And On To The Next
First up, I'm excited for tomorrow, actually, because I'll be presenting "Make ‘Em Laugh – How to Put Humor Into Your Writing" at Dog-Eared Pages' Friday Night Writes event, 5:30-7:00, 16428 N. 32nd St., Suite 111, Phoenix, AZ 85032, 602-283-5423. $5 entry fee. Come on down and see the me!
Winner has until until October 7th to claim their prize. After that time, the Gods of Random will snatch back the prize and demand a new sacrifice, I mean, winner.
Now, I know what all y'all are thinking: is there another contest coming? Why yes, there is. But first, we have other business to attend to.
Because it's time for some reviews! Check out what Alien Romances thought of Alien Separation and the Alien series as a whole.
Then, see what Chica Reader thought of Touched by an Alien and Alien Tango, what Tiana Lagrone and Once Upon a Chapter thought of Touched by an Alien, and what Books in Brogan thought of Alien in the Family, Universal Alien, and Alien Separation.
Then see what Tangent has to say about Unidentified Funny Objects 4 -- hint: it's even better than UFO3, and they loved UFO3.
Another reminder that A Bug's Life, A Study in Starlets, The X-Files: Trust No One anthology featuring my story, "Sewers", and the Temporally Out of Order anthology featuring "Alien Time Warp", which takes place during Alien Separation, are all available now for purchase. (Want to know what was going on with the All Seeing Mountain? Find out in Temporally Out of Order.) Don't miss out having these great reads as you head into the weekend! BTW, Temporally Out of Order hit in the Amazon Top 25. So don't miss out on what's clearly one of the best anthologies going right now!
Next, check out what science fiction romances cool author Darlene Reilley recommends over at Fantasy, Futuristic, and Paranormal. And catch up on a late San Diego Comic-Con update (and mine was late, so no judging going on here!) from the Autograph Hound.
This Friday isn't the only chance to see the me coming up. In fact, you have plenty of chances in the next few months. Check out the Datebook for details, including my appearances at Comic Media Expo in Mesa, AZ (Oct. 16-18), AZ Consortium of the Arts' Fall Festival of the Arts (Oct. 25), Tucson Comic Con (Nov. 6-8), Free Fall Writer's Workshop (Nov. 14). And December is, of course, book tour for Alien in Chief, and more details and stops will be announced soon.
But now, what you've been patiently reading to get to has arrived. Look, it's another contest!
That's right, we're continuing to clean my office and this time the edited galley for Alien Collective is what's up for grabs! The Rafflecopter is below the signature line. This contest is for Hook Me Up! subscribers only. If you're not on yet, get on now, because this is just one of many contests coming down for the rest of this year. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Hook Me Up!" in the subject line and you'll be in and able to win, win, win.
Contest will run from today, October 1, 2015 through Thursday, October 15, 2015. Winner will be announced by October 20th and will have until October 26th to claim their prize. After that time, the Gods of Random will snatch back the prize and demand a new sacrifice, I mean, winner. Contest is open internationally. And yes, if you've won in recent contests you can still enter this one. The Gods of Random enjoy being generous sometimes, and you never know when it'll be your time to score more than once!
That's it for today, but as always, more's on the way. So enjoy the slide into the weekend and let's be winning readers out there. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!
