News! January 19, 2013

This week in Spann of Time news:

Shinobi news!

The new author website is almost ready to launch, and I can’t wait to share it with the world.

Also, I’m looking forward to seeing galleys of Claws of the Cat, which should be finished some time in February.

I’ve finished polish edits on Book 2 of the Shinobi Mystery series, tentatively titled Blade of the Samurai, and I’ll be sending it to the publisher very soon.

Upcoming Appearances

1. On January 24 I’m blogging at Chiseled in Rock. This week, we’re looking at grants of rights in publishing contracts.

2. Also on the 24th, I’ll be at the Debutante Ball – bringin’ the crazy!

3. I’ve been invited to speak at the upcoming WANAcon online writers’ conference, which will take place February 22-23, 2013. Details to come, but the topics include author business plans, publishing contracts, and acting as the watchdog for your writing career.

4. And last, but certainly not least, I’ll be at the Historical Novel Society Conference in Florida, June 21-23. I’m participating in a panel on writing historical mystery – and I hope to see you there!
