Coastal Magic 2019

I’ll be one of the attending authors at Coastal Magic 2019, a wonderful reader convention in Daytona Beach, Florida. Next year’s event takes place February 28 to March 3 and is the seventh annual CM. I’ve attended this convention twice in the past and really enjoyed it both times.

There will be a booksigning, which is open to the public. You’ll be able to pre-order books from me closer to the date. I’ll put up a form at the first of the year, plus you can order anything available in my Selz store and pick it up at the booksigning.

Reader registration is open right here.

See you at the beach!

BookCon

BookCon is a reader conference associated with BookExpo, the annual publishing industry trade show. This year, both conferences will be held in Chicago at McCormick Place, and BookCan will be on Saturday May 14. There’s information about the event, including ticket information, right here.

The Crusader's Bride, a medieval romance by Claire DelacroixI’ll be signing copies of The Crusader’s Bride in the Romance Writers of America booth on Saturday, May 14, as part of BookCon. (Exact time TBD.) I’ll also have some swag to give away.

I hope to see you there!

November BookSignings

One thing I love to do are reader events and booksignings, so I’m excited to be participating in two signings that are coming up in November. There’s also an awesome reader event coming up in May 2016—that’s a ways out, but you’ll want to book your spot for that one now.

First will be Words, a book festival in London Ontario that includes a booksigning event. I’ll be on a panel with Zoe York and Carolyn Arnold about Self-Publishing for Genre Fiction Writers at 11 AM on November 7, then be signing from 10 – 4. The event will be held at Covent Garden Market in downtown London, Ontario.

I usually offer show specials when I do a booksigning like this – if you buy linked books, you get a discount. When you buy a bundle, you also get a tote bag to carry the books home!

If you plan to attend and want to ensure you get specific titles from me, I have a pre-order form right here. You can pay in advance, or just know how much cash to bring. (I don’t take credit cards.)

Next up will be Bookapalooza in Whitby Ontario on November 21. This promises to be a fun event—partly because I know a lot of other authors who will be in attendance!—and a good day. I have my fingers crossed that there won’t be any snow that day!

Once again, I have a pre-order form online, and you can find it right here.

Finally, there’s Eve’s Romancing the Capital reader event, which will be next May in Ottawa. Eve has added some workshops on Thursday afternoon, and I’ll be teaching one, as well as participating in a panel discussion about publishing.

There are a lot of fun events for readers on Friday and Saturday (including my event Knights Vs. Dragons, and a panel discussion called Dragons are a Girl’s Best Friend, which I’m looking forward to) plus author/reader speed-dating AND a booksigning on Saturday.

Check your calendar and book yourself in to this event, which will be a great time. I’ll have a pre-order form for books closer to the date.

I couldn’t talk about events without inviting the boys!

At the shows, it’ll be easy to find me—because the boys travel with me.

I hope to see you at one or all of these events!

Knights & Dragons

When I went to Romancing the Capital in Ottawa in April, I was amazed by all the swag and signage that authors had. I realized that I needed to lift my game!

You’ve seen my new tote bags, but here are the other new additions to my booksigning kit. Meet the boys:

banners

These are retractable floor banners that are about six feet tall. The idea was that the designs would ensure that I could use them for a year or two, since I don’t do that many signings per year. I’m really happy with them – even though I had to rearrange my office in order to set them up.

What do you think?

Signing at Lori Foster’s RAGT

This weekend, I’ll be at Lori Foster’s Reader-Author Get Together in West Chester Ohio. I’ve wanted to go to this event for a long time, so am really excited about attending this year.

At the book fair, I’ll be signing and selling copies of Serpent’s Kiss, The Highlander’s Curse, and Abyss, plus I think they’re going to order copies of Kiss of Fire and Flying Blind. I’ll also be donating some baskets with books and goodies for the raffle. (See yesterday’s post about that.)

Hope to see you there!
