Curious Stuff Indeed

As I’m slogging down the hallway to the end of this book, I sometimes take some time out to breathe my brain out. Okay I do this in every book, not going to lie.

One of the sites I tend to hit up every other day or so is ListVerse. I love the tidbits of weird and lists are often a fantastic thing. I have no idea why. Just roll with it. I’m easily amused if someone tosses trivia at me.

So, I encourage you to head to ListVerse and see what’s there. I often fall down the rabbit hole…which is a horrible thing I avoid doing while writing. Horrible. *nods* (In case my editor is reading this)

Answering Questions about Salon du Livre and Book Signing

Salon du Livre Information Regarding Dreamspinner Press Inventory and Bringing Books To Be Signed. (As of 6 Jan 2017)
1. In February, Dreamspinner Press will be doing a preorder sale for delivery in Paris (as done in the past for GRL) so people can place orders at that time for any books they absolutely must have. The sale will apply to all paperbacks regardless of language. Other than those orders, all books brought in specifically for Salon du Livre will only be in French. So, if you are attending the Salon du Livre and wish to purchase books to be picked up at the event, please watch for the sale.
2. The event HAS allowed people bring books to be signed in the past, so unless the policy has changed, that shouldn’t be a problem BUT Dreamspinner Press will reach out to clarify if there has been any changes.
Currently as DSP knows, if you are bringing in books you already own, you can show them at the door and have them marked as already purchased and bring them in.
Once again, I will be signing from 12-2 on Saturday, 25 March 2017, along with TA Moore. Charlie Cochet and others will also be attending the event. Once I get the full signing schedule I will share it. I believe Charlie Cochet is later on that afternoon.

Hawaiian Humane Society Cheers On Their Last Adoptee

*hands you tissues before the video starts*

How the Hawaiian Humane Society said farewell to the last dog adopted out in their “Clear The Shelter” Drive.

This is a no-kill shelter and every effort is made by the facilities to find every animal a loving and attentive home. Most of my animals come from shelters but I do have a purebred Cairn who was an “Unadoptable”. Yoshi, the black and white cat on my avatar, showed up on our rooftop one day and well, moved in ala Dude. I urge all of you who are considering a pet, adopt one from the animal shelter or reach out to a breed rescue. There are thousands of really good, sweet souls out there who need a good home.

And as always, help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered.

Rhys Ford at Paris Book Fair • Salon Du Livre on 25 March from 12 to 2 pm. Also London on 22 March!

logo-livre_parisIf you are able to, come see me in Paris Book Fair on Saturday, March 25 from 12 to 2 pm. I will be signing whatever people put in front of me that hopefully has my name on it. *grins* I will be joined by TA Moore. Charlie Cochet will be signing her books a little bit later that afternoon. I will share the full signing schedule once I have it.
If you can’t make Paris (although I hope someone can because God help Paris if Tamm and I left to our own devices while armed with pens), TA Moore and I will be meeting with people for coffee or perhaps dinner on March 22 in London, near the King Cross station. I’ll set up a place and time as we draw closer to the date.

Back to SoCal

So I am back home. It was a lovely time spent with Mary and the Calmes clan. Or at least in my head. Mostly it was a lot of cooking, a lot of writing, some coffee and a few board games. New Year’s Eve was spent on a ten minute bet which I won and was owed Starbucks. I may or may not have taunted the loser and did a happy dance in the kitchen.


So that was the start of my year.

I came home to discover the dog missed me muchly and the cat has just shoved herself against me so tightly I can feel her heartbeat on my skin. It’s rainy and well, the back yard looks like a swamp. It’s that wet and cold outside.

BUT we don’t have snow.

Rounding down the final chapters of Dim Sum Aslyum so that’s kind of nice. I can’t wait to see the cover for it. Soooo excited. After that, well… I’m going to take a good hard look at what I want to write next. Because right now, I’m writing for 3Q 2017. I’m almost finished with 2017’s books. Isn’t that a bit crazy?  But that’s how it goes.

51usz0397dlWhat’s up with all of you? Are you having fun in this first week of the year? I’m going to catch up on Goblin since I’m a couple of episodes behind. I have a few new books to read: Chosen Pride by Mary Calmes and So This is Christmas by Josh Lanyon.

What are you reading? And what are you looking forward to read? Share. Inquiring minds and all of that. *grins*
