So I went to RTbooklovers convention this year. It was a blast. So much fun and I met so many new people. It also took me a while to recover and sort through the massive piles of stuff I got. I’ll do a recap post in the next day or so, but in the meantime I’m giving you the chance to win one of two boxes full of stuff. Each box is guaranteed to have at least one autographed book, autographed swag, other books, bookmarks, postcards, trading cards, pins, and whatever else I can find to divvy up. Unfortunately due to shipping costs, this one has got to be US only. Sorry international peeps. I’ll do one for you closer to my release date.
I’ll also have a big announcement related to RT coming up soon, so stay tuned.

So book 2 is in to my editor. Waiting to hear back from her. I hope she likes it as much as I do. As predicted it was a dark, gut wrenching book to write. That being said, I love it. I might even like it better than the first book and y’all know how much I loved that one.
I am officially preparing to go back on submission. This time with my fantasy romance Enemy Hearts. Everytime I come back to this book I love it more. That’s a good thing. Wish me luck.
We are creeping ever so slowly toward my release day. And in a little less than a month I’ll be going to the RT booklovers convention which is an awesome convention I’ve always wanted to go to. This time its in my own backyard so of course I have to go. I can’t wait. It will also be my first public appearance as a published author even though the book won’t be out until fall.
Guess that’s it. What’s up with you guys?
So first off, let me say I’m still busy writing so nothing new to report there.
But after the day I’ve had today I want to say this: there is no value in tearing someone down just to tear them down. It gains you nothing. It makes you look little and petty and spiteful. If the matters that you are going to run your mouth about in no way concern you, maybe you should shut the hell up and reconsider. Let people live their lives and work their jobs. And you do the same.
If you spend so much time focused on someone else and what you can do to bring them down, to make their existence more difficult, you’re going to end up doing it to yourself. And they’re going to be standing on the sideline watching and enjoying the show.
Today I’m over at http://thewholeshebangsite.wordpress.com/ posting about the Evil Was and breaking the rules. It’s my first time posting at the site, but hopefully not the last. I really like the site and their content so far, though they are fairly new. You should definitely head over there and check out not only my post but everything else, too.
Just popping on to let you know I’m blogging about American Muscle over at Here Be Magic today. Head over and check it out! http://herebemagic.blogspot.com/
Today was Pinewood Derby day for the cubscouts. It was an eagerly anticipated day as I have both a tiger cub and a bear cub. My bear cub placed fourth out of 27 scouts which I thought was phenomenal. Very proud of him.
My tiger cub placed first out of the Tiger cubs and 3rd in the championship race! We were kind of stunned by that one. A big first derby for him. Very proud of him as well.
Perhaps what made me the proudest today was how excited my eldest was for his little brother. Even though he didn’t win in his heats and didn’t get to go on to the Championship himself, there was no resentment or foul moods. He was right there cheering his brother on, even jumping up and down when he won first. That let me know we’re doing something right as parents.
Yes, that right I have an official release date.
Realm Walker – Book One of the Juliana Norris Novels will be released on 10-28-2013.
While that may seem a long time off, it’s not really. And I think Halloween week is an absolutely perfect time for it to be released. It totally fits the dark theme of the book. Anyway, just wanted to share.
Also I will be a regular blogger at Here be Magic – the link is in the sidebar. It’s a group of paranormal and fantasy authors that have invited me into their ranks. I’ll let you know when I have a post up over there. It’s an awesome blog though so you should just check it out anyway. I think that’s it for the moment.
