|My favorite place to escape to after a long writing session.|
Life has been pretty good lately. I just finished a two week long blog tour organized by Xpresso Book Tours. It was a great experience and if you are looking to have a book tour yourself, or if you want to be a tour host, I recommend you give them a try.
So Awakened has been available for over a month now and I have been working on book two, Transcended. If everything goes according to schedule, it will be available April 2014.
April you say? Yes, I know, it is a long time away. But life is busy and I'm a slow writer.
Myself, Carolyn Rose and Karen Gilb, will be hosting a release party this Saturday, the 29th, at Cover To Cover Books. If you are in the Portland/Vancouver area, I'd love to have you stop by. We will be reading from our most current works and shoving sugary treats down your throat. In other words, there will be snacks and wine involved!
Vancouver Authors Celebrate New Releases
Mystery writer Carolyn J. Rose (No Substitute for Money), and fantasy writers T.K. Gilb (Between Flame and Shadow), and Kriston Johnson (Awakened) will read from their latest works on Saturday, June 29th, 3:00-5:30 PM, at Cover to Cover Books, 6300 NE St. James Road, Suite 104B, Vancouver. 360-993-7777, email@example.com
Rose is the author of several novels, including Hemlock Lake, Through a Yellow Wood, An Uncertain Refuge, Sea of Regret, A Place of Forgetting, and No Substitute for Murder, a self-published cozy which has reached nearly 30,000 readers. The just-released sequel, No Substitute for Money, is also set in fictional Reckless River, Washington and features substitute teacher and amateur sleuth Barbara Reed.
Gilb is an avid reader, writer, and blogger with a passion for the Northwest. In recent years, she has traveled from British Columbia south to the Oregon Caves and from the Bitterroot Mountains west to the Pacific. Check out her travels on http://www.wildaboutthenw.com/
Between Flame and Shadow is a tale of sorcery, betrayal, honor, and the quest to find and claim an ancient scroll of power and save a queen.
Johnson lives with her husband, teenage son, and miniature Australian Shepherd near a fringe of an old growth forest that she insists is the home of Jason Voorhees. Her husband thinks that’s a ridiculous assumption because everyone knows it’s really Bigfoot. Awakened is the story of seventeen-year-old Jade Rosenberg whose inherited power is kindled by the incantation in an ancient book. Thrust into an enchanted realm, she faces a terrifying choice—assassinate the sworn enemy of her people or sacrifice her soul.
