It’s hard to believe the summer is rolling by so fast. Ours has been busy. The boy is home, bringing his part of the house back to life. He and I went to the Heroes Convention at Charlotte’s Convention Center in June. The boy is into cosplay, dressing up as character and attending the con in costume. This year he was Magneto (from X-Men, in case you’re not into comics). Here is he with members of the North Carolina garrison of the 501st Stormtrooper Legion.
I had a great time taking his picture with other cosplayers and watching people take his. There’s more cosplay at the con than there used to be. Seeing all these characters walk around is a lot of fun.
The three of us also had the chance to spend a long weekend in New York. The boy’s interest in architecture led us to some interesting places we’d never visited before. I’d never heard of the High Line, an elevated park on the city’s lower west side that runs along an abandoned rail line. It’s entirely manmade and gorgeous.
Here’s a photo of the park. The boy was also interested in that very modern building to the left of the photo.
I’m making process on Warrior, the next full-length novel in the Light Mage Wars series. Set a few weeks after the end of Guardian, it features archaeologist and martial artist Will Davis. Starting Mr. Flavor of the Week on the road to becoming a one-woman man has been fun so far, though it hasn’t been easy for Will or for me. Or for the one woman, archaeologist Audra Grayson.
The book also includes a look at the couples from Renegade, Protector, and Guardian. The newlyweds, Griffin and Valeria Dare, are off on their honeymoon (in Hawaii, and wouldn’t I just love to do that location research? *g*) when the story starts, but they’ll be back to join in the action.
If all goes well, the book should be a fall release, as planned.
Later this summer, though, Sentinel will be out on more platforms. It’ll start with Nook, Kobo, and iBooks and possibly add others as we go along.
I really love my covers. If you do, too, you can obtain a signed copy by sending me a self-addressed, stamped envelope (legal size – 4 1/8” by 9 1/2“). For instructions, click here. That will take you to the For E-book Readers page. Sentinel cards for Keeper Kases are now available. And just so you know, sending an SASE does not get you on any mailing list.
Thanks for stopping by!
