Spread the word! RWA’s “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing event will be held Saturday, July 29, from 3 to 5 p.m. (ET) at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort.
This mass book-signing event raises tens of thousands of dollars each year for literacy organizations, and we want to keep the generosity going.
I will be presenting an award at the Nebula Award Ceremony at the SFWA Nebula Conference in Pittsburgh, Saturday May 20.
In case you haven’t heard, the retailer All-Romance eBooks is precipitously going out of business, leaving publishers, authors and readers out of pocket. Writer Beware did a terrific summary here. Like many other publishers, I am offering to make good any self-published books of mine you may have bought from ARe and were unable to download before they folded. Simply contact me here through the website and send me the receipt for the book. I’ll replace the copy.
Fortunately I am not out a great deal of money on this, but I feel for all those affected by ARe’s duplicitous business practices.
I’ve been interviewed by Ilana Teitelbaum from The Huffington Post.

Goodreads says I’ve written 191 reviews since joining Goodreads on June 29th, 2010. Apparently this puts me in the Top 1% of reviewers. Surprising! But kind of cool.
