It’s been an incredibly busy month following the release of Star Wars: A New Dawn and leading up to the debut of the Rebels TV series this past weekend. I think I’ve been on half the podcasts out there — and there’s been a whirlwind of interviews. And the response has been gratifying — there were a passel of very nice reviews out there. There isn’t time to list them all, but Roqoo Depot has a nice roundup here — with the latest just coming in from the New York Daily News.
The job’s not done, though, as I’ll be promoting this book and others throughout the fall. At New York Comic-Con this weekend, I have several signing slots and a panel:
Thursday, October 9, 6 p.m.: It’s not an official signing slot as I will be coming into town just an hour or so earlier, but if I can make it I’ll be signing at the Random House/Del Rey booth (#2204) after 6.
Friday, October 10, Noon: I’ll be signing at the 47North/Amazon Publishing booth, #860. We’ll be giving away copies of my Overdraft: The Orion Offensive book while supplies last. And whether you’re there or not, the prequel short story is available for Kindle free during the convention!
Friday, October 10, 1-2 p.m.: I’ll be signing at the Random House/Del Rey booth (#2204). While supplies last, we’ll be giving away Advance Reader Editions of A New Dawn.
Saturday, October 11, Noon-1 p.m.: I’ll be signing at the Random House/Del Rey booth (#2204). While supplies last, we’ll be giving away Advance Reader Editions of A New Dawn.
Saturday, October 11, 3:15 p.m.-4 p.m.: I have a New Dawn panel with Del Rey editors Shelly Shapiro and Erich Schoeneweiss, Lucasfilm fiction editor Jennifer Heddle, and Rebels voice actor Vanessa Marshall! This one is in room 1A14, with a signing to follow at Table 19.
Sunday, October 12, 10-11 p.m.: I’ll be signing at the Random House/Del Rey booth (#2204). While supplies last, we’ll be giving away Advance Reader Editions of A New Dawn.
And whether you’re at the convention or not, you can enter a drawing for signed books in the Random House Book Hunt by posting a photo of yourself with one of my books to one of the social media listed on the RHBookHunt rules page, here.
Then after New York Comic-Con, things keep on going with stops in the Midwest and Southeast:
Saturday, October 18, 1-4 p.m.: Signing at Galaxy Comics & Games in downtown Stevens Point, Wis. There’ll also be a Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game event with an adventure module based on an engagement in Star Wars: A New Dawn, written by Nathan Patrick Butler. (Thanks, Nathan!)
Tuesday, November 11, 7 p.m.: Signing at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington, Kentucky. This will be my first Kentucky signing!
Wednesday, November 12, 7 p.m.: Signing at Barnes and Noble’s West Towne location in Knoxville, Tennessee. I’m a UT-Knoxville alumnus and this is my first major bookstore signing in town.
Friday, November 14 through Sunday, November 16: I’m guest of honor at Atomacon in N. Charleston, South Carolina. This is my first time visiting South Carolina!
Friday, November 21 through Sunday, November 23: I’ll be rounding up the fall swing in my hometown with the Memphis Comic and Fantasy Con.
That’s got it! See you somewhere!
