I’m having a book signing!

I’m excited to be having my first real book signing with real, physical books next weekend.

Paul Melsness and Paul Jay, co-owners of Ottawa’s newest and best coffee chain, have graciously allowed me to invade their Stittsville, Ontario store.

Not only will I have copies of my novel, The Bones of the Earth, ready to autograph and personalize for anyone who wants to buy them, I’ll also have copies of other Independent Authors International titles:

 • Dragonfriend: Leonard the Great, Book 1, by Roger Eschbacher
If you think it was all good deeds and fancy ideals back in the days of Camelot, think again. For a time things went seriously bad: Arthur was imprisoned, Merlin had vanished, and a vile demon had taken over the throne.

Young Leonard is page to Sir Ronald, a poor but kind knight. When Sir Ronald is arrested for "bravery without a license" and dragged off to Camelot's dungeons, Leonard must do whatever it takes to free his master even if that means doing battle with dangerous monsters, trying to outwit Camelot's dark overlord, or taking a bath!

Dark Prairies/Blood Land, by RS Guthrie (this book was retitled and re-covered)
Crime's an ugly constant in the big city. L.A. Chicago. New York. But when a savage murder brutalizes a small town and neighbor turns on neighbor, a tough-as-nails cop is essential to restoring order. Blood Land is a gritty, emotional saga set in the Wyoming badlands with both greed and vengeance at its core.

When billions of dollars in natural gas rights hang in the balance and the town's top law officer's wife is slain by her own blood, a reluctant hero is forced to battle his own demons and ultimately choose between justice, revenge, and duty.

Two months after being infected with a strange retrovirus, Cassidy Jones continues to live a double life while she struggles to master her newly gained superpowers. High school has become the only normal thing left in her life--except for tall, dark, and handsome Emery Phillips, who shadows her every move, making sure she doesn't reveal her secret. Then an overnight sleepover at Catamount Mountain Zoo takes a menacing turn, putting everything at risk.  

I also plan to have paper copies of my first published fiction (since high school, anyway), Sam, the Strawb Part. As always, all the proceed from sales of that title go directly to Children at Risk, an Ottawa charity that supports families of children with autism spectrum disorders.

Now, if you live in the Ottawa or Stittsville areas, you have no excuse! I look forward to seeing you all at Gaia Java on Saturday, September 29, between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
