Alrighty then fellow blargh readers (I call this blog a blargh…because, well, why not?), guess what? Yep, finally have my phone back after it bricking at DragonCon 2017 and can post photos, updates, videos and more!
So, what happened? Well, besides having amazing panels with the likes of Patricia Briggs, Cherie Priest, David B. Coe, Myke Cole, and so many others, lots happened.
A handful of successful and best-selling authors plucked up copies of Dangerous Ways from me and had them signed. *Photos below* I had my name shouted out among and by heroes of mine at the awards and after. I heard from the mouths of NYT best-selling authors and the mouths of their friends that they like my writing.
Larry Correia publicly shouted out my work at the Bard’s Tower booth, telling people to check it/me out, and that my stuff was, “–badass!”
His words. Words that are sticking with me forever. 😉
Can you blame me?
I signed autographs. I had my first ever public reading…and killed it. First time readers, new to my world, attended and one pair walked away with a free and signed copy of Dangerous Ways in trade paperback format. 🙂 That was awesome.
It was the stuff of dreams in many regards. So, ready for the pics? Of course you are!

I’ll also be at the Dragon Awards ceremony on Sunday as it is my second year in a row being nominated under the Best Fantasy (Paranormal) category. It’s an endlessly amazing honor, and I cannot wait to be there in person to watch it all and take part. Thank you to everyone for making it happen. I hope to see as many of you as possible there.
Oi-yoi, it’s that time again. Yep. The, what is up with me now, post. Sorry, but not really. Why? Because good things are just around the bend. And, yeah, I want to share them with you. Can you blame me? Have you talked to yourselves lately?
That’s right, I’m part of a wonderful storybundle (kind of like humble bundle but for books only) in where we have one mighty impressive lineup of paranormal thrillers! So, how’s it work? Simple. You go to the site, pay what you want, and collect some reads. The more you pay, the more you unlock. All the money goes to helping out us authors and the storybundle program and…charity!
Please share it around if you already have these titles or just feel like being of great help. Every share, eyes on this, and purchase really does help. Remember, there’s up to sixteen novels for grabs. If you’re an urban fantasy/supernatural fan, how can you pass this up?
Oh, me? Well, thanks ever-so-much for asking. I’m capital. See, some of you have been nudging me for quite the while to get up and start this Patreon thing. Others have wondered where I’ve been. I really haven’t been posting as much. Oops. My bad.
But I’m back. And, here it is. My patreon where you can get on up and get sneaky first hand/early access to all my imaginary gobbledy brain nuggets. If you want ’em, that is.
^^How do you support me so you can see some more wordings? Well, if you can’t commit financially, which is so totally okay, maybe do a share and pimp the link around.
As always, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and investment in my career, whether it’s with money, or just your love of my work and word of mouth sharing. All of it makes a difference. You have an amazing effect on my career and life. So, thank you.
