Spring has been snowy here. While it hasn’t stuck, it snowed here all weekend which was good for my writing.
Milk Run is coming together. The origin story – “Exile” – which has done very well in the Starbound anthology – will be coming home in May and I’ll put it at the beginning of Milk Run as the opening chapters. I think part of my problem all along as been it should have been there and I’ve been flailing trying to get it together. The anthology is free for a few days so if you missed it, now’s the time to grab a copy.
In April, I was honored to participate in a panel discussion on indie authors and libraries at the Public Library Association’s annual convention in Denver. It was rather an eye opener for me and I hope I was able to de-bunk some of the myths about self-published books.
I was also honored to be one of three finalists for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Independent Writer of the Year. This is the first time RMFW has offered the award – a companion award to their Writer of the Year award – for the independently published authors in the organization. The membership will vote over the summer and the winner will be announced at the Colorado Gold conference in September (I think). There will be a reception at the Tattered Cover in Denver in August for all the WOTY and IWOTY finalists.
10th – Podium will be releasing their audiobook of Quarter Share. It’s already up for pre-orer.
14th – I’ll be doing a master class on SF/F for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers in Golden.
Before the end of the month I have to get the paperback editions of South Coast and In Ashes Born out. It would be great if I could get this first Smuggler’s Tale out, too.
Should be a busy month.
