Live from the Lavender Library

I read from Behr Facts tonight while we had an evening of milk and cookies at Sacramento’s Lavender Library. Want to see my small portion of the evening? Well, here’s the video on Scott’s Facebook site.
Also reading from their books tonight were Kim Fielding, Amy Lane, D. L. Kent, LE FrankGenevieve Wolfe, and Scott Coatsworth. It was a great evening with a small but attentive audience. We’ve consequently been asked back for a fall event and to share the Library’s booth for upcoming Pride events. So this should be a really interesting year!
By the way, the audio book version of Behr Facts is on sale at Amazon for $1.99, down from its usual price of $14.59. Quite a savings if you like audio books. (And the narrator, David Ross, reads it much better than I do!)

Outside the Margins and Making Margins

My last column for Prism Book Alliance runs today. I talk about all sorts of things as well as recommend two books, so you might want to check it out.

I'm also going slowly in setting up my new website pathenshaw.com. So far I'm building it myself, but am going to ask for assistance from J. Scott Coatsworth next month if I can't get everything figured out through online tutorials and two how-to books. We'll see.

And finally, my friends, here's one of Jake's photos from a recent camera club outing. I thought this little sign was funny.

In the Planning

The next book in the Foothills Pride series, tentatively titled Wood Worked Love, will give readers a look at Guy Stone's big brother. Guy is one of the main characters in What's in a Name? and has been running Stonewall Saloon by himself while his brother was in the Army.

Now retired, Eric Stone needs time to get his head together about what he wants to do in civilian life. Since Matt Comstock is in Stone Acres to restore the Stone family cabin and barn to turn them into a history museum, Guy urges Eric to help him.

Neither Eric nor Matt is looking for love, but cupid is stalking them. How good are they at evasion? Or will love's arrows find them? Stay tuned to find out.

If you have read or heard What's in a Name?, now's a good time to catch up while I write Wood Worked. You can buy a copy of the eBook or audio at:

Dreamspinner Press
Amazon
Amazon UK
Amazon Australia
Audible
Barnes & Noble

A Chance to Win a $10 Coffee Card

I'm being spotlighted at J. Scott Coatsworth's blog today and am talking about writing and miniatures and cabbages and kings. Scott's a fellow Sacramentan and probably the hardest working author I know.

His first book, Skythane, just came out from Dreamspinner Press, and I'm reading it during every minute of free time I have. So far I'm enjoying it quite a bit--and I'm not really a fan of sci-fy.

Check out his book as well as my spotlight on his blog. You could win a $10 coffee card by leaving a comment there. Easy-peasy, right?

Another Terrific Audio Review

I'm not quite sure how to keep up with the audio reviews because when I do a Google search, it seems I find another one. Which is great--don't get me wrong!

But still, I wish I knew about them as they ran so that I could tell everyone about them.

The latest is an audio review of Redesigning Max, #2 in the Foothills Pride series, from TTC Books and Review. The reviewer calls is an "allover good romance" which really made my evening.
