FREE BOOK PROMOTIONS! KICKSTARTER! MORE!
WOW, this has been a busy week!
By the time you read this on Sunday, I will have been doing things with the Corazon de Trinidad Creative District for the GET LIT festival.
We've had student workshops, meet and greets, a gala dinner, public workshops, a hike by the Purgatoire River, and a play, all since Thursday night.
Oh, and I managed to fit in my weekly visit to the local Farmer's Market.
Next week I'm going to be at the local chili festival - one of the rules I like is that none of the chilis can have beans, yay!
In October, I'm going to be in Denver - technically, Lakewood - doing a signing at the Second and Charles bookstore on Sunday, October 15, from noon to four. And then...
Then, I'm rolling to New Jersey!
If you're on the East Coast, I'll be at DerpyCon in October, in glorious New Brunswick, NJ! My flights and hotel are confirmed so let's do this thing!
I know my friend Noelle Kalipetis will be joining me on a panel, and I'll be doing plenty of speaking and Q&A's, so this is THE con to come and get to know me!

After that, there's a little gap, but not too long.
One more appearance booked for 2023, and that's as a vendor at the BRAND NEW sci-fi fandom convention, GalactiCon, right here in Denver!
For a new con, they're bringing in some names. Check it out:
I'll be sharing a table with my new friend Hayley Rae Johnson, a talented fantasy author. Sleep in on Black Friday and drop by the con to do your holiday shopping for all your geek needs! Get those tickets NOW while they're on sale! Buy HERE.
Right, that's it for conventions and appearances, so let's move on!
Who here knows Rachel Rener? I know I've talked about her quite a bit, appeared with her at conventions, and am fortunate enough to call her a friend.
Well, she's doing a Kickstarter to fund a beautiful omnibus edition of her Gilded Blood series, and...
Why don't I let her tell you about it?

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the site, Kıckstarter is a platform that lets backers support a creative endeavor as a community. It works just like a pre-order, but with the opportunity to unlock book upgrades and extra goodies for every order as the funding increases. It's also the only guaranteed way to get a copy.
Every foIIow, comment, and pIedge tells the Kıckstarter aIgorithm that this is a project that deserves to be pubIicized. 𝗦𝗼 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻 𝗶𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂'𝗿𝗲 𝘂𝗻𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝘀𝗽𝗹𝘂𝗿𝗴𝗲 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗼𝗺𝗻𝗶𝗯𝘂𝘀 𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲, 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝗱𝗼𝗜𝗜𝗮𝗿 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘀𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗻𝘁𝘀!
Regardless of the size of your pIedge, I cannot thank you enough for embarking on this adventure with me!
I am SO EXCITED to (hopefully) turn this dream project into reality!
OKAY, I'm back! So far she's smashed the first three stretch goals, so your support now comes with lots of bonuses!
This month's half-price book!
Actually, it's LESS than half price!
Add to your Artemis War collection with the book that dares ask what it means to be human.
What does it mean to be human? Kendra’s going to test those limits.
The Artemis Colony thought it would flatten the newborn Terran Federation, but Kendra Cassidy’s creation is still standing.
Both sides are bloodied but unbowed six months after the first shots were fired.
Realizing they can’t topple the Federation through force alone, Artemis digs into Kendra’s past and discovers a skeleton.
ow she must defend herself in space as well as the courts.
If she fails in either? Her Federation will fall.

I've got one last thing for you.

It's called Navigating Complicated Relationships, and it's about avoiding the rocks and shoals which we all seem to run into from time to time.
