Brenda Cooper is awesome. She is a powerful writer, a cycling buddy, and a mentor willing to give time and advice to anyone who wades into the magically gut-churning world of publishing. Plus, she’s a lot of fun, which is why I jumped at the chance to do a bunch of joint readings with her to celebrate the launches of our new books, SPEAR OF LIGHT (the sequel to Brenda’s PKD Award-nominated EDGE OF DARK), and LIKE A BOSS, the sequel to the PKD Award-nominated WINDSWEPT, written by some jackasss.
Where are we going to be? Well, friend, if you live in the Puget Sound or Portland areas, you’re in luck! Details below the fold.
June 7 at 7 PM at University Book Store (4326 University Way NE
Seattle, WA 98105) – The tour begins! This is the actual launch day of SPEAR OF LIGHT and LIKE A BOSS. Brenda and I will read, take questions, and answer the most important question a writer can answer: where do we eat when this is done?
June 12 at 12 PM at Husky Stadium (3800 Montlake Blvd, Seattle, Washington 98105) – Laura Anne Gilman will join us for a flat 2.6 mile bike ride from the Husky Stadium Light Rail Station to Solsticio in Fremont. Riders of all ages and skill groups are welcome on this mellow no-drop ride. Note: if there is a catastrophic change in the weather (hurricane, hot hail, sky ferrets), the ride will be cancelled and we’ll just read at Solsticio at 1pm.
June 14 at 7 PM at Powell’s Books At Cedar Hills Crossing (3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd, Beaverton, Oregon 97214). Come and see how two science fiction authors are after a long day in the car. Note: probably the same as the other events, but hungrier.
