Upcoming Appearance

The family emergency has passed and life is settling back into normal at last. I've made my to-do list for the day and I'm scratching my head. The practical side of me knows there is no way I'm going to get everything done. The overachiever in me is determined to try.

The countdown clock is winding down to the release of Dawnbreaker, which is slated to hit the shelves on Tuesday, September 29. I'm starting to make the rounds with interviews and contests. If you're interested in having me visit your blog, an interview, or just a contest to celebrate Dawnbreaker, please email me at JocelynnDOTdrakeATgmailDOTcom. I'm always up for a little fun.

And don't worry. There will be plenty of fun to be found here at this blog during the coming weeks.

In between writing and running errands, I am working on scheduling a series of appearances.

For a lot of fun, be sure to catch The Beyond radio show on http://www.authorsonair.com/ on Thursday, September 17 at 2pm EST. Kim Harrison, Vicki Pettersson, Melissa Marr, Jeaniene Frost, and myself will be discussing our novellas in the Unbound anthology. It's sure to be great fun and you don't want to miss out!

I will be doing a book signing on Saturday, October 3 at 2 PM EST at the Crestview Hills Towne Center Borders bookstore to celebrate the release of Dawnbreaker. I'll be signing books, giving away nifty swag, and probably telling secrets. Stop by and visit if you're in the Cincinnati area.

I am in the process of lining up a second signing for early December at a bookstore in West Chester, Ohio. Nothing has been confirmed yet. I will post updates as soon as the signing has been confirmed.

Looking ahead to 2010:

I am planning to attend the Romantic Times convention in Columbus, OH from April 28 through May 2. I will be signing books and hanging out with many great writers. Come join the fun!

I am also considering attending the Romance Writers of America (RWA) National Conference in Nashville, TN from July 28 through July 31.

I am still looking around at the many other conferences that dot the landscape and I'm trying to line up at least one more. Some of the top contenders include ComicCon and DragonCon. If you have any suggestions, I would be happy to hear them.

I'll be emailing you once Gmail decides to work.........

I'd love you to do a guest post on my blog! I don't know what the topic would be but since you're the writer I'll let you decide that! :)

Again, I'll email you later when gmail's not failing.

How about a sighting in Dayton around October 25th?? I would be there. :)

Now I wish my October schedule wasn't filled up. I would so totally love to have you visit Literary Escapism.

Oh yea! I plan on going to RT next year! I sent you an email asking if you would want to stop by my blog for an interview as well. My blog isn't as nice as some of the others, but I thought I'd give an interview a try! ;)

Looking forward to Dawnbreaker!
