Imminent Brain Implosion

So I've been neglecting my poor blog because of the #WeNeedDiverseBooks campaign and all the blogging I'm actually doing over there instead. If you are curious, here's the link.

There's been so much to do that I've been in constant state of blind panic as I worry about what I'm forgetting. Not to mention that no writing has been getting done and you can imagine what I've been spending all my time on.

But I'm really excited that our BookCon panel is this Saturday! I am looking forward to seeing as many people as I can there! We are up against John Grisham and Carl Hiaasen, but I'm sure people would rather see us, right? Right? :o)

Here's the information again for anyone who wants to come! We will have some buttons and bookmarks to pass out AND if you come by our table, we would LOVE to have you take a photo submission for our blog!

Once your book is out and you start trying to promote, the writing type just seems to dry up.

As a courtesy to other campers, don't leave your lighting on overnight, if you are close to others. Pack a timer that you can attach to your lights that will automatically shut them off after a certain time. satta king
