Good Times

Last weekend I attended the Hallowread in Ellicott City, Maryland.  It was organized by Rachel Rawlings and it was awesome.  HallowRead was a book convention for authors and fans of Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, SteamPunk and Horror genres.  There were tons of authors there.  It.  Was.  Awesome!  

 CJ Ellisson,  Rachel Rawlings , Laura Kay,  JD Brown... the list could go on and on. I also discovered some new authors whose books are now at the top of my ‘To Read’ list on my Kindle.  This year was the first HallowRead and I can’t wait for next year’s convention.  Here is a picture of all the swag I picked up.

Going there and being around such wonderful people has inspired me to submit my work.  I started editing my novel, Bound, and set a goal to read at least 70 pages a week.  Why 70?  ‘Cause I should be able to fit in ten pages a night.  And that’s only if my daughter cooperates.  Even so, 70 pages a week is doable. 

I asked CJ Ellisson about it and she pretty much told me to stop dragging ass and start submitting.  So, that’s what I’m going to do.  I’ll start submitting the end of next month and I have nothing but faith.  And good work.

So, what now?  You can download Hunted by Angels for free, yes FREE, today and then you can follow up with Finding AngelsAnd after you completely fall in love with Perry and Haines leave a comment and like me on my facebook page,  RABoydwriter

I was able to have dinner (yes dinner!) with a few of my favorite authors and some fellow fan buddies.
