¶Since Ahriman: The Spirit of Destruction was published in June a couple of months ago, I've started doing occasional events. The point of these events is not to generate sales (although they are always a plus!), but rather to give people an opportunity to get to know me, and vice versa. So far I've met a number of readers, and writers, both published and aspiring, and I am looking forward to meeting many more.

Bay to Ocean Writers Conference, Wye Mills, MD, USA.
A smaller more intimate writers conference, with great opportunities to meet and learn from other authors.
Date and location TBD
Book Launch Party
I went to a book launch on September 7 and realized that I never celebrated the launch of my own book this summer. It's never too late to celebrate a victory, so I will be planning a launch party for sometime in the next couple of months.

An impromptu book signing at a local community center that I was visiting by chance. What a great way to spend one of the last days of my London writing vacation.

Event with the Book Divas on Tour hosted at the Barber Lounge for Men, Waldorf, MD, USA.
My first real book event – an evening of readings, conversation, and wine tasting with the Book Divas on Tour. We had a fantastic time talking about our work as authors and hearing from an audience of potential readers and writers.

I had a table at the Authors' Tent at the Baltimore Book Festival this year. It was a great opportunity to meet other authors potential readers.
October 10-12, 2014
Creatures, Crimes, and Creativity Conference, Baltimore, MD, USA.
This is the first writers' conference that I've attended. I learned a ton about the industry and got to meet some amazing other authors. I appeared on two panels: 'The Writer’s Muse. What inspires and cures writer’s block?' and 'Moving an idea from conception to a completed work'. It was a wonderful experience and I definitely plan on attending next year.
