Upcoming Events: September!

I've been taking the summer a bit off--between finishing up a new book (have you noticed the addition to this website yet?), relaxing with family, working on a reddit forum for authors, and finishing some other projects...well, I was supposed to be taking the summer a bit off :)

Anyway, back into the saddle! This fall I've got some events coming up that I hope I'll be able to see you at!
