YALLWest - Santa
Monica/Los Angeles, CA - April 11-12, 2015
Ever heard of YALLFest, the colossal book festival in South Carolina? Well, now it has a sister event on the West Coast! I'll be appearing here with a gazillion other authors. My day will be Saturday, April 11, and I'll be talking about various book things on panels and also signing. All the panels I'll be on are free, but there are some cool events that aren't that you'll need to buy tickets to. I'm told those tickets are almost sold out, so you can check out what those are here. If you don't get tickets to those, you can still come see me.
Cavalcade of Authors West - Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA - May 2, 2015
This an event put on by the libraries of Pierce County, WA and features me and some other great authors teaching writing workshops to middle and high school students. If you live in Western Washington, pass this website onto a teacher or librarian to get you registered.

This is a massive convention put on every year in various places around the country (Las Vegas next year!). Tons of authors come, and if you register for the full convention, you'll have access to a lot of parties and panels. BUT if you don't have the time or money for all that, here are some simpler ways to meet me:
--Giant Book Fair - May 16 - 11am-2pm
$5 admission will get you into the book fair where a few hundred authors will be signing. I'll be there, and you can bring your own books or purchase them there.

Last but not least, if you missed the news about my next book--Soundless--here's a peek at the amazing cover. Soundless is a standalone fantasy novel set in a Chinese myth-inspired world.

Soundless comes out in November 2015.
