In addition to, or sometimes in place of, the usual reviews and Friday Flash Fiction for the next two months, look out for these events:
- Feb. 10: Cover Reveal for Death By Ice Cream
- Feb. 26: Blurb Reveal for Death By Ice Cream
- March 24 (give or take a little): Death By Ice Cream is released; blog-hop to celebrate the release. We'll be adding to the fun with a Giveaway, maybe holding a party on the Internet. Come, and bring chocolate!
- April: The A to Z Challenge. I've picked my theme: wilderness, with a side of ice cream (guess why!), and plan to include book reviews, wilderness-themed flash fiction, and at least one day per week of pretty picture from the wilds of the Western US. I'm still looking for kids' and adult books that fit the wilderness theme and the letters of the alphabet, but you can bet there will be more hiker narratives and some of the great adventure stories by Gary Paulsen.
And all the while I'm working on my next projects: major revisions for Halitor the Hero, my own middle grade fantasy (with tongue mostly in cheek), and the beginning bits of the third Ninja Librarian collection, in which we deal with the problem of Peggy, not to mention getting back to beating my NaNo novel, the sequel to Death By Ice Cream into sometime more like a book, called (at least for now), Death By Trombone.
So watch this space!
I'd like to finish with a hint at the new cover, or even some cute kittens, but I can't and won't. Instead, I'll just use my favorite trademark, the post-hike ice cream frenzy:
