It’s a strange, strange world for all of us right now.
I’m not on the front lines in a hospital, grocery store, emergency service, or government crisis center, etc. But I so appreciate and care about all of those who are doing their best to help us through this time and provide accurate information and much-needed resources, and those who are often risking their lives to aid and protect our neighbors and loved ones. God bless.
Like many of you, I’m doing my part by staying home and flattening the curve. I’m writing to you from the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State. I’m safe and well. I have my hubby and best friend here with me. I have a full pantry. I have a dog. I have my computer, pen and paper, and I have about three thousand books.
Still, I feel a bit isolated and I miss–and am worried about–my family and friends — we’re strung across the U.S. and Canada from coast to coast and live across oceans in other countries that are also facing this hardship. But we’re staying in touch through video and phone calls, social media, and shouts from driveway to driveway.
I know many of you are doing okay, but struggling, too. And some of you are facing daily dangers and anxiety. Please take care of yourselves. Try to stay connected in whatever way you can. We’re going to make it through this.
March 30 is the one-year anniversary of the publication of Dragon’s Truth. I’d hoped to celebrate with some special in-person events and an appearance at a local bookfair, but those plans are no longer viable.
Instead, I’d like to send some book love out to the universe.
I’ll be giving away 5 signed copies of Dragon’s Truth (purchased through my favorite indie bookstore, Oblong Books, in preparation for a now-canceled event). To enter, simply click the entry link at the bottom or top of this post, provide your full name and email address (I will only use your address to contact you about this contest and will not share your information with any other entity or person). If you choose to follow me on Twitter, or already do, you’ll be given a second entry.
Since there may be a delay in shipping/receiving physical copies of Dragon’s Truth, I’ll also be sending winners an e-copy for Nook or Kindle (I’ll purchase and send the copies myself – please wait to see if you are a winner before providing a Nook or Kindle address )
Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout my writing journey!
