Book Tour Going Strong!

I had a great time speaking for the third year in a row at the annual San Francisco Writer’s Conference held at the Mark Hopkin’s Hotel! For the first time, I got to hold up my first published book as a crowd of a few hundred cheered. Definitely a rad experience!

This weekend I’m off to San Luis Obispo, where I’m speaking to students at my old alma mater, Cal Poly. I’ll be chatting with English-majors and hanging out with my former professors (all of whom insist I call them by their first names now). How trippy, cool is that?

Then the following weekend I’ll be in Sacramento speaking at the annual Authors On the Move fundraiser. I’ll be chilling with other traditionally published authors like Cara Black and Hector Tobar. I definitely will need to get my suit out of the closet for this one.

Whew, I guess it’s good to be busy:)

Speaking at SFWC Next Week!

Next week I’ll be speaking at the annual San Francisco Writer’s Conference at the Mark Hopkin’s Hotel! This will be my third year in a row speaking at the conference I first went to as an attendee several years ago. The best part is that this time I’ll get to hold up my first published novel for all to see!

I guess it feels a little bit like graduating high school or something for me. I remember when I first attended the SFWC full of ideas and early writings. I learned the ins and outs of seeking publication via agents and publishers. Years later I finally made that dream a reality and now I get to share that same hope with new attendees.

I also plan to launch my cover reveal for my sequel early next month. But I’ll have a forthcoming viewing posted on my newsletter for anyone who wants an early sneak peek!
