I haven’t written anything lately on the blog, so I thought it would be a good time to update what I’ve been working on, events coming up or past, and anything else of interest. I mentioned on my blog last time I was going to do a new blog on the fantasy genre, which I’m still going to do; it’s just my personal life has kept me from posting as much as I would like. I recently had some family issues that needed addressing, and I had to have surgery as well.
Last week, the East Syracuse Library, Erin Kelly, and I hosted another author greet and meet event. Turnout was less than desirable, but there is always good fellowship between our unique group of local authors, ranging in such genres, as action adventure, children’s, science fiction, horror, fantasy, memoirs, and others. Twelve authors attended the event. Even though no books were sold, it is always nice to interact with other writers and discuss the craft.
I also started a free book raffle for my latest book “Bargo Lynden: Adventure of A Lifetime,” which I am extending until May 14th. For Blog purposes, you can scroll to the comments section below, and say I’m going on the post I will put out for it. Then, you’re entered. It’s that simple.
I am also working on the next installment of Dimension Lapse, “Journey To Aldron,” out in the end of July. Join the continuing adventures of Angelica Avery and Batar, as they continue their mission to stop Varloo from eradicating all other races but his own. It is about half way through the first draft, but I expect it to be on schedule.
I have the usual City Market planned for downtown, and am looking into some other local shows. I’m hoping to attend the NYS Fair again in August, and to also do the Lowville County Fair again as well.
In October, there will be another signing at my home library, and by then I should have the next editions of my children’s books, “Wacky Wild Tales,” and in December, “What A Day For Sledding.”
Next time, we’ll talk about the fantasy genre; what it is and is not, the elements that go into such a story, and types of fantasy. Until then, have a good week!
