It has been unforgivably long since I last made a blog post, so allow me to hang my head in shame.  Especially as this year is shaping up to be one of the busiest on record!  I just finished a major editing project and am about to finish an outline for a new book.  By the end of this month I’ll (I hope) have written a new short story and be well into the aforementioned new book.

Can I talk about any of these things?

Not yet.  But!  I am excited to appear in Memphis, TN next weekend for my Guest of Honor appearance at MidSouthCon! I have attended before, and it’s a very friendly convention with an awful lot of fun things going on.  I’ll be on a ton of panels (see below) and doing books signings throughout.  Feel free to bring your own copies to get a signature and personalization, or I will be selling a variety of titles at the con if you forget/see something you like!

Here’s the skinny:

From the convention website:  “MidSouthCon 34 will be held at the East Memphis Hilton on March 18 – 20th, 2016. We have a great lineup of guests this year, with all kinds of events, panels, and entertainment for your enjoyment! With over 200 hours of programming, we will probably have a discussion or workshop that will interest you. Gamers – as usual we will have gaming of all sorts – Board, Card, RPG, LARP, and more!

Convention Membership online Registration has closed. You can register at the door for $55 for the whole weekend. Day rates are avaialbe. Just ask at the door or e-mail registration@midsouthcon.org.

Star Wars Book # 2913-B

From my website:

“After a thousand-mile journey, Our Writer Heroine has reached her new home!  But things are missing…where are the scissors?  The cat’s medication?  That really yummy thing she saved to treat herself to when she arrived?

And the Ball (okay, SDCC) was not far away…and the deadline loomed.  Yet she had promised…she had promised…and she keeps her promises.”

Yep, despite the chaos of moving, the shop is OPEN FOR BUSINESS!  With a few caveats:

*Yes, things are crazy, so bear with me as I rediscover what boxes hold what books, and where the heck I put my mailing envelopes.

*Star Wars: Dark Disciple is NOT going to be shipped until the publication date of 7/7/14 (I’d get in big trouble otherwise). If you really must read it the day it is released (and I love you for that), please order online at a site which will make sure it arrives on the 7th or reserve a copy at your local bookstore.  Also, it may time for the books to arrive to me, as they don’t ship to me until pub date, either!  So I appreciate your patience.

*All this being said, I do still have other books for sale, and through the fall will be re-ramping as I get more in stock.

*Please remember, this is a side business for me, and honoring my writing commitments must always come first.  I thank you in advance for your patience with me!

My readers are the best.  Welcome back!

I’m SO excited to be back at SDCC!  This time I truly feel like the belle of the ball, as I have several signings/appearances with several IPs.  Chances are, if you’re reading this, you’ll find something to interest you!

Also, check back for updates, I’ll post booth numbers and any changes here when I have them!  Cannot wait to meet and say “thank you” to some of the best people on the planet–my loyal readers.❤

Star Wars Book # TK

 

As Star Trek taught us, all good things must come to an end.  My path is leading me away from the Music City area to the Lone Star State, and books are heavy (and expensive) to move.

Everything on the store…including the rare Collector’s Edition of ARTHAS: RISE OF THE LICH KING, is half-price.  I’ve only just started selling foreign language editions on my site, so if you read Italian, Korean, German, or some other languages, you’re in luck.

Simply go to store.christiegolden.com and enter the code LONESTAR50 at checkout.

Please help with my moving hassle and help yourself to a fantastic deal on signed and personalized novels! Sale runs through May 5.

And…go!

Wow…I can’t believe it’s almost time for Star Wars Celebration!

I’ve gotten to know the Anaheim Convention Center pretty well over the last few years, thanks to it being the regular site of Blizzcon. It will be cool to be there with my Star Wars author hat on.  I’m very excited about “Dark Disciple,” which comes out on July 7, and I’m told there will be lots of announcements at the convention!

I love cons because it’s a chance to meet my readers and personally thank you for your support of my work. Bear in mind that I’m on a schedule of interviews and meetings that aren’t listed here, and I also need to make sure I’m properly fed and watered! So if I say “I’m so sorry, I can’t stop to chat now,” that’s why, and I hope you forgive me. Otherwise, feel free to come up and say hello.  I’d love to meet you.

Here’s where you can find me!

DISCLAIMER: Yes, I know that the listings for April 16 and April 17 have insufficient spaces between them. I can’t seem to change that.  ><  Darn technology…
