where I will BEA this friday!

AASIf you’re at Book Expo America (BEA) in Chicago this week, come to my autographing on Friday to get a signed copy of my new book, Against All Silence, courtesy of my overlords, Adaptive Books!

Friday, May 13 — 2:30–3 p.m.
Table 4
Add it to your BEA calendar

You will be among the first people in the world to read this book, which will be published in August! Seriously, this is so brand new, I don’t even have copies of it yet! I really really really really hope you like it. I also hear there will be some special, limited-edition giveaways at this event, but I’m not sure if I should say more than that. ;)

If you aren’t at BEA or you miss me there, I will also be crashing the Mass Autographing Session at the SFWA Nebula Weekend at Palmer House on Friday the 13th, from 8 p.m. on. I’ll be happy to sign anything (anything!) if you corner me, but you’ll have to bring your own books!

see me at Boskone!

This weekend I will be attending Boskone 53 in Boston, from Friday, Feb. 19 through Sunday, Feb. 21! If you will be there too, my schedule is below. Please stop by and say hi! I’m happy to sign any of my books any time you can catch me at an event, the bar, or wandering around :)

Stories Within Video Games
Friday 3:00 – 3:50 p.m., Harbor II (Westin)
We’ve advanced far beyond the days of Frogger and Tetris. Today’s video games take us into highly evolved worlds with complex characters and storylines. How does the development of the story drive the game? Is “story” ever a distraction from “gameplay?” How does the story within the game shape the characters, sharpen the game’s challenges, and heighten the player’s experience?

Hillary Monahan, Matt London, E.C. Myers, Brianna Spacekat Wu, E. Lily Yu

Saturday 2:00 – 2:50 p.m., Marina 4 (Westin)
What skills do you need to write young adult or children’s fiction? What should you know? What should you avoid? Join our panelists for an interactive discussion/writing session — and be sure to bring your pen and paper!

E.C. Myers, Ken Altabef, Cerece Rennie Murphy

Saturday 3:00 – 3:50 p.m., Galleria-Autographing (Westin)

Superhero Open Mic
Saturday 9:00 – 10:20 p.m., Marina 1 (Westin)

Kapow! Live from Boskone … enjoy the knock-out stylings of our program participants and audience members who share their open mic skills in the first-ever Superhero Open Mic. Each person gives his/her best 5-minute superhero performance – story, poem, song, skit, interpretive dance, or whatever! OPTIONAL: For extra appeal, feel free to come dressed as a superhero!

The Rules: Boskone members are invited to join our participants in the open mic by signing up for one of the eight open slots at the door to the event, which opens for sign-ups at 8:30 pm. Each performer is given a firm 5-minute time limit (max), including set-up time. So a quick transition between acts is key.

SOS — Kindle January Deal!

Good news, everyone! Amazon.com has selected The Silence of Six as a Kindle Deal for January, which means you can purchase the eBook all month for only $1.99!

SOS_Kindle

Yes, you can have my thoughts for only 199 pennies, less than 6.42 pennies a day!

There’s no better time to read The Silence of Six if it’s on your list, what with the sequel coming out soon — currently scheduled for July 19, 2016 from Adaptive. (These reviewers really liked it.) And if you’re like me and don’t love cliffhangers, don’t worry, the first book stands alone, with Max off on a new adventure in Against All Silence. (You can still enter a contest at YABC to win an early copy, until 1/9.)

And if it isn’t too greedy, I have one more small request: If you read The Silence of Six, especially if you grab it now on the cheap, please consider rating and reviewing it on Amazon? I’d like them to see that highlighting my book was a good decision!

Thank you!

Stay frosty,
Signature_Eugene
