I'm not posting here much at all these days and if you've come from my website, you know it's quite out-dated as well. We're trying to get things back to current but it's not likely to happen soon.
So if you want to know what's happening with me your best bet is to find me on Facebook. I make status reports there regularly.
But for you Non-Facebookers, I'm putting some FAQs below.
What's the best way to get ahold of you and learn what's happening?
Through the email on my website or through a FB message. Posts here have been disabled for other than friends and I've not been accepting new friend requests here. Nothing personal. Just overwhelmed with toddlers, two jobs and everything else in life and I'm not sure this will be my ongoing blog platform.
I want my books signed. What's the best way to go about doing that?
The best way is to buy them through the St Helens Bookshop (link is on my website.) These lovely people are just a mile or two down the road and call me up when it's time to come sign and personalize books for people. They can get you anything of mine that's in print.
You really DO NOT want to send your books to me through the PO Box on my website. You may not get them back for a long, long, long time. I'm sorry about that -- but hey, I'm being honest. I suck at mail and I'm underwater most of the time. The PO Box is no longer active. St Helens Bookshop is your best shot. You can also get them signed by walking up to me and asking me if you run into me at a con, event, etc. I'm always happy to sign books...just stay polite, don't interrupt, etc.
I'm interested in purchasing subrights for _________.
My agent is listed on my website. She handles any subrights retained on my novels. For Psalms of Isaak, Tor has worldrights and you need to work with their subrights departement. For my short fiction, all subrights have been retained. Contact me and depending on what you're interested in, I"ll either forward you to my agent or answer your query myself.
I'd like you to write a story/article for my magazine/anthology or I'd like to interview you or have you come GOH at my local con or speak/teach at my _________.
Email me through the website. We'll see what I can do. I'm always open to short projects and interviews. I'm also available to speak on a wide range of topics, both for adults and young people. I also teach writing workshops and am available on a limited basis for some GOH opportunities at conventions. Let me know what you're interested in.
I miss your blog posts. What can I do?
I post each Saturday at www.Genreality.net on a different topic. I also post notes and status updates at Facebook pretty frequently.
I'm a writer too and I'd love to get your advice about ________ or to have you read my ________.You can sometimes find me teaching writing workshops out and about. That's a great way to hear what I have to say. You can also buy me drinks or food. Heh. Or send me an email with your question. As to reading your work...sorry, no can do. Not unless it's part of some other event I'm a part of where I've already agreed to read stuff.
I have another question not covered here. How do I get it answered?Email me, find me on Facebook, consult a Magic 8 Ball with my picture taped to it...? Naw, just find me online. I'm happy to try and respond quickly.
