It’s finally here, Storm Child: Book Four of the Black Bead Chronicles! Order here on Amazon, or head to your local bookstore and ask them to order it for you (I believe in supporting your local book store, keep these valuable community resources alive!).
It’s likely your bookstore doesn’t stock my books, but if you tell them about the series, they may give it a try. Let’s all work together to support local businesses and independent authors and keep our $$$ out of the hands of big corporations. My favorite local book store is Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego. This little store hosts tons of events for local as well as bestselling authors, and their staff is a treasure-trove of book knowledge for readers. What’s your favorite local bookshop?
I launched book 4 at RegalCon in Irvine a few weeks ago, and had a blast! I love connecting with new readers, and the Con folk have been some of my most avid supporters. The cosplay was top-notch, and I was even able to connect with a few folks involved in screenplay-writing and audio book creation, so stay tuned in the coming months for news on that front.
For now, I’m focusing on two things: 1) finalizing book 5 for release this fall – Arrow’s Flight – which is now available for presale here. This will be the final Black Bead story. 2) Compiling a collection of my short stories into an anthology, also coming this fall. I told you I was first a short story writer remember? I have hundreds of them, and am thrilled to be bringing my readers a few of my favorites.
What will I do after Black Bead? Write a new novel of course! One of my favorite short stories will be developed into a novel, available in the Spring of 2018. More info on that to come….
In the meantime, enjoy these cute pics of my granddaughter dressing up as Choebawn and winning first place in the kid’s costume contest at RegalCon 🙂
