Armageddon was a blast!
Armageddon was a blast! Three days of wing flapping, crazy cosplay, weird storm troopers stalking me with menacing glares (Chewbacca was away in Christchurch, sadly) and keen readers popping by to say hi. Three days of talking non-stop (which wouldn’t surprise my friends — I love meeting new people). Three days of telling people about Riders of Fire and Quest, book 1 in the Sylvalla Chronicles. Three days of A.J. Ponder and I hanging out together!
We were so busy, I almost missed the email telling me Ezaara, Riders of Fire book 1, was a finalist in the 2019 Sir Julius Vogel Awards. Almost, but not quite. My friends and readers are way too savvy for that. As I was heading home late, with sore feet (after days of standing on concrete floors), my phone pinged! Yes, I’d been tagged. Thanks for nominating Ezaara, and then letting me know!
Armageddon – Dragon Rift Launch
Dragon Rift, book 3 in my Riders of Fire series, launched at Armageddon. This time, there was no archery or sword fighting. Copies of the book slipped off the counter into happy readers’ bags as we chatted and enjoyed the variety of crazy characters parading past. Did I mention that I was wearing dragon wings? Oh, and that I had an extra set for people to try on?
Games of Thrones at Armageddon
I didn’t actually sit on the throne. It doesn’t look that comfy!
Dragons Galore – Armageddon time!
Ash, one of my cool teen beta readers, popped by. She loves Riders of Fire and helped me brainstorm some tricky parts of my free prequel novelette, Bronze Dragon! A valuable team member.
Deb, a kiwi reader, popped by to say hi! “You won’t know me,” she said, “But I subscribe to your Riders of Fire newsletter.”
Mixed genres here, but they swear they’re friends!
Winner – Armageddon Fantasy Prize Pack!
The winner of our fantasy prize pack was Andrew Hodgkin. Andrew, we hope you enjoy your books!
Phew, this blog post has taken awhile. And to make things worse, I accidentally deleted the version I put up a few days ago, so I had to do it all again! Yes, it’s 5 weeks since Armageddon, but better late than never!
