Castlefest at Castle Keukenhof in Lisse !

Let’s get right to the news!

I will be at Castlefest  for the full festival.  Their Website is https://www.castlefest.nl/en/

When?  From August 2 to 5, 2018  Where?  Lisse, Landgoed Kasteel de Keukenhof, The Netherlands

What can you expect?  Well, follow the above link to their website.  But here’s a taste, “music, fantasy writers, themed catering, medieval crafts and a large market which offers everything a fantasy fan is looking for.”

I’m really looking forward to seeing readers there, and also to meeting up with my long time Dutch writer friend, Thomas Olde Heuvelt. If you like not only some shivers but some humor mixed with your fantasy, you should read his latest book Hex.

In other travel news for this year,  I will be in Portugal for Festival BANG! in late October, and at Lucca Comics and Games in Lucca Italy in early November.  More on those visits when we are a bit closer to them.

Paris Monday March 19th

Wow.  Salon du Livre in Paris was exciting and exhausting.  Lots of books, wonderful displays, and ongoing discussions.  I was at the J’ai Lu booth and signed for four hours!  Kat kept a rough count of people; I signed for over 270 readers!  Today my hand is a bit weary, but it’s a much quieter… Continue Reading

Getting the Little Stuff Done

I often hear from would-be authors, “But I just don’t have time to write.  I think about my book and my story all day, but I don’t get time to sit down at the keyboard.” Somethings that is horribly true.  Today is my day to be de-railed by minor tasks.  I need to take some… Continue Reading

Update to Autographed Books

University Book Store is  having some growing pains with their new database/operating system. The Glitch is that the ‘comments’ box is not appearing sometimes when readers are ordering a book.  Hence you cannot request an autograph or say how you’d like the book signed. And the second glitch is that sometimes the site is saying… Continue Reading
