What’s Doing this Fall
First of all, The Elements of Untethered Realms anthology series is complete and now in one beautiful boxed set with forty tales from fourteen authors. I have four stories in it: The Day of the Flying Dogs (Earths); A Strange Penitence (Air); Rollerskate Boys (Fire); and Maizy of Bellagio (Water).
You can 1-click this set for only $2.99 at these sites:
The separate anthologies are also still available: Twisted Earths, Mayhem in the Air, Ghosts of Fire and Spirits in the Water. See them here.
On other fronts, I recently attended Romance Author Mastermind, where I learned TONS about branding, marketing and promo. I took a step back last year to simply write, and now I am going to take all I’ve been learning to recover, rebrand, and basically step up my game! Lookout people! For starters, I am in the process of recovering the Fireseed series. Stay tuned.
More news: On Friday, November 16 come see me at NCTE in Houston!
I am attending NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English), where I am leading a roundtable on Teaching Climate Change in High School within the broader event called High School Matters. My Fireseed series deals with these pressing issues, such as rising ocean temps, climate refugees, eco terrorism, and future farming. For more details about the event head to my events page.
Summer Book Fest Appearance!
Finally, warm weather and flowers!
I am settled into my writing den, working hard on the newest witch novel, Witch of the Wild Beasts. It is set in Philadelphia in 1854, and brimming with the type of details you don’t hear about when you speak of old Philadelphia. LOL. Crime, gritty prison life, gangs running rampant and lingering superstition about witchery. Yes, even in the sophisticated, civil society of Ben Franklin’s “City of Brotherly Love” there was seriously shady business going on! If you want to find me, head over to Facebook, Instagram, or just send me an email.

Chapter Con UK’s inaugural event was a big success and the founder, Katie M John will run it again in 2019! I’ll be there. How about you? I was honored to be asked to give this year’s keynote speech.
NCWR’s Wine and Sign author signing on the Delancey Rooftop Garden in NYC was also super-fun. Here’s a photo of me with the organizer, Janet Wallace. Oh, and I loved meeting my new readers from the Bronx, Brooklyn, and New Jersey. Thanks to all who helped make this a stellar event.
See me in Saint Louis in November and in Frankenmuth, MI in August! Event details here.
