Mayan December now available in audio

I’m very pleased that Mayan December is now available in at Audible.com.  I like the narrator, too.  I’m only through about a chapter, but she sounds really good and easy to listen to, like a nice match of voice to book. The release tickles me.  Mayan December is one of my favorite books, and it’s […]

This is the week to prepare to start Mayan December

Well, it’s December 2012.  If you order Mayan December this week, you should have it in time to start reading along with the days as they count down to the end of the Mayan calendar.  A few of my friends are planning to do this, and I’m hoping it might be fun. It’s NOT like […]

Coming up: The best time to read Mayan December

I’m right in the middle of the release activity for The Creative Fire, but I also noticed that it’s getting to be late in 2012.  This is a great time to read Mayan December, which tracks the world from December 10th through December 21st 2012.  It’s available from Prime Books (Sean Wallace) and from the […]

Worldcon Schedule

Friday August 31st:  (Updated to add Pyr panel!) 1:30 – 3:00 PM Pyr Rising:  Columbus Hall, Rooms A&B.  A shared panel between Dragon Con and Worldcon.  This will be extra fun because I have been in a writing workshop all week with one of the other Pyr authors, E.C.  Myers.  He will be on the […]

Events: I’ll be reading from Mayan December in Olympia on Thursday night.

I’ll be reading from Mayan December in Olympia on Thursday night at the Timberland Regional Library in Olympia.  Love to see some of you there!  The snowpocalypse appears to have quieted, but it is still a cold and snowy landscape, at least around out house.  So if you do come, drive carefully!

Marketing Mayan December

Mayan December is different than my other work.  That doesn’t mean readers of The Silver Ship and the Sea might not like it, some clearly do.  But – very different than my other work — every unsolicited email or review or comment has been from a women.  A lot of my science fictions readers are […]

Fulfillment: The Goodreads Giveaway Process

Goodreads does a book giveaway program.  This is basically a chance for authors or publicists or publishers to give away copies of the book.  I just finished a run through of the program where I gave away 10 copies of Mayan December. I like the process of autographing copies and sticking them in envelopes and […]

Worldcon Report – Belated

I came back from the convention to be swept immediately into busy days and a visit from family. So here is a rather belated and short Worldcon report.  I’m usually by myself at Worldcon, but my long-time friend Gisele from Florida (I met her over half my life ago!) and my partner Toni joined me […]

Mayan December Launch Party and Trailer

I am a bit nervous about the book launch party at Worldcon tomorrow.  It’s the first time I’ve done a book party of any kind (much less at Worldcon).  Louise Marley and I are co-hosting a book launch – for her excellent Brahm’s Deception (Kensington) and for Mayan December (Prime).  Since it’s a year for […]

Worldcon 2011 Schedule

I’m pretty happy with the 2011 Worldcon schedule.  Lots of Mayan December launch activity, a reading for No Man’s Land, a party, and some great topics to discuss.  I hope to see many of you there. Thu 13:00 – 14:00, The Amish Approach to Changing Technology: The Error of Presumed Neutrality of Technology (Panel), D05 (RSCC) […]
