New Cover Art! A Paperback! A Book Tour! OH MY!

In case you've been wondering what I've been up to when I've been horridly neglecting you, here's some new and exciting news! :)

Legacy of the Empress has a Fancy Pants professional cover, and is coming out in paperback form NEXT WEEK!  That's right, ladies and gents. I'm going paper, and I'm going there hard.  The book will be a nice sized trade paperback, and will be priced at $10.99.  Woot!

Along with that awesome and most excellent news, I'm excited to say that I'm going on a booktour around the Portland Metro Area in October with some other really cool, local YA Authors.  Since Legacy straddles the line between YA and epic fantasy, they were nice enough to have me.

Here's where you can find me if you live in the area:

  • Cover to Cover Bookstore on October 1st, from 5 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
  • West Linn Public Library on October 7th, from 6:30 p.m. - 8:15 p.m.
  • Beaverton City Library on October 20th, from 4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
  • A Children's Place Bookstore on October 22nd at 1 p.m. - whenever they kick us out!
So, all of you Pacific Northwest Internet Friends, come say "hi!" :)  I'll be the one getting all nervous and sweaty before reading a passage from my book.

I'm so excited!  I hope I get to meet some of you face to face. How cool would that be?

Also, please tweet, facebook, or blog about these events, or even the paperback. It would be a huge help.  Thanks for all your support, guys!

Congrats! I was asked to do a book signing at a library, but I was way too shy. Good luck. :)

Very cool, if I can make it to one of those, I will, but my work schedule sucks as I work till 10pm M-F. I might make the Children's place bookstore to say hi.
