News, interviews, and appearances

Despite signing a waiver which stated that I could die during my firearms training this weekend, I have returned safe and sound from the Writers' Police Academy. I cannot recommend this conference enough. I learned a ton and came home with pages and pages of notes. In fact, so much material was covered, I'm not ready to blog about it yet. I need to go through my notes and pull pictures from my camera, so look for a post on the academy to hit the blog Wednesday.

Why not tomorrow?

Easy. Tomorrow I will be interviewing Rachel Vincent, the amazing author behind the Shifters and Soul Screamers series. You don't want to miss this one, so make sure you stop by the blog tomorrow. 

And speaking of interviews, I'm being interviewed over at All Things Urban Fantasy today. (Yes, today. Go read it!) Leave a comment or question to enter the drawing for a signed copy of Grave Witch.

Also, my interview at Penguin.com  is now live! Find out more about Death, who I'd talk to if I had my heroine's ability, and even my favorite word. It's a very fun interview, so check it out.

These interviews mark the very first stops on my blog tour. I'll be popping up all over the blogsphere over the next couple weeks, so watch for links to guest posts, interviews, and of course, giveaways. I'm adding links to the tour to the front page of my website. I'll also be tweeting (and by proxy updating facebook)  live links as I find them, so if you follow or friend me on either of those social media sites, you'll be the first to know where to find where I'll be on any given day.

And speaking of appearances, I have two local signings I'm please to announce:
  • Friday, October 8th I'll have my release party at the Barnes and Noble on Forest Drive from 7pm until 9pm. (Address: 3400 Forest Drive, Columbia, SC 29204 phone: 803-787-5600)
  • I'll also be having a "Halloween signing" on Saturday, October 30th at the Books-A-Million in  Sandhills from 1pm until 3pm.  (Address: 164 Forum Dr. Columbia, SC 29229 phone: 803-788-4349)
If you are in or around Columbia or the surrounding areas, I hope you'll stop by and pick up a signed book. These are my first ever signings at bookstores, and I'm terrified of being one of those authors sitting behind an untouched mound of her books who everyone is avoiding eye contact with. So, if you could  stop by and say 'hi' that would be awesome. I'll bring candy. (Yes, I'm not above bribing . . . )

Okay, I think I should wrap up there. Don't forget to checkout my interviews at All Things Urban Fantasy today and Penguin.com. Also, stop back by here tomorrow to read me play the part as interviewer and ask Rachel several questions about the upcoming final book in her Shifters series.

Have a great Monday everyone!

I don't have time right now, just on the way out the door for Girl Scouts with the twins, but I'll be back to check out those interviews later. Way to go!

I hope you blog about the conference soon, too. Can't wait to hear about it.

I might be able to stop by...I live very close to the Books-A-Million!

Lynnette, I'll definitely post about the academy on Wednesday, though with as much as was crammed into those three days, I might need more than one post.

I hope to see you then, Kailia!
