Wow. I can't believe it's that time of year already: Orycon is this weekend! I'll be attending the convention Friday-Sunday (if you see me in the hall or after a panel, come up and say hi! I come to these kinds of things to visit and have fun, and would love to chat.) and THEN I'll be a part of the huge Sci-Fi Authorfest at Powell's Books over in Beaverton.
After that (next Friday, the 14th) I'll be in Seattle at the University Bookstore for a signing with Diana Pharaoh Francis and Leah Cutter, and at the end of the month, I'll be at our local (Salem, Oregon) Book Bin for Indies First Day.
Here is my schedule for these awesome events:
Sunday, November 9 - 4:00 pm

If you love fantasy, then this reading, signing, and panel discussion with authors Diana Pharoh Francis, Devon Monk, and Leah Cutter should not be missed. Although they'll certainly have much to share, we're especially excited to learn more about their recently released books and the exciting new adventures they begin.
Trace of Magic by Francis introduces us to Riley Hollis, a young woman whose magical ability to trace anyone and anything pulls her into a dangerous mystery, House Immortal by Monk draws us into battle for survival between those made immortal by the thread that stitches their bodies together and those who seek to claim their power for themselves, and The Changeling Troll by Cutter tells the story of a young woman who meets her exact twin just before the entire world around her starts to unravel.
