My Upcoming Author Events
November is gearing up to be a whirlwind month filled with insightful discussions, book signings, and networking with fellow members of sci-fi fandom. I’ve filled my calendar with events that promise to bring the gritty, mechanical heart of the wild west, as envisioned in my series The Adventures of Bodacious Creed, to life for new readers. Let’s look at my upcoming author events!
Engaging Minds at Anaheim Central Library: Nov 5
My month kicks off at the Anaheim Central Library on Sunday, November 5th, 2023. The day begins at 11:00 a.m. (though authors will be there earlier, getting set up!). Mystery Ink Bookseller will be selling our novels, including three in my trilogy: Bodacious Creed: a Steampunk Zombie Western, Bodacious Creed and the Jade Lake, and Bodacious Creed and the San Francisco Syndicate.
I will be a panelist, sharing insights from my journey through the new technologies, and the occasional zombies, of my weird western world, the Creedverse. Post-panel, a 30-minute autograph session awaits, providing a chance for enthusiasts to have their copies of The Adventures of Bodacious Creed series signed, whether they bring in their own copies, or purchase them from Mystery Ink Bookseller. I’m also expecting Bodacious Creed stickers in the mail, so you can get one of those along with my autograph!
The Anaheim Central Library is located at 500 W. Broadway Ave, Anaheim, CA 92805. It’s well-equipped to accommodate the attendees, though I hear parking fills up fast! An announcement system will keep the buzz alive, heralding the commencement of panels, readings, and workshops throughout the day.
LosCon 48 Extravaganza: Nov 25 – Nov 27
Thanksgiving weekend extends the literary revelry as I venture to Los Angeles for LosCon 48, from November 25 to November 27, at the Marriott Los Angeles Airport Hotel. This convention is a hallmark event with a tradition of celebrating speculative fiction.
LosCon 48 boasts a stellar lineup of guests, with Tanya Huff as the Writer Guest of Honor, Dave Kellett as the Artist Guest of Honor, and Alexander James Adams tuning the chords as the Music Guest of Honor. The aura of creativity is bound to resonate well with the themes of my books.
I hope for my booth to be hub of engaging discussions, book signings, and a display of the creative prowess that fuels the fantastical realms in my series. I’m also hoping to have my new Adventures of Bodacious Creed: Trilogy Edition playing card decks for sale. This is an opportunity for fans and newcomers alike to delve deeper into my series.
Embracing The Journey Ahead
November unfolds as a chapter laden with anticipation and promise. The engagement at Anaheim Central Library and LosCon 48 isn’t merely about celebrating the printed word, but a testament to the indomitable spirit of creativity and the camaraderie that binds the community of speculative fiction. Through these events, I look forward to contributing to the rich tapestry of imaginative storytelling, heralding an adventurous winter for all involved.
Mark your calendars and join me at my upcoming author events, immersing in the unique blend of steampunk, western, and zombie elements that hallmark my narrative. November is not just a prelude to winter, but a gateway to riveting adventures with Bodacious Creed at the helm.
PS: French Translations Coming Soon!
I’ve decided it’s time to translate The Aventures of Bodacious Creed into French! I do speak French, so I’ll be using translation software for the initial phase, then reading each book thoroughly and making corrections. It will probably take a few months, but expect the French version of my trilogy out soon, along with new covers!
