Happy Author!

Folks; life is exciting and I’m honored to be interviewed in two places today! 
First, please meet Dara Beevas and Amy Quale at WiseInk Creative Publishing.  The WiseInk was one of the first (and best) resources I discovered as I began exploring self-publishing and I subscribe to their terrific blog.  WiseInk has posted an interview with me about my short memoir Head Buckets & Hashtags!

I’d also like to introduce you to Kristin McFarland, who’s been interviewing authors from across the genre spectrum for her blog.  Ms. McFarland asks tough and thought provoking questions that challenge her interviewees to dig deep for answers.  I enjoyed talking with her about contemporary fantasy and my debut novel Magic All Around.  Don’t just read my interview, read the previous author interviews and watch for the ones not yet posted; that’s what I’m doing!

In case you don’t already know, Magic All Around is going live on Sunday, May 12 at Amazon Kindle!  If you don’t have a Kindle reading device, Amazon has free applications for smart phones and all manner of desk and laptop computers so you can read Kindle content on the device(s) you already have.  If you have questions, please tweet or e-mail me and I’ll be happy to help you figure it out.
YOU are invited to my 

Twitter Launch Party
for Magic All Around on Monday, May 13th from noon-2p.m. AKST (4-6pm Eastern).  Please let me know if you need help sorting out the time zones!  We’ll be using the hashtag #magicallaround 

Plan to have a blast, ‘cause there’ll be fun, games and give-aways!
