New blog posts!

April 13th, 2011

As of tomorrow, my new post for Writer Unboxed will be posted. Check my Facebook page tomorrow for a direct link to the new post. As some of you may know, I’ve been working on my third novel, and I contemplate my own writing process for this month’s post. The Mess in the Middle, the title of the post, and the problems I’ve been encountering in my writing, are always tricky to handle. I love a good challenge.

And I’m working on my next post for Lipstick Chronicles. Keep an eye out for that as well!

I’ll be in Marblehead tonight

April 7th, 2011

Tonight at 6:30pm I’ll be at the Spirit of ’76 Bookstore on Marblehead, MA to do a reading, signing, and Q&A about The Map of True Places. Ever since the Cornerstone Books in Salem closed (I miss that bookstore), it’s nice to still feel like I have a slice of home at the Spirit of ’76. You can read more about the event here. Hope to see you there!

Two more events!

March 31st, 2011

On Friday, April 1, I’ll be at Bank Square Books in Mystic, CT. They’re being kind enough to hold an author luncheon and signing for me. The event is at 12:30pm.

Then, on Saturday, April 2, I’m headed to Manchester Center, VT to visit Northshire Bookstore for a discussion and signing at 7pm.
