Chardon Library Event

Saturday, April 13 from 1 – 3 pm the Chardon Library will hold the annual Local Author Fair.  Book lovers of all kinds should put this on your calendar and come out to meet the people who write some of the books you love.  Maybe you’ll find a new favorite author.

I’ll be there so drop by and say hi.  Can’t wait to see you.

Welcoming Spring

Spring is coming and I can’t wait.  Already daffodils are poking up with their sunny yellow flowers.  That’s why I’m discounting one of my best-selling ebooks.  Shepherds.  It will be on sale starting March 15 through March 31 at retailers everywhere.  An action-packed scifi romance with some adult content.  Merfolk but not fantasy, murder and survival.

At Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002NGO2TO

Almost every other retail outlet: https://books2read.com/u/38D9yO

Also available as an audio book at Apple though not on sale.  https://books.apple.com/us/audiobook/shepherds/id1705921728

Indie Author Bash

Less than two weeks away.  Join me for a HUGE author book signing at Pretty Good Books 4535 Main Ave.  Ashtabula, Ohio.  

Noon to 4 PM

Meet 29 authors, get books signed, every genre.

Plan to visit and talk books with people who write them.  

On top of that, you’ll meet some really nice people.


News Update Books, Books, Books 

If you are wondering what I’m doing and when will there be a new book, here’s an update.

The Galiwee Visions Series book 3 is at the editor.  She’s halfway done with it.  The cover is coming along nicely.  I think you’ll be impressed when I do the reveal.  As the book gets closer to a publication date, I’ll be looking for a few people willing to receive an ARC to read and review.

Work on the prequel fantasy trilogy continues.  First drafts are complete for books 1 and 2 and book 3 is taking shape.  There’s about 25k words down with a lot more to go.  I am making progress.

The script for War Party has been completely formatted and revisions will start soon.

Plus, I am working on a delightful fantasy short story about a girl who finds a magic stone.  The biggest problem for her is that the rightful owner wants it back.  Hmm, what will she do?

Here’s hoping everyone finds great books to read.

Until next time, stay well.


What is an ARC?

As I get nearer to publication of book 3 in the #GaliweeVisions Series, I will be looking for ARC reviewers.  Maybe you aren’t familiar with that term.  It stands for Advanced Review Copy.  What it means is that ARC reviewers get a copy of an unreleased book before publication, often prior to final editing is complete.  They are asked to read the book and be prepared to post an honest review on the date of publication.  This usually gives the book a kick start as far as sales and attention.  When the book is published the reviewer posts their review and rating with the caveat that they received an ARC.

Anyone interested?  Think about it.  I will try to give volunteer reviewers about 3 weeks advance notice to read the book and be ready to post reviews.  More on this later.

In the meantime, stay healthy and read something that makes you smile.


Bookstores Worth Visiting

There are a lot of independent bookstores around that need your business.  While not every bookstore has my books on their shelves, here are a few that do, at least right now.  And almost any bookstore can order my books.

In Ashtabula, Ohio, check out Pretty Good Books 4535 Main Ave.  

In Chagrin Falls, Ohio, stop in to Fireside Book Shop, 29 N. Franklin St.

In St. Louis, MO, go visit Spine Indie Bookstore and Café, 1982 Arsenal St.  Not just a book store but a fun café with multiple events every week.

At some of these you might have to ask for my books since they aren’t going to be on the best seller lists.  And whether you are interested in one of my books or not, these are great places to buy books.

If you can’t get there in person, you can always order almost any book through www.bookshop.org and credit your local independent book seller.
