A Little Catch Up

I’ve had an amazing year as a debut author, and before CLANLESS, the second book of the NAMELESS series, releases on October 4th, I need to do a little blogging repentance and update this UPDATES page.

In the past year, I’ve had the chance to do book signings in book stores, Comic Con, writers conferences, and schools from the west coast to the east coast.

During my interview with the Kit Lit Drink Night podcast in Raleigh, NC, I was exposed to perhaps the greatest drink combination of all time: Pepsi and peanuts! Glorious!

Had the full southern experience by eating  fried chicken on a sweet potato pancake the size of a basketball. (no, I didn’t come close to finishing it!) No wonder the south didn’t rise again. I could barely get out of my chair at the restaurant after attempting that meal.

This Wilmington, NC donut shop was amazing. I still haven’t forgiven my local tour guide for insisting upon the stop.

I’ve been to visit multiple schools in multiple states. There really is nothing better than connecting with teens and sharing a love for literacy and big goals.

I enjoy challenging teens to put themselves on the page. I’ve had the privilege of working with some great teen writers over the course of this year. These teens in South Carolina were particularly impressive.

attachment-1I’m excited for the next chapter in my publishing journey!

The CLANLESS release party is on October 4th at 7:00 pm at the Provo Library. There will be some fun activities for kids (and adults!) as well as a brief presentation about CLANLESS, followed by a signing.

If you can’t make it to Utah, you can order signed copies through my local bookstore, The Kings English. Or if you just want to get your paws on the book, it’s available everywhere books are sold online and in a number of Barnes and Nobles and Targets across the USA.
