficking or sending alcohol to a minor on the internet who told us he was 35.)

Follow the hashtag on Twitter #boozeandabookday, or join us on reddit.

I Hate Email Newsletters

March 26, 2013

Don’t you? Well, some are okay. The ones that come rarely and then and tell me something I really want to know.CASCADE_EFFECT_COVER_web

Well, one thing I DO want to know is when an author I love has a new book out. And it’s just too easy to miss the notification on Twitter or Facebook or Amazon. (Though Goodreads has a nice notification feature. You should check it out.)

But back to the point I came here to make. Would you like to know when MY books are available?

To help you with that, I’ve set up a nifty newsletter. Right now I have a book or anthology I’m in coming out about twice a year. It’s unlikely to last at that pace, but it’s nice right now. What that means for you is that if you sign up for the newsletter, you’ll get an email from me about twice a year or less, just to let you know when you can get my latest book.

Sound like something you’re interested in?

CASCADE EFFECT book launch, hosted by Futurecon!

March 21, 2013

I’m so excited about this I could pop. And there wasn’t any innuendo in that, so you know I’m really excited, cause I didn’t even stop to think up something dirty.

I’ve already gushed about this a bit in other posts, but here’s the full details and the announcement poster the lovely J.M. Frey designed and put together for us. We’re having a CASCADE EFFECT LAUNCH Party Friday, April 5, at Ad Astra Con hosted by Futurecon, Good Times for Good Causes!BookLaunch3
