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.

Perhaps.

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*
