How to Spear Light Like a Boss and other events…

It’s going to be a busy June!  I’m quite excited about Spear of Light, which is coming out June 7th.LikeABoss-144dpi

First up — I’m doing a mini-tour with my good friend Adam Rakunas. Adam is a brilliant writer, a fabulous cook, a fellow bike-rider, and one of the best people I know.  His new book is titled Like a Boss and he came up with the brilliant idea of titling out mini-tour “How to Spear Light like a Boss.” How cool is that? There’s more — both Spear of Light and Like a Boss are the second books in series where the first books were nominated for the Phillip K. Dick Award.

University Bookstore in Seattle Joint Reading

June 7 at 7 PM at University Book Store (4326 University Way NE
Seattle, WA 98105) – The tour begins! This is the actual launch day of SPEAR OF LIGHT and LIKE A BOSS. Adam and I will read, take questions, and answer the most important question a writer can answer: where do we eat when this is done?

Seattle-area Bike-ride Reading (yes, you read that right!) – with special guest Laura Anne Gilman!

June 12 at 12 PM at Husky Stadium (3800 Montlake Blvd, Seattle, Washington 98105) – Laura Anne Gilman will join us for a flat 2.6 mile bike ride from the Husky Stadium Light Rail Station to Solsticio in Fremont. Riders of all ages and skill groups are welcome on this mellow no-drop ride. Note: if there is a catastrophic change in the weather (hurricane, hot hail, sky ferrets), the ride will be cancelled and we’ll just read at Solsticio at 1pm.

Powell’s Beaverton, Oregon Joint Reading

June 14 at 7 PM at Powell’s Books At Cedar Hills Crossing (3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd, Beaverton, Oregon 97214). Come and see how two science fiction authors are after a long day in the car. Note: Adam says this is probably the same as the other events, but hungrier.

I also have at least two guest blog posts and at least one podcast appearance coming up. There are hot rumors of a book giveaway. I’ll post about all these new things when they come out.

No rest for the wicked and overcommitted!  This will be fun.
