It’s Chinese New Year in Taiwan, after getting stuffed on steamed fish, broiled pork and ginger chicken soup, we handed each other red envelopes stuffed with cash, then went to the temple to get blessed.
I wanted to share the magic, so I set up some giveaways for Chinese New Year:
PS. These are free for a limited time only – but after that they’re all in Kindle Unlimited; look for the boxsets of the completed series to get the best deal!
“I recently read the Falling Kingdom Series and Vampire Deception and was so overwhelmed by a feeling of “where has this been all my life?!” that I felt I had to say something. Hopefully encouraging and nice without sounding patronising. It’s genuinely fun young adult urban fantasy. Basically I love what you and your talented co-authors have created and wanted to thank you all for bringing some light into a life… even if it means spending some of it staring longingly at The Changeling Rebellion on my Kindle because I really need to read it but I’m scared of forgetting everything before book 3 drops (alas for the sieve-brained; Urban Epics stories are incredibly binge-worthy.) You sir, and your Urban Epics comrades, are awesome.”
We LOVE hearing feedback from you! Please keep it up. 🙂

I just got back from a weekend with my favorite writing buddies – nearly 50 young adult authors. I took lots of pictures, and even made a video of them introducing their books. The main thing I got out of it, was how much these books mean to readers; even if they’re scifi or fantasy, they still make readers feel accepted or not alone. PennedCon was set up as a charity fundraiser for autism, by YA author Amy Miles.
I attended as an author, and even though I didn’t bring books to sign or a full display set up, I still met a few readers who knew me (and were waiting on more books!) I can’t tell you how much that means to me.
I also got to speak on a self-publishing panel, moderated by Mark Coker of Smashwords, with several NYT bestselling authors, including Amy Bartol (one of my fav writers).
More importantly, I got to connect and hang out with a bunch of YA authors as a peer, and see how they interact with fans
I bought a lot of SIGNED books, and I’m putting them all in a giveaway before we leave for Thailand this week… here’s a video of some of the YA authors introducing their books. Scroll down to enter!
I don’t update this blog often enough, so here’s the plan if you’re curious.
still wrestling with the last few chapters of Selfie, so I can announce it
want to finish Scarlet Thread 3, maybe 4
want to finish Taste 2 and Shearwater 2
Also have an epic fantasy I’m excited about
Not sure I’ll get all that done this year, but that’s what I’m working on, and I plan to be faster and more consistent with releases, and also focusing on finishing up series and being less sporadic with new ideas.
