For those of you in the Portland area, I’ll be signing books at Powell’s at Cedar Crossing at 3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. Beaverton, OR 97005 with a bunch of other authors on Sunday afternoon 11/9/14 beginning at 4:00 PM.
Here’s a full list of the authors attending:

I (mistakenly) turned the keyboard over to Von for my Halloween post on Paranormal Haven. You have got to see the costumes he chose for Dante, Heather, Annie, Silver, Lucien–and himself. *slaps forehead* We’re also doing a giveaway that runs for the next 21 days! 3 signed copies of OMW and one more winner gets their choice from any of my titles.
Here’s a preview:
All righty then, Halloween or Endless Night, as it’s called here in N’awlins runs pretty much all October From bead-tossing parades (Halloween beads, y’all), to costume parties (hell, that’s pretty much year-round in the Quarter), to haunted house events so intense that kids aren’t allowed in, to drunken bacchanalias (hell, that’s also pretty much year-round), to spooky music festivals, zombie outbreaks, hoodoo, Voodoo, you’ll find it all here. And in darker corners, you might find even more than you wanted. I hear tell that there’s vampires around here. **grins**
So this year, I nagged asked the gang to let me choose the costumes for everyone. It didn’t take me long to reason with Dante. Funny how quickly a persons sees the validity of your ideas when you’re sitting on ’em. Without further ado (and what IS ado, anyway? Is it something I want?), here’s my choices for everyone.
We’re gonna have one helluva endless night! **winks** Read the rest and see the costumes at Paranormal Haven.
There are a lot more shows on my DVR than ten, but I shared the top ones on All Things Urban Fantasy. I’m also giving away 3 signed copies of OMW and two signed copies of any of my titles, winner’s choice. Contest ends 10/17/13. Here’s a preview:
I enjoy watching good TV, love checking out new shows, and with DVR technology, it’s sooooo easy to record, well, everything. The other day, I was looking at my recorded programming and realized I would never have the time to watch each show, not if I planned to write on a regular basis and not if I hoped to avoid becoming a true couch potato. LOL.
It also dawned on me that there were shows that I watched immediately, eager to see what happens next and to who, and that there were shows I put off until I had nothing else to watch. No real excitement there, just a sense of duty. “Well, I’ve come this far, might as well finish the season.” What the . . . ? Why am I watching shows that don’t excite me? Why am I watching shows that I don’t look forward to?
A damned good question. Time is too short. Too valuable. So I started ruthlessly winnowing timers. Revolution-gone. Vampire Diaries-gone (to be fair, I used to enjoy this one, but it faded during the last season). Cold Justice-gone (we hardly knew ye). Super Fun Night-gone (one episode). Defiance-gone (although it had good moments, just not good enough). And so many more. I dropped from 79 timers to 34.
Read the rest and enter the giveaway at ALL THINGS URBAN FANTASY.
The signing at Thurston Book Exchange has been changed from 9/28 to 10/5 (the day after my birthday!) because of a delay in receiving their shipment of my books. My apologies for any inconvenience this has caused. I truly hope to see all of you in the Springfield-Eugene area there. (I’ll bring treats!)
I will be doing a reading/signing event at Powell’s at Cedar Crossing 9/25 (tonight!) at 7PM. Please ignore the notice on the sidebar that says 7:30 PM. That’s just me, getting the time wrong. LOL. Hope to see you there!
