Weekly Update – July 9, 2019

As regular blog readers might know, I am one of the featured authors at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire’s Local Authors Series for 2019.

One of, but certainly not the only one, and faire co-producer Eric Tetreault has shared with me the mostly full roster of this year’s authors — mostly, because there is one slot yet to be filled.

Here’s the lineup:

WRITING PROJECTS

The Adventures of Strongarm & Lightfoot – Sworded Affairs: First draft in progress. I have Sunday all to myself so I am hoping to get a good chunk of the climax out of the way.

Well-Behaved W0men – Transition: Audiobook is in the recording process with my new narrator.

Well-Behaved Women – Endtimes: Fifth draft is finished and with my editor, now aiming for a late August/early September release.

Action Figures – Issue Nine: Hell Hath No Fury: First draft in progress.

Action Figures – Issue One: Secret Origins (audiobook): Review completed, final editing in progress.

APPEARANCES & EVENTS

  • The Connecticut Renaissance Faire – Saturday, October 5, Lebanon County Fairgrounds, Lebanon, CT: I’ll be back again to sell and sign books as part of CTRF’s Local Authors Series.

The New England Speculative Writers group has a new preview book for newsletter subscribers. Pick it up and read the opening chapters to Well-Behaved Women – Awakening and other stories.

October Book Fair(e)

CTRF AuthorsBeware! Multiple cheap plugs ahead!

Today is the last day to grab advance tickets for the Connecticut Renaissance Faire, which begins on October 3 and runs for four weekends at the North Haven Fairgrounds in (duh) North Haven (double duh), Connecticut. I bring this up for several reasons, many of which are shamelessly self-serving.

For starters, it’s a fun show and a great day out for the whole family. Many, many of my friends will be there performing in one capacity or another, my wife will be vending her awesome wares, and seven different authors — including me — will be there to sell and sign copies of their books. Here’s the complete schedule for your planning pleasure:

  • Saturday, October 3: Erin Thorne (Losers and Their Friends; Deals Diabolical)
  • Sunday, October 4: Michael Bailey (self-explanatory, I think)
  • Saturday, October 10: R.A. Salvatore (the Drizzt Do’Urden novels)
  • Sunday, October 11: E.A. Rappaport (the Legends of the Four Races series)
  • Monday, October 12: J.M. Aucoin (Honor Among Thieves; the Jake Hawking series)
  • Saturday, October 17: A.L. Davroe (the Tricksters series)
  • Saturday, October 24: Deborah Ann Davis (the Love of Fairs series)
