World Fantasy, Moonbeam Awards, Birthday Book Giveaway

This past weekend, I attended and volunteered for the World Fantasy Convention, which was practically in my backyard. In addition to catching up with and meeting various writer friends, I enjoyed the panels and the readings. Congratulations to the WFA winners, especially Ellen Datlow (Lifetime Achievement) and Sofia Samatar (Best Novel).

While I was at World Fantasy, my YA novel BEREFT received the Bronze Moonbeam Award (in the Mature Issues category). Unfortunately, I could not be at the ceremony. Thanks to the Moonbeam Award Committee and to the fellow winners, which include fellow Tiny Satchel Press author Lisa R. Nelson.  More about the awards is here).

Finally, today is the last day to enter my GoodReads Book Giveaway for SKIN DEEP MAGIC. The contest ends tomorrow–my birthday! The winners will receive an autographed copy of the book in the mail.

The Giovanni’s Room reading on April 6th was wonderful. In addition to reading, I met the Tiny Satchel Press crew–Editor-In-Chief Victoria A. Brownworth, art director Maddy Gold, managing editor Judith Redding and cover designer Christopher Bauer. I read with Lisa R. Nelson, whose book Drifting also out with TSP.  Here is a picture of me with Nelson and Bauer.
