In the Shadow of Blackbirds, so I've made several plans to promote the novel, both online and in person, from now through the end of October.
Already underway is my stop at The Uninterrupted Reader, part of the 2013 Debut Authors Bash. I'm sharing a list of my Top 10 Favorite Ghost Movies and giving away a signed copy of In the Shadow of Blackbirds.
On Friday, September 27, at 7:00 pm, I'll be speaking about and reading from In the Shadow of Blackbirds at Bards & Brews, a monthly event held at Primrose & Tumbleweeds, 248 E Main Street, Hillsboro, OR. Jacobsen's Books will be on hand to sell the novel, and I'll be signing copies after the presentation. Here's a flyer of all the authors who will be participating that evening.
In October, I'll be making three appearances in Portland, OR, including a panel and signing session at Wordstock 2013! Here's my schedule:
Sunday, October 6, 2013, Noon-2:00 pm:
Noon - Beyond Twilight: The Future of YA Paranormal Lit, with Cat Winters, April Genevieve Tucholke, and Teri Brown (moderated by Miriam Forster)
