Signing books for literacy

On Sunday, November 20, I’ll be at the Barnes and Noble in Vestal, NY from 1-4 p.m., along with science fiction/fantasy authors Chris Moriarty and Joshua Palmatier (who also writes as Benjamin Tate). We’ll be signing books to raise money for the Literacy Volunteers of Broome and Tioga Counties.

If you can’t make it, you can still make a difference. From 11/20/11 to 11/24/11, visit BN.COM/bookfairs and enter Bookfair ID 10600476 when you check out. It doesn’t cost you any extra, and a  percentage of your purchase will benefit the literacy volunteers.

Books make great gifts–especially when you can give the gift of literacy at the same time!


Fall has fallen!

After finishing my Bloodstone blog tour and a writing project, I’ve got a few days’ space to catch my breath. Fall is my favorite season, so I’m delighted it’s still going strong in my part of the world. Today we had mild temperatures in the 70s. It’ll get colder toward the end of the week, but I like brisk days–“turtleneck weather”–too.

I’ve got my work cut out for me, though. Even though we have a small back yard, it’s currently ankle-deep in leaves.

And the tree hasn’t finished dropping them yet.

Still, I’m looking forward to grabbing a rake and getting to work. After weeks of spending most of my time sitting in front of a computer, there’s something satisfying about physical work. (Of course, when my shoulders are aching and I’ve got blisters on my hands, I’ll be more than ready to go back to writing.)

Happy fall!
