Breathers Tattoos

I have to admit, when I wrote Breathers I never expected for it to end up immortalized on the flesh of someone who read the novel. But over the past year, I’ve had a number of people contact me to let me know they’ve had the cover art from the original U.S. edition tattooed somewhere on their bodies. Some of them were kind enough to send along a photo.

Fall Event Schedule – Conventions & Signings

It’s my favorite time of year, when the weather grows cool and the air turns brisk and the trees burn bright with reds and yellows and oranges. Oh yes. And it’s football season.

Of course, it’s perpetually autumn in San Francisco, with cool weather and a brisk breeze. Minus the leaves changing color because everything here either stays green or just turns brown and dies. And as for football season, there are some who would say that what the 49ers play isn’t technically football.

Where were we? Ah yes. Autumn.

With the bloom of summer fading, I have a handful of appearances I’ll be making at upcoming signings and conventions from Seattle to San Diego to Sarasota. And Roseville, but it didn’t fit with the whole sibilant thing going on there.

Below are the relevant dates and times and locations. If you happen to live in the neighborhood or plan to attend one of the conventions, find me and say “hey.” I always enjoy a good “hey.”
