It’s been a while since I last put up a post; I hope all is well with each of you!
Sadly, due to ongoing events across the planet, my planned tours and book-signings remain cancelled. Bookstores just aren’t holding such events at this time, and so far, there’s been no news as to when I might be able to start back up. I miss being out there seeing you, and hope to resume in the near future.
On a positive note, an interesting and fun new project grew out of the current situation: I put together a brief video that will be part of a “virtual trade show”! The show was originally meant to take place in Denver, but that didn't work out, so they decided to hold it all online. It will be held June 26 through 28.
Now, normally such shows are only for people in a particular industry, but not open to the general public. However, through the magic of the internet, you can follow this link to come visit my "virtual booth"—whenever you like, and from wherever you happen to be.
I’m hoping to take part in one or two more such events over the next few months, too. Check back here on the blog (or on the Dragons of Nibiru Facebook page) for details, as they become available. These events are nowhere near as exciting as meeting my readers and soon-to-be readers in person, but they’re far, far better than no contact at all!
Making my trade-show "virtual booth" marks the first time I’ve created a video. The learning curve was quite steep, since I only had one day to complete the project, start to finish. Whew! Talk about short notice! I learnt a lot from my mistakes, though, and it actually was good fun overall.
As you may have heard, Book III of the Dragons of Nibiru series, entitled Dragons of Remini, will be heading to print soon. The artwork has not been finalized though, so there’s still time to submit drawings for possible inclusion in the book—as described in an earlier blog post. You can email them directly: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if you have a dragon friend, fly them to my home and hand them over in person! Your dragon will know the way.
One more bit of good news before I go: both The Dragons of Nibiru and Dragons of Earth are becoming available in more and more bookstores across the U.S.! Soon to be joined by Dragons of Remini—and the rest of the series, too. That’s right, my U.S. friends—Celine and Fianna are coming to your town.
Take care and stay safe,
Lorna J. Carleton
