Where Am I?

I’m in Madison, Indiana, that’s where! That Book Place is holding its 3rd Annual Author’s Fair and Book Sale, and I’m one of the authors who’ll be there. We’ll have a few panels on Friday evening after a day-long book sale, and another sale with over 60 authors signing their books on Saturday.

Here is the book I’ll be signing, just so you know:

The Fall of Onagros
Book 1 of SAGE

Frank Hall, owner of That Book Place, is also owner of Hydra Publications, the publisher of the SAGE series. I recently signed a contract with Hydra to republish my wiseass science fiction novel SIDESHOW IN THE CENTER RING. So yay for me!

Madison, Indiana is awesomely awesome! Or so I’ve been told. I’ve only been there on business, so I’ve never seen any of it except That Book Place! Of course, a bookstore is all I really care about, BUT I’m told there are some must-see yarn shops, now that I’m knitting.

Who told me? Why, Jessica Nunemaker of little Indiana, of course! She’s the go-to gal for anything small-town Indiana. If she hasn’t covered it, it’s because there’s only one of her, and she can only do so much. I’m hoping I can lure her down thisaway some time.

Meanwhile, I’ll have a Caturday post tomorrow and a SampleSunday excerpt on Sunday. If you’re in Madison today or tomorrow, come to That Book Place for some astounding bargains on used books, and rub elbows with Real Live Writers.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Use blogs or Google maps or something to find a small town. See how much of it you can discover on the web. Think of five possible plots based on what you find.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Pray have a lovely time. We had a tournament in Madison once, B.T. (before the tornado). It was absolutely lovely.
