Quick Update

You probably noticed that things slowed down in the last few days.  I didn't give an update about my writing/editing and I haven't been active on Facebook/Twitter or on this site.  I'm not feeling well and so I'm not very productive.  Don't know if it's allergies or a head cold but it's keeping me from accomplishing the many things I should be doing.  Hopefully I'll be able to shake it soon and I'll be back to work.  I promise that I'll have some productive updates as soon as I feel better.

North Carolina, Get Ready For Revolution!!!

The first event planned for the Hippocampus Book Tour is in Lumberton, North Carolina.  On February 25, 2012, I'm heading to Book 'Em North Carolina.  Book 'Em is an organization that raises money to increase literacy rates in the community.  Further details are being arranged (including talks/panel discussions I will participate in) so check back often. 

I can tell you for sure that Hippocampus will be on sale (4 Months Early!!!).  That's right, if you meet me at Book 'Em North Carolina, you can buy and read the book 4 months early and support a great charity at the same time!    So mark your calendars for 2/25/12 and join the Revolution at Book 'Em North Carolina. Remember to bring your eReaders (Kindles, Nooks, iPads, iPods, etc).

Here are my books that will be on sale at Book 'EM North Carolina:
Hippocampus (eBook Formats) $2.99---100% of the proceeds go to charity
The Man in the Moon (Trade Paperback) $6.99---50% of the proceeds go to charity
Watched (Trade Paperback) $6.99---50% of the proceeds go to charity
Time Warriors: Induction (Trade Paperback) $6.99--50% of proceeds go to charity

**Remember that Hippocampus is available in eBook formats only but we designed a way to sell the eBook at Book 'Em.  And that means more book events are possible with the eBooks as well!!  Stay tuned!!!**

I stumbled across an interview I did in November 2008 and it brought back memories so I wanted to share. The interview was on The Odd Mind and runs a little over an hour. At the time, I was promoting Watched which was the second Lindsey Scott Thrillstery but I discussed the other series as well (minus The Atlantis Revolution because I didn't have that idea at the time). I found it interesting listening to my thoughts from back then and seeing how they changed to now.
