My DragonCon schedule

Hey all,

I can't believe DragonCon is a week and a half away!! So excited to go and wear my costumes and help promote Scorched! In fact, those who attend DragonCon will be the FIRST to have a chance to buy the book as it doesn't officially come out until Tuesday, September 3rd.

If you are looking to get a copy, I will have an official signing during the con (11:30am on Saturday) and also will be part of a big author booth in the vendor area where you can purchase a copy and have it signed. Credit cards are accepted!

Booth is: #2205/#2304
