I’ve spent the past few days being called all kinds of names for attending a Women’s March this weekend (in Memphis), so forgive me, if this post sounds a little tired. I do not regret going to the march in the slightest, and I feel that it’s a call to action to help those who feel discriminated against, marginalized and disenfranchised.
All I got from the march itself, though, was love, a LOT of love. I felt a unity with fellow Americans unlike anything I’ve ever felt before and for the first time, I felt patriotic and extremely proud of my country. As we chanted to the world, “this is what democracy looks like.”
To quote Forrest Gump, that’s all I have to say about that.
So on to more writing news: I will be a guest at this weekend’s Southern Fried Pop Culture and Comic Con in Jackson, TN. I will have books available for purchase and will, obviously, happily sign any books bought (including those bought before the con). I also have some cute Doctor Who steampunk clutch purses I made available in limited quantities because I’m crafty like that.
After that, I’m looking forward to being a guest once more at ConGT, which is in March in Clarksville, TN. I will also have books available there, too, and will sign pretty much anything you put in front of me.
It’s going to be another fun year of cons, friends and writing and, hopefully, that means the release of Madame Vampire, something I’m working away at right now. I feel the novel is coming along nicely, and I’ve already spoken to an amazing artist about doing a killer cover for it, so look for that by the end of the year.
