The time is coming for my favorite writer's conference, and I'm not just saying that because it's practically in my backyard. I'll be there. If you are not familiar with James RIver Writers, I highly recommend that you check it out. There are great speakers, and panels. It never fails to teach me something.
We all picture our own cast when we read. So, let's have some fun and imagine who we would cast in the Once & Future Series. Twice a week for the next 3 weeks, I'll post a character. Comment with a name and/or picture of whoever you imagined in the role while you were reading. I'll reveal the final selections during the online launch party.
Come and see the great highland games, dancing, fiddle, and band competitions, and great music. There are even great activities for kids. Mine love the archery. I have also heard that Clan Currie is planning to have some interesting Gaelic culture info in their tent. One of the best parts of these games is that they're dog friendly, so you might even see Wee Fergus out there.
Once again, I'll be attending the James River Writer's Conference. It's a terrific conference with some great speakers lined up for this year. If you are in VA and are not a member of JRW, you are missing out. If you're going to JRW too, I'm the one with the blue hair. Find me and say hi.
I am so excited to be exhibiting at the first annual Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival. I love being indie and working with other indies to raise awareness of the great work being done by indie authors. Even better is finding a festival like this right in my own home town.
Location: Director's Guild Theater
Ticketing: Ticketed attendees only. Due to limited seating tickets are prioritized for Outlander United members.
While in New York, I will be sponsoring an Outlanders United screening of the season 2 premier of Outlander on April 9th. So, after the Tartan Day Parade, many Outlander fans will be gathering to watch the show. As a sponsor, I will be selling and signing books. There are several other official sponsors:
I will be at the Porter Branch (in north Stafford) of the Central Rappahannock Regional Libraries for a local author reception from 7:00 - 8:30. Come out to mix and mingle with local authors, chat about our books, writing and whatever is on your mind.
I will have a few books with me to sell and sign. Would love to see some of you there.
I will once again be attending the James River Writers Conference. I love that this terrific conference happens practically in my back yard. This year's lineup of guest speakers looks great, including some friends of mine.

I'm especially excited about the Friday Master Class, Surviving Self-Publishing: Patience and Perserverance with the very sharp, Mary Chris Escobar and Alexis Anne.
I'll be participating in the Get It Together Blog Hop with some of my fellow writers. See how some of us organize our writer-type stuff and stay productive in the face of children, day jobs, writer neuroses, and endless internet distractions.
