Updated Book and Schedule Information + March Giveaway

With Frost Burned being released Jan 28 in paperback we thought we'd gather all of the latest information we have on the upcoming books with new details on the anthology. Mike's lastest Twitter on Jan 27 talks about the status of that book. Here it is, if you've missed it:


Patty turned in all of the short stories for "Shifting Shadows" last night, though there's several rounds of edits ahead.


We also have a giveaway coming up for those of you who want another chance to win Night Broken.

Patty will be teaching at the Leuphana Universistät in Lüneburg for the first week, then giving a talk a the U.S. Embassy in Berlin sometime on the second week. Her assistant, Ann, and husband Mike will be traveling with her to make sure that we don't miss out on the fun, and heckle from the audience (don't knock it, we're professional hecklers)


August 14-18, 2014: London, England

We'll be flying to London for tea and crumpets. Except that we don't drink tea, and wouldn't recognize a crumpet if one bit us. Still, we're dashing of for LonCon, the World Science Fiction Convention. Hopefully, we'll get to meet a few of Patty's UK readers, with whom we've exchanged many lovely emails.


October 18-19,2014: Bellingham WA

The Bellingham Comic Con invited Patty to attend as a guest of honor, and we're honored to accept. So, we'll be there with bells on. Actually, probably not bells, but I'm not sure what we'll be wearing to comic con. Awww Jimminy Cricket, now I've got to come up with a costume, and I'm pretty sure I'm over the load limit for Spandex. Hmmm. Maybe I can go as Totoro . . .
