Shore Leave 39 And Free Books!

Just a reminder: It’s okay to leave comments!

We interrupt this blog post to present a bit of important Shore Leave news...

They have actually posted the schedules on the web BEFORE the conference started this year! This is nearly unheard of. You can see them here: Shore Leave 39 Schedules

We now return to our regularly scheduled blog post...

Yes, I'll be attending Shore Leave again this year. Looking forward to the writing workshops, the art show, and meeting a few authors. I hope to do a blog post from there as well.

And if you see me there, it may pay to hang close by! Well, within a reasonable distance—I like my personal space. Anyway, I might just be handing out a few free books—not only those with my stories, but from other writers, too! Yes, I know these aren't all sci-fi titles, but the folks who attend these shows don't just read sci-fi! And if they do, I feel it's my duty to broaden their horizons. I'll have horror, romance, and more, more, more! Here's what I have lined up so far:

Some of the books to give away at Shore Leave 39

Tales From the Bully Box, an anti-bullying anthology
(with my story, One Above Zero)
Seeing What Develops, a romance by Terri Deno
Outside the Lines, a romance by Beth Rhodes
All the What Ifs, a coming-of-age story by Angela Lynn 

Some of the books to give away at Shore Leave 39

Gothic Blue Book III (Graveyard Edition), a horror anthology
(with my poem, The Ballad of Drunken Jack)
Mostly Dark, a flash fiction collection by Miranda Kate
Human 76, a post-apocalyptic anthology by Lisa Shambrook and many others
(includes my story, The Song of Aiden)

Some of the books to give away at Shore Leave 39

A Symphony of Dragons, a collection of dragon tales by Lisa Shambrook
Dead Men's Tales, a pirate-themed horror anthology
(with my story,  Skarett's Treasure)

Giving away these copies is a great way to help the authors gain a wider audience and for me to reclaim a little free space around the house, especially since I either have another hard copy of these, an eBook version, or both.

Even if you don't want a free book (yeah, like that would ever happen...), please stop and say hello—especially if you are a writer, and doubly so if you are a reader!

See you there!

  1. They'd better go to a good home! ;)

    1. I'll do my best, although many of those attending have a questionable reputation. Like me, for instance...

      Oh, and I added Lisa's "A Symphony of Dragons" and "Dead Men's Tales" (with one of my stories) since you read this.
