I’ve got some challenging deadlines writing both the Safeguard series (mercenaries, explosive action, strong heroines) and the True Heroes series (hot military heroes, the women who love them, and the dogs that always have their backs). The time management involved can be intimidating.
Because I decided the Erin Condren Life Planner helped me organize my writerly life so much, I wanted to share the organization fun (really, it can be!). So to celebrate this Independence Day weekend (Happy 4th of July!) I’ve decided to give away an EC Rose Gold LIMITED EDITION 18-month life planner to one winner (open to Residents of the US only this time).
It’ll be enough to get you started in planner fun right away in July 2015 and take you right to the end of 2016.
RT Book Lover’s Convention is huge and one of the events I attend as both my alter-identities. It get’s pretty confusing sometimes, but I answer to both Piper and PJ and love to meet readers of any of my books, no matter what name they call me by. 😀
This is the most involved I’ve ever been in this convention and I’m looking forward to all the opportunities to meet readers. I’ve been told I’m so energetic that it can be a bit intimidating…please don’t let this stop you. I very much love to say Hi and look forward to meeting new people!
This convention orientation is designed for all first-time RT attendees. We’ll give you the “quickie” seminar experience. Trust us: if this is your first-ever RT Booklovers Convention, this could be the most important 60 minutes of your week! After you head to registration, get your bag of goodies and experience the initial shock and awe, you’re going to have questions. That’s where we come in. Come join us for an hour that, for some, has been a life-altering experience. We understand what it’s like — your virgin year at RT! Here is where you get your questions answered, meet other first-timers and become part of a special group like no other during convention week.
Singing starships, pouting planets and alien languages that consist only of punctuation … When is the strange just too strange even for science fiction? Can an author’s love for all things alien alienate the reader? Come explore the weird, the wacky and the why not with this panel of top SF authors!
Horror is making a come back in literature and TV. Why do we love to scare, and to be scared? What’s the difference between horror, dark paranormal and urban fantasy? Join authors of YA, romance and historical fiction as they discuss the appeal of this creepy genre, and why it’s becoming more and more popular with women writers and readers alike.
Come play with us! Forever Romance is throwing a Wild West carnival that features classic games with a romance twist. Don’t miss your chance to mingle with authors, win fun prizes, and enter our epic raffle to win a full year’s worth of books!
Join popular & bestselling authors as we explore how we build the tension, draw out the suspense and let the action loose in the stories we love. We’ll share behind-the-scenes research, have fun with TV/movie clips that inspired us and answer questions from the audience!
Attention starship crew! Charge your blasters and get ready to repel the invasion of the dastardly alien space ducks as we drink, snack and indulge in sci-fi silliness at RT’s only sci-fi party. Win prizes! The first 200 crew members to report for duty get goody bags loaded with swag. Brought to you by Captain Linnea Sinclair and her trusty space commando authors: Cathy Clamp, KM Fawcett, Pauline Baird Jones, Stacey Kade, Monette Michaels, Janet Miller, M.D. Waters, First Officer PJ Schnyder and more!

Whew! It’s been a while. I had some serious deadlines taking priority and unfortunately, other things got put on hold. But I’ve turned in my latest manuscript and plan to clear my head by working on the next #EMEPiper podcast and a few Piper Note videos.
Check in over the coming weeks too, because there’s a couple of fun things to share coming down the pipeline. 😉
