News: Book launch party, print books, and giveaway!

I can’t even believe it’s December right now. I know I say that every December, and I’ll probably keep saying it every December for the rest of my life. But seriously, you guys, it’s December.

For me, December is a time of quiet contemplation – liberally seasoned with fevered dashes to finish goals, more events than one calendar can hold, and, normally, an Epic Eastern Washington Road Trip to see all the facets of the family.

This year the road trip will be a little mellower, and so far my calendar isn’t yet full to bursting. Maybe I’ll actually squeeze in some quiet contemplation after all.

So, while were on the subject, how’s your calendar looking?

If you’re not doing anything on December 9th, you should totally add this into it:

Book launch party!

When: December 9th, 2015, 7pm
Where: Alameda Brewing Company, 4765 NE Fremont St, Portland
What: A book launch party for Shifting Borders and A Vanishing Glow
Why: To hear us read, buy some books, drink some free beer, and make merry

My friend Alexis Radcliff, the author of A Vanishing Glow, and I will be hanging out at Alameda Brewing Company with some print books for sale and some pitchers of beer we hope you’ll help us drink.

Alameda Brewing has graciously offered us happy hour pricing on their yummy appetizers, so come hungry and prepare to have fun!

The Facebook invite is here.

Speaking of print books…

…they’re finally available!

I know some of you have been asking when you’ll have a chance to hold a print copy of Shifting Borders in your hot little hands – and folks, that time is now.

If you’re not too keen on paying for that print copy, though…

A giveaway!

I’ll be giving away one signed copy to a lucky person on my mailing list.

What, you’re not on my mailing list? Well, go put your info in the sidebar for a chance to win. At this point, my newsletter is mainly, well, news, and comes out once or twice a month. I’m currently working on a novella in the Bikes to New Sarjun world which I’ll be serializing exclusively for newsletter subscribers. So rest assured it’ll be worth joining.

Happy December, everybody!
