Taking My Life Off the Shelf

I’ve been pretty quiet on my blog over the summer, and that’s because I’ve been working hard, hard, hard on helping to get my two Fall releases ready. As I’ve announced before, “A Love by Any Measure” is due to hit the shelves November 8. I’m also pleased to announce that the expanded edition of “12.21.12” will hit e-shelves in October (print copies should be available again in early- to mid-November). So, you might ask, expanded how? Well, I won’t go into specifics, but there’s just a bit of new text here and there that will give you better insight into the sequel as well as “The Twelve-” but more on those things next year. 😉 And in case you’re wondering, no, you will not miss out on anything essential if you bought the first edition, so please don’t worry about trying to compare notes on the two editions. I’ll make sure to post in November about the small differences between the two versions.
In October, I’ll be dragging my YA Fantasy back into my word processor and hacking it all up, just in time to hit the keyboard strokes for NaNoWriMo come November. This year’s project is a thriller/suspense time travel piece. Hopefully I can keep up with the demanding pace! Also, I’m happy to be participating in the San Francisco’s LitQuake! on October 15, along with several of my colleagues. If you happen to be in the Bay Area that weekend, check out all the events and stop in on a few readings.
And speaking of dragging things off the shelf, I couldn’t help but look at my bookshelf this evening and wonder over it. Mind you, there’s still plenty of books in boxes in the garage following the move. I thoughts some of you’d like to have a peak in at my shelves, and remember what it was like when you were still able to see the back walls of yours:

Your two cents appreciated:
