And book three of The Last Dragon Charmer is titled….

REALM BREAKER (The Last Dragon Charmer #3)!!!  The title still could change but I don’t *think* it will. I’m revising REALM BREAKER now. I got a great editorial letter from my editor and good input from my agent, so my brain is full of ideas. IDEAS! Lots of then. Thanks to Jocelyn and David for those. I feel a bit overwhelmed, too, but mostly feel sparkly and amazed that I’m working on book three! Honestly, I don’t know how I managed to write three books.

I have lots of work ahead of me. I have to edit and think and make the draft better. There is so much work to do. So much work to do.  That’s how I feel at the beginning of a revision, or a draft, or a story. Writing is hard! And fun…definitely fun, too.  But also HARD…

First Review for Book Two…

Yay! It was great to see this from Kirkus for book two QUEST MAKER in my The Last Dragon Charmer series. I’m really excited about the second book so I hope others will be too. Beware, though, spoilers abound in the middle paragraph of the review!

The Fountainhead Bookstore Author Event

On Wednesday, July 15th, I’m going to be at The Fountainhead Bookstore in Hendersonville, NC, at 11am to talk about my book and about writing! Then, in the afternoon, I’ll be at the Hendersonville Library to do the same. It should be a fun day with sword play, magic, and mischief. There won’t be any reading Pokemon tomorrow – at least, not that I know of – but here is a reading Pokemon to hold everyone over until Wednesday’s excitement. More to come later…

A nice Sunday at Malaprops

MalapropsIt’s always exciting to me to visit the wonderful bookstores in Asheville, NC. I’ve never met a bookstore I didn’t like, but the ones in Asheville mean a lot to me because my debut book is set in their city. Last Sunday, I was lucky enough to spend time at Malaprops. It’s a cool store with a cafe. It’s always heart-warming when someone reads and likes my book. I must admit, one of the most exciting things about visit was seeing my book as a staff pick!

The booksellers made me feel welcome. I also got to discuss my book. As a writer, that is always a good time. The other thing about answering questions and chatting about my book is it makes me think about it more. Sometimes, I realize, oh hey, this book I read a long time ago about a girl with telekinesis inspired me some.

If you’re curious about the Malaprops name, they have a nice explanation here.

It looks like my book is in great company, too!
