So many things to catch up on!
First, you should now be able to find What is Hidden at Deseret Book! I’ll be making the rounds soon to sneak sign, so you may also be able to find signed copies around Provo and SLC as well. I’ll announce on my Twitter (link in the sidebar) whenever I find some, and then it’s first come, first serve.
Second, I have events coming up! I have a signing this weekend and will be teaching classes at Steamfest in Salt Lake, and at LDStorymakers Midwest in Kansas.
Costco Signing is Saturday, July 12 from 12pm-3pm in Sandy, UT at 11100 S Auto Mall Dr. Please come say hi!
Salt City Steamfest is Aug. 1-2. My class is Friday, Aug. 1 at 3pm: Steampunk World-Building
LDStorymakers Midwest is Sept. 20 in Overland Park, KS. I will be teaching two classes: Keeping Fairy Tales Fresh and Vivid Descriptions and Pertinent Details
Storymakers just launched the Show Your Love contest, where you can enter to win all sorts of fun stuff for registering and spreading the word so be sure to check that out. They’ve got some great presenters lined up, and I had a wonderful time attending last year.
Steamfest may seem a bit strange for me since What is Hidden is not steampunk, but I love the aesthetic and have a lot of fun dressing up. Plus I do plan on writing a steampunk novel eventually. I just have a few other things to finish first.
Which brings me to the third thing: I’m hard at work on the sequel to What is Hidden! I know lots of people have been asking about it, and yes it exists and will be out next year. I’ll come back with more details once I have them.
And lastly, I’ve been busy attending all sorts of amazing events. I volunteered at FantasyCon this past weekend in Salt Lake City (if you entered the main ballroom on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, you probably saw me). I saw Hank Green and the Perfect Strangers (and some other great sets) Monday night. I leave for San Diego Comic-Con in two weeks and am super excited to attend the Legend of Korra panel. And I’ll be volunteering at the Salt Lake Comic-Con in September as well. Busy, busy, busy!
