Before I start on what was a most excellent weekend at SLCC, there's an epic book launch happening this week (tomorrow, actually) for J. Scott Savage and his new book, Mysteries of Cove: Fires of Invention. 7 PM at Mountain View High School, Oct 1st. There will be a live show of local authors and other awesomeness, and it's FREE! I'll be there.

I'd like to thank everyone who attended and made this Con possible. At long last my area has a comic con that it can be proud of. And it should. I don't know the final numbers yet, but I hear it's rivaling San Diego in numbers. I'm already having withdrawals. That means I'll look forward to the next one with great interest. Until next year!

How's the self-pub zombie book coming? Better than I first imagined, actually. Still waiting on edits but the cover is close to finishing up, and it's a cover I'm proud of. Not sure when the reveal will be, but I'll be sure to let you know. A late January release in 2016 is happening. It's been an adventure finding the balance between what to self-pub and what to submit traditionally. I'll get more into that in next week's IWSG post. Until then, keep writing like there's no tomorrow.
Who's excited for the Mysteries of Cove? Which costume was your favorite? If you're part of IWSG, what's your topic for next week?
I'm David, and "I don't say blaah blah blaaah!"
