The premiere for House of Thirteen is this Saturday, Nov. 7. I am looking very forward to this. The Book Cottage is kind enough to host me, and I’d like to make it as wonderful as possible. Please consider sharing the image around to let others in the area know about it. Thanks, and I hope to see you there.
It’s been awhile since I’ve done an event. I have to say, I’ve missed them. They are a lot of fun, on both sides of the table. I love talking to people who stop by the table, whether they want to talk about my books, the magic of idea crafting, or the art of writing itself. I also really enjoy my boothmates. An event is really only as much fun as the people you surround yourself with and this time around, I’m pulling out all the stops.
September 13, in the Kerrytown district of Ann Arbor is the 13th annual Kerrytown Bookfest. Not only will I be there, but I will have books, and merchandise, and ye olde Bad Drawings sketch pad. I’ll also be sharing my space with fellow author J. Thomas-Like, who will also be offering her wonderful words to the masses. And right next door, I’m proud to say we’ll be neighboring with Kate of ChicalooKate – it promises to be some awesome fun YOU should be a part of!
I don’t want to ruin all the surprises, but I will say that this is the first time you will be able to purchase Empty Hallways and House of Thirteen notebooks and magnets!

After much delay, pain and struggle with characters that had no desire to follow an attractive story arc (seriously, I think only two groups understand the burden of fictional beings that don’t listen to their creators: writers and the insane… I really hope I’m a writer) House of 13 is back on a very optimistic track and progressing toward a wonderful finish. I have decided to stop at the end of the current section and unwind the rest of the night with 51,000 words down on the page. Continue reading
Today, 9am – 3pm, I will be in the St. Clair Shores Public Library parking lot, entertaining passersby and making a modest attempt to sell my book. Continue reading

Making the rounds of my regular haunts on the internet last night, I discovered a new review of my book. It’s short, and only two stars, but I hesitate to call it “negative”. Continue reading
