Local Authors & You, and NaNoWriMo Begins!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on November 1, 2017

I’ll be at the Local Authors & You event this Saturday (November 4) at the Viridian Event Center from 1-5 PM. I’ll be offering the “short version” of my workshop on Writing Pulp for Fun & Profit at some point during the day, and otherwise I’ll be hanging out in the authors area signing books and chatting with people.

If you are reasonably local to the Salt Lake valley, this is a good opportunity to check out some of the local talent and books available. I know that in my case, I’ve been surprised to find out that a book I already knew was written by a local author. But since the holiday season is rapidly approaching, I think it’s a really cool way to discover great new books you may not have heard of, and be able to get them signed by the author, and offer them as gifts as friends. Well, and getting a copy for yourself, of course.

I’m actually down to just a couple of copies of the pictured anthologies. Shame on me. I’ll have a handful of copies of Cirsova 4 and StoryHack 0, but when those are gone, they’ll be gone. I’ll have several copies of Mirages & Speculations, StoryHack 1, and Cirsova 5 available.

Yeah, all of those last ones were published this year. I’m not kidding on the pitch for the Pulp Fictions stuff. Actually, StoryHack 0 was published this year too, and Cirsova 4 only came out less than a year ago. It’s been a busy year, and I’m not nearly as prolific as many authors I know.

Also – as a reminder – NaNoWriMo begins today. Can you get that novel written in a single month? Get cracking!

I’m going for it. My first novel is being published by Immortal Works Press, and is due to be released in March. I’m working on the sequel. My goal is to have the draft completed in November, and since I have a little over 50,000 words left, I’m using NaNoWriMo to help me push myself to completion. Then I can begin the next book in the series!
