...And Then Winter Came


Had a blast last night at the multi-author signing. I even received a sketch from Howard Tayler author/illustrator of Shlock Mercenary.
Thanks Howard it was a great surprise. (I even heard it captured my shifty eyes incredibly well.)
I enjoyed discussing writing business with Daron Fraley, Berin Stephens and Jaleta Clegg. I am especially taking some of the things John Brown said to heart. I will make it to some Con's and get more novels out this coming year!

After the signing at Dragon's and Fairytales bookstore, we went around the corner to Village Pizza-thanks to Eric James Stone = he bought!

We discussed most of the ways we have all the broken the law one way or another-usually with explosives. Larry Correia also had some great tales of pranks and road kill. We had a lot of laughs and then noticed the snow was falling, thick as a shut-ins dandruff.

Winter came with a vengeance.

We bid our goodbyes and I drove home slowly through the blinding snow grateful for good friends.

Sounds great! Wish I could have been there. Love reading your experience with mult-author signings. I'm planning a few of these myself.

They are a lot of fun Terry. I am sure you will enjoy them.

Eric just sat by me while I ate my sandwich. There was no purchasing of pizza for me ... he must have been saving up for the cool people.

Sounds great. I really enjoyed that YouTube talk from Correia and Brown. Must have been great to have been on the other side of the fence for you.
