UNBROKEN Update – August 31

In about fifteen minutes I’m heading to my three-season room to open all the windows and let in this cool 80-degree late summer day. Clouds just rolled in, so if I’m lucky I’ll get some rain. If I’m even luckier I’ll get 1,000 more words added to UNBROKEN.

If you’re in the mood for a book con there’s a good one coming up here in St. Louis on September 12-14. I’ll be there signing books and nerding out with other book nerds. Join us!

Penned Con, Cover Update, Dragons

In a little over a week I’ll be signing books at Penned Con 2018 in St. Louis. This is a really down-to-earth con with two giant rooms packed with authors and readers. You can talk books with real people for two days straight! There’s also a theme dinner, auctions, games, and drawings. Tons of fun. Check out the details here, and come!


I haven’t read any Seriously Good Books lately but ohmigosh do I have a movie to recommend to you.

I Am Dragon
Amazon | IMDb

I watched it on Amazon Prime but you might find it elsewhere.

It’s Russian, and in Russian, so you’ll get English subtitles but the language is beautiful and can’t be missed. I won’t tell you anything else about it other than it’s an old-fashioned fairy tale that’s darkly romantic, with great costumes and scenery, good acting, and a great love story. Just watch it.

Did you notice THE ALIGNMENT had a little update to its cover? As much as I loved the original, I think I might love this one even more…

Thanks, Penned Con!

I’m still coming down off the thrill of Penned Con 2017. What a great collection of readers and authors! Yet again I’m surprised by the positive vibe of this con. It’s so much fun I’ve just bought my table for 2018. Even more surprising is I sold out of book 1!

Thanks to all the readers who stopped by to chat. I hope those who bought books enjoy them, and I can’t wait to see everyone again next year.
