Out and About October

M.L. Guida and I shared a table at the Penned conference in St. Louis last month. We gave away a Kindle. Here we are with the lucky winner (Yes, one of my readers). Congrats, Annie! Next year I’ll have my own table at Penned Conference. I just have too many books to be sharing a table.

I went to Mexico with my friend, Jackie. Her husband hates the heat, so we head south once a year for the last twenty years together. Each morning we go hiking up the foothills outside my resort and celebrate each night with amazing food. It’s the same hiking path I took when I first started writing and the women from the Worlds Apart series talked to me.

It was great meeting Cecilia at ‘Show Me Your Books’ and seeing her again at Penned Con.

Here are my conference dates for next year. I hope to see as many of you as possible.

  • Book Obsessed Babes (BOB) 3/9/2019 signing. St. Augustine, FL
  • Space Coast Book Lovers 6/27-30/2019  Cape Canaveral, FL (just west of Cocoa Beach)
    Arrive a day early and check out the Kennedy Space Center/NASA. It’s awesome
  • Penned Con 9/12-14/2019 St. Louis, MO
  • Show Me Your Books NEW DATES 9/19-21/2019 Kansas City, MO

In 2020 I’ll be returning to Weekend with the Authors and Literary Love, Savannah.

September 2018 Out and About

One of my favorite things about attending conference is meeting new friends/readers. Many I communicated with via Facebook, but it’s special meeting them face-to-face.

I met Mary at the 2013 Romcon in Colorado Springs. She came to surprise me and another Author in Phoenix in 2015. Well, my day was made when Mary was attending a wedding in Kansas City and came to the Marriott specifically to see me. She’s a dear friend and I didn’t want to let her go.

On of the advantages of being short is being front and enter when a group photo is taken. This was the first ‘Show Me Your Books’ and we had an incredible collection of authors. I was proud to be part of the group.

Out and About at Literary Love & Once Upon A Book

Attending conference is always a lot of fun. It’s wonderful meeting my readers and gaining new ones. At Literary Love: Savannah, Savannah Verte (in the big red hat) and I co-sponsored a lunch table. The readers were given cute fascinator hats Savannah picked up in New Orleans. Two of our readers bugged out before the photo was taken. Naturally, I wore my purple fascinator!

At Literary Love: Savannah, I was also on 3 panels (PNR, YA, and scifi/fantasy/UF). I enjoyed listening to panel discussions when I attended conferences as a reader and was thrilled to participate in these 3 panels. This was the PNR panel which included Laura Hawks and Milly Taiden.

Conference are also an opportunity to network with fellow authors and do some business. An industrious reader caught me and Jennifer Wentworth having a quick meeting related to the new scifi series I will be releasing in October/November/December. I posted this picture on Facebook and someone asked if I had fallen. It was actually more comfortable talking and taking notes sitting on the floor than sitting on the chair.

At Once Upon a Book in Frankenmuth, Michigan it was a lot of fun dressing up as a Greek Goddess. That’s my roommate at the convention Laura Hawks with me. Yes, I know I’m not in purple or have my fascinator on. It felt strange!

Download The Soul Mate for FREE

In 2014 I wrote the first book in the Worlds Apart series. Alexandra and Tarsea had the benefit of his parents being soul mates. I always wondered how his parents got through their first days as soul mates without any guidance. After asking that question a number of times, I had to  write a prequel novella to provide an answer.

As a member of my newsletter group, I’d like to offer the book to you FREE of charge. Grab it using the link below on AUGUST 24TH AND 25TH!

I hope you enjoy the novella and Leenea and Zane’s story.

The book is exclusively on Amazon and KindleUnlimited, as is the rest of the Worlds Apart series.

The Blurb:

His first touch electrified her!

Leenea Rickard never made a decision without fear her mind-control telepathic father would apply his influence. Even the man she ultimately married would not be her choice. Her fate had not mattered until her eyes connected with a stranger at an anti-government rally.

Zane Childers realized what Leenea was to him the moment he touched her. They must hide the true nature of their relationship or become targets of a corrupt government. Their future is jeopardized when a boy’s life is threatened and they decide to save the child.

Enjoy this prequel to the Worlds Apart series where Zane and Leenea must discover what being soul mates involves.

RT Book Lover’s Convention

I had the pleasure of attending the RT Book Lover’s Convention as a reader in Kansas City (2013) and New Orleans (2014) and as an author in Dallas (2015) and Atlanta (2017). The convention is HUGE and I was able to meet so many of the authors I have read over the years, as well as connect with readers.

Although I did not attend this year’s convention in Reno, the announcement that Katherine Falk would be retiring and RT would no longer be publishing their e-magazine made it across social media like a wildfire.

What did not spread as quickly is news the ladies that ran the convention for RT are still continuing the Book Lover’s Conventions. 2019 will be back in New Orleans May 15th-19th. I believe reading it will be at the Hyatt Regency. One of my favorite authors, Christine Feehan (her ‘Dark Gold’ was the first PNR book I read and was hooked) is one of the authors they are advertising will be there.

Here is the link to sign-up for their newsletter. I have no information about when registration for next year will open. One of my local RWA (Romance Writers of America) friends and I have already decided to road trip to New Orleans and join in on the fun.

What Is Going On With Kindle Worlds? 

A Touch Of Harmony by Evelyn Lederman KW

On May 16th, Amazon announced the closing of Kindle Worlds. They immediately pulled Kindle World novellas/books from Kindle Unlimited (KU) and will pull the Kindle versions on or around July 16th.

So what does that mean to you as a reader? Well, if you are a KU reader, you will no longer be able to borrow these books with your monthly membership. For those of you who buy the Kindle version you have until July 16th to purchase the books under the current Kindle World licensing.

What about after July 16th? Kindle World authors/owner are trying to figure that out. As a Kindle World author I have the ability to follow the author/owner in what they have planned OR rewrite and republish the books, pulling out aspects of the author/owner world. Amazon has assigned us back our publishing rights.

It is premature for me to communicate what I plan to do, since the author/owners are still working on their plans. As soon as I know those plans, I will let you all know. However, the closing of Kindle Worlds does give the author/owner and authors the ability to go international and provide a broader distribution of the works.

I have personally met with S.E. Smith and am in contact with Eliza Gayle as well. They were given a days notice before Amazon contacted all the writer contributors of Kindle World. So this is all very new information.
