It's MAY! May! What a month! May the fourth...oh, you know...'s May.  Busy month, May is!

With the end of the semester looming, I'm preoccupied (in other words, crazed and sleep-deprived), but here are the three big author highlights for me this May:

Brenda Novak's Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research 

I've been a fan of Brenda Novak's most excellent auction long before I became an author. It includes all sorts of amazing auction items, including once-in-a-lifetime trips, lunch with bestselling authors, critiques from agents and authors, autographed books, and much more. The auction runs through the month of May! It's a wonderful auction for a good cause, and this year, I'm part of two auctions!

ALWAYS A STRANGER - release date: May 15, 2014

That second auction item up there, the Japanese Delights gift pack, coincides with the release of ALWAYS A STRANGER, which features a half-Japanese heroine. It turns out that you can already order it as a trade paperback (POD), but the official release date of the ebook is May 15th. You can preorder at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes and other e-booksellers.

Virtual Book Tour - May 26 to June 6

Thanks to Tasty Book Tours, I'll be doing an online book tour for ALWAYS A STRANGER, featuring exclusive excerpts, interviews, guest posts, and a tour-wide giveaway. I look forward to "seeing" you at various tour sites! Check out my Appearances page for the schedule!

Happy May!
