Indie Book sale
Wed, Dec. 14, 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm at Half Price Books on North Lamar
A group of local indie authors will be selling our books directly to you in a store-within-the-store at HPB. We can offer nifty discounts when we sell direct. And signed books make GREAT gifts!! Not to mention the wonderful world of goodies inside the regular store.
We’ll be easy to find. We’ll be the ones at the front with the fool in the Francis Bacon outfit!
Indie Author Day
Sat., Oct. 8, 4:00 p.m. I’m giving my presentation on Business Plans for Creative People at BiblioTech West, 2003 S. Zarzamora, Bldg 10 San Antonio, TX 78207, as part of the program in San Antonio. I’ll be attending but not speaking at the event in Austin in the morning that day. That’s at the Will Hampton Branch of the Austin Public Library at Oak Hill (5125 Convict Hill Rd.) from 10:00 to 12:00. The program continues there in the afternoon, but I’ll be driving south after lunch. Come on out!
2-4 September in the Andrew Wiles Building, Woodstock Road, Oxford OX2 6GG.
Mystery Writers Key West Fest
Looking for a great getaway? Cruise on down to Key West for a weekend of mystery books, writers, and other criminally good times. I’m on a panel about building suspense. I’m in suspense about that one myself…
June 10-12, DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Grand Key
Reading at Malvern Books
I’ll be reading from one of my books Feb. 20th from 3-5pm at Malvern Books at 29th and Guadalupe. Best place to park is probably in UT’s garage at 24th and San Jacinto. Or ride a bus!
The other authors who will be reading are Sarah Atlas (erotica) and Adrian Hale (contemporary romance/erotica.) I’m not sure how Francis Bacon finds himself in this company; probably because the other indie authors in the pool write science fiction.
Author Business Plan Workshop
Sunday, Feb. 21, 5:00 – 7:00 pm, Half Price Books on North Lamar.
I’ll be sharing what I’ve learned about making a business plan to help me set goals and stay on track. Come join us! This is a great group.

Book signing at Half Price Books
Sunday, Jan 23, from 1:00 – 3:00.
I’ll be signing copies of the three Francis Bacon mysteries, wearing my Francis Bacon outfit. Here’s hoping it’s not cold that day, because I’ll probably be right by the front door. Come and mock me at Austin’s favorite bookstore!
NaNoWriMo Brainstorming Workshop
Thursday, Nov. 5, from 6:30-8:30
Join me and 3 other awesome Austin Indies: Kate Baray (urban fantasy), Katie Graykowski (contemporary romance), and Steve Statham (science fiction). We’ll talk about where we get our ideas and where you might find more of your own. Imagination is like a muscle; the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets.
