The year in which I do my best to fill your shelves, dear readers!

A Play of Shadow, Book 2 of Night's Edge, this November!!!

Events galore, signings in astonishing number. Yup. The hard part of the year will be avoiding me. (You don't want to do that, do you?)




CAN-CON 2014, Oct 3-5th, Ottawa, ON

Absolutely wonderful convention. Terrific organization and the people? Brilliant, from concom to attendees to workshop folks to panelists. My brain is reeling!!
That would have been enough, but Saturday, in the consuite, was where I received the news about A Turn of Light winning the Aurora. The HUGGING!!!

I shall treasure that night, always. And plan to be back next year!!!
