February is an exciting month for me: my first Book Launch season!

launch clouds

Yes, yes, the book was published around Christmas, but now I actually get to celebrate it, with friends and strangers alike, with (tea)cup in one hand, and signing pen in the other!

The first event will be at a bookshop called Periscope Books in Forest Grove, OR:

Sunday, Feb. 15, 2-4 PM

The second event will be at a bookshop called Another Read Through in North Portland, OR:

Thursday, March 5, 7-8 PM

And if you’re lucky and I meet you at one of these and you charm my socks off, I may invite you to a dinner party chez moi to celebrate this new step in marketing and authorship, for Terminalia!

I’d love to see you at either place, but if you don’t live in the area, tell your friends who do! Author readings are a cool way to learn about someone’s writing process, and you’d even find out what ship gave me the idea for the book. So come on down!

And just to entice you a bit more, a bonus Launch Sequence comic, courtesy of XKCD:
