News: St. Louis Comic-Con & DABWAHA

Lots of news this week!

First, I’m on a panel at the St. Louis Comic-con, Wizard World Convention, with local authors Shawntelle Madison, Angie Fox and Cole Gibsen. Our panel is titled: Swords, Steam and Sorcery: Authors tell all and it’s at 1:30 to 2:15 on Sunday, March 24. Oh, and just a hint…I’m actually in the Swords and the Steam part of that title.

Hope to see some familiar faces there!


Part Two of the good news is that My Fair Concubine was nominated for DABWAHA (Dear Author Bitchery Writing Award for Hellagood Authors). This is a no-holds-barred online vote grab. I’m in the category romance division against some huge crowd favorites with massive readerships who have never even heard of Jeannie Lin, nor realized that she writes category romance. My type of odds!

The contest officially starts on March 17th when people finalize their brackets and the voting starts on the 19th.

Here’s my 2013 finalist graphic which I am proudly flaunting. Game on, indeed!


3rd Annual Writers in the Park

I’m speaking tomorrow along with the lovely and talented Shawntelle Madison (urban fantasy author of Coveted) at the 3rd Annual Writers in the Park event. We’ll be chatting on “Finding an Agent and Publisher”. Our books will also be on sale and we’ll be available to sign.

I think we make a great team because I submitted and queried for over a year before signing with an agent whereas Shawntelle had a whirlwind courtship that lasted for a couple weeks — at least that’s how I recall it.

Many other great topics as well, including topics on fight scenes, writing short and long fiction, speculative fiction, fight scenes (I like fight scenes) — all good stuff.

It’s all FREE. Details here!
