Non-Traditional Publishing Panel
This November, I'll be moderating a panel on non-traditional publishing with some fellow Tacoma authors.The panel is part of Art at Work month and we'll talk about all the different ways authors can get their work out into the world. I'm really looking forward to this and I'll be sure to publish the date and time here.

The Marinara Murders

I should have a cover to show off next month. I'm getting very excited about this book's November launch.

The Lead Cloak

I haven't had too much time to keep writing this one, with my jobs, and the election, and so forth. But I am still very happy with it and the slow but steady progress I'm making.

As mentioned before, this is a science fiction read. It's set about 90 years in the future. There is a device that can show you anything that has happened in the past or is happening right now. Who stole the apple from the apple cart? Where was my husband last night? Was Jesus real? What was it like to be in the middle of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake? Is my employee slacking off at work?

It is sophisticated enough, it can also interpret thoughts, both past and present. What is the President thinking right now? What lead Einstein to come up with e=mc2? Is my wife in love with someone else?

The book is set well after this device has been invented and is in regular use. I won't go into the plot too much yet, but that's the world of the book. Everyone can know pretty much anything they want to know.

Sales and Publishing

So, August was nice because all my book sales came from unknown sources. This is pretty exciting for an author. Either it means that previous reviews are finally getting noticed or that the book is coming up more and more often in the Amazon system.

Even more exciting, I'm 5 days into September and I've sold almost as many books as I sold in August.

We'll see if that can keep up!
