This will be my last blog for the Wild and Wicked Cowboy Blog. What a wonderful group of authors and followers! I have loved every minute spent blogging and chatting with everyone, but my schedule has absolutely no wiggle-room left in it. With back-to-back deadlines, babysitting our grandson, and upcoming Reader Events, Conventions, and Conferences, something has to give.
Book 2 in my Small Town USA series, ONE DAY IN APPLE GROVE, will release June 1st. Book 3, WELCOME BACK TO APPLE GROVE, will release in December. Fingers crossed my digital Historical Western Romance comic, BRING ‘EM BACK ALIVE, will release mid-April. I finally got the rights back to my first book—and the first in my Irish Western Series, THE MARSHAL’S DETINY, I will have that available at RT, so be sure to stop by during the Graphic & EBk Expo, and I am writing a Frontier Romance that I hope to have completed before RT, as well.
YIKES! I only I could clone myself, but with a few minor changes…I’d be younger and more flexible, so I could keep up with our darling grandbaby—he’s fast, and it’s hard to play on the floor for hours at a time when I’m babysitting…I kindof get stuck if I sit Indian-Style. LOL!
If you’re planning to go to Barbara Vey’s Reader Appreciation Luncheon on April 27th, I’d love to see you. I’m one of the authors hosting a table, so if you’re planning to attend, please look for me. I’m planning on having fun decorations with a cool giveaway at the table—possibly books—and I’ll be signing my latest at the book fair that follows the luncheon. 🙂
From there, my hubby and I will be driving down to Kansas City, MO for RT. I’ll be part of the rowdy group of authors at the Cowboy Corral on Wednesday; on the panel of authors for Creating Graphic Novels on Thursday, and at the Afternoon Delight Bookseller & Librarian Event on Friday. I received my mega order of books already, so be sure to stop by one of the events before they’re all gone. 🙂
In June I’ll be signing at BEA at the Jacob Javitts Center, in NYC.
In July I’ll be attending RWA in Atlanta, Georgia – driving by myself this time. I’m thinking of agent-hunting aside from networking with other authors and industry professionals.
In August, I’ll be attending AAD – my first one—in Savannah, Georgia. Yep driving alone again and have some great promo, goodies, and books for this Reader Event, too. I’m one of the authors hosting the Elemental Masque so look for goodies there as well as books 🙂
In September, I’ll be attending Lora Leigh’s RAW in Hagerstown, MD and can’t wait—it’s my third one and I love the smaller setting where readers and authors can have a chance to breathe and chat about what they love most—Romance Books!
In October, I’ll be attending the NJRW Conference, and as their PAN Liaison, I’ll be running the PAN Retreat and helping to run the Bookseller Luncheon on Sunday following the Conference.
I may be able to squeeze in a trip to NYC to the Javitts center again for the NY ComicCon—hopefully to meet and greet new fans of my Historical Western Romance Comic 🙂
Good heavens—is that it? Lord I hope so, because I am exhausted just thinking about all of the above. For dates and times, visit my website www.chadmirand.com .
Soooo please do keep in touch!
