Tweep Nation: Interview With Dionne & Amber

My interview with Tweep Nation is up. Many thanks to Dionne Lister and Amber Norrgard for a fun hour and driving me to drink. (It's all good!) Hope you budding writers out there hear something useful that you can apply to your art. And special thanks to Dionne for her gushing praise of my novel AWAKENINGS. It's episode 42 and can be accessed through iTunes. Enjoy.

Science Fiction Assoc. of Bergen County Gathering

Me lecturing at SFABC gathering in Bergen County B&N
On Aug. 11 of this year, I was invited as a guest to speak at a gathering of The Science Fiction Association of Bergen County. Meeting fellow local  sci-fi and fantasy fans was a thrill and I enjoyed sharing my knowledge and experiences about general writing and publishing with them. Many thanks to director Phil Departo for the invitation.

I was excited to see people's interest in Awakenings as I explained the book to them, and more excited by how many attendees had already read the book and engaged me with specifics about their favorite characters. At the time, I was hard at work at finishing book 2, "The Lost Prince," and this was one of the rare engagements I made during he summer. (FYI, Book 2 is turned in and with the editor at TOR. We're looking at a summer 2013 release.)
