October Cons and Festivals

This has been a busy month for EOLYN. 

Last weekend, we were at the Longview Literary Festival in Lee's Summit, Missouri.  It was a great afternoon.  Talked with old friends, met new ones, learned about some of the other writers groups in Kansas City, read and listened to stories, participated in a panel discussion, and all in all had a lot of fun.  Many thanks to the organizer Susan Satterfield for making it all happen.

On Oct 21-23, signed copies of EOLYN will be available at Mile High Con in Denver, CO.  Look for Who Else! Books among the vendors. 

Next week -- yes, next week already! -- is World Fantasy in San Diego.  I am so looking forward to this conference!  Events will kick off the evening of Wednesday, October 26, with a Meet and Greet the Authors Event at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in San Diego.  I'm also doing a panel or reading or something like that at the con itself, but the program hasn't been posted yet, so I can't give you the details.  I guess I'll just show up and take it as it comes.  When in doubt, look for me at the bar.  I will also be at the book signing party, along with several other Hadley Rille Books authors.

Speaking of Hadley Rille Books authors, this week on Heroines of Fantasy, Terri-Lynne DeFino has put up a fun post about the use of horses in fantasy fiction.  Stop by Heroines of Fantasy to read Terri's post and join in on the discussion.

That's the news for the moment.  I'm toying with the idea of doing a holiday raffle for EOLYN; stay tuned for more news about that.  And congratulations, once again, to Jared Lemons for winning a free signed copy of EOLYN as part of the Heroines of Fantasy Grand Opening Raffle.

Wishing everyone a great week.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
