If you read my blog last month you’ll know that I anticipate the publication of two new books, in different genres, this year: BAD TO THE BONE, the third Barkery mystery, will be a May 2017 release, and PROTECTOR WOLF, the eighth paranormal romance in my Alpha Force miniseries for Harlequin Nocturne, about a covert military unit of shapeshifters, will be published in June. And I did mention some of my other deadlines.
But that’s not all I’m doing that’s writing related. Last weekend I attended an author event at the Santa Clarita, California, Library. Soon I’ll attend Mystery on the Menu at the Cerritos Library.
In March is California Dreamin’, a conference held by several Southern California chapters of Romance Writers of America. In April I’ll attend Malice Domestic, all about cozy mysteries, in Bethesda, Maryland.
First thing in May, I’ll attend a couple of events held by the Ridge Writers, which is the East Sierra Branch of the 106-year-old California Writers Club. In June is the California Crime Writers Conference, which is a joint event by the local Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime chapters. Then, in August, I’ll be giving a presentation to the new Santa Clarita Chapters of Romance Writers of America.
I think that’s all I’ve scheduled so far, although I will attend meetings of local chapters of the organizations I belong to as well as get-togethers with writer friends.
Gee, putting it all down in one spot like this really does demonstrate even to myself that 2017 is going to be a busy year.
And have I described everything I’ll be doing that’s related to writing?
