This Saturday, May 13, 2017, I will be attending the PBS Ready, Set, Fun Event! Come out. It looks like it will be a lot of fun. I will be there with activities relating to my book, where you will be able to buy one and get it signed. There will also be other activities and authors there as well.
Here is the flyer with all the information you'll need! Check it out, and maybe I'll see you there.
As I'm working on the third book of the Downer series, I thought I would post a sneak "preview" of where the book may be going and what I've been working on. This is only the first draft, so the chapter may change somewhat before I finish. But if you're interested in Chapter One of War of the Reaches (working title), then have a go!
It's been a busy couple of weeks, but that busyness has exploded recently. I've been editing another book of mine called The Cry of Kilhaven, which I wrote several years ago. I am doing one last read through and then it will be completed. Our family, with the help of some friends, has also been remodeling a room in our house. So, of course, the blog posts have been neglected somewhat.
But I've also been busy preparing for an upcoming blog tour that begins on Monday, April 10th.
It is with Xpresso Book Tours. They helped me with Scar of the Downers and did a great job, and now they're helping me with Rise of the Branded.
Each day next week, bloggers will either have an excerpt, an interview, a review, or a blog post I've written. You can go to their websites and read what they've written about the book or read what I've written about writing or myself. You can also enter a giveaway for a chance to win a signed copy of Rise of the Branded.
If you're interested in following the tour, here is the link for it on Xpresso's website.
"What Scott’s Into" as recorded by his wife, Liz.
On many blogs that I read, every so often the blogger will have a “What I’m Into” post. These posts usually highlight fun books the blogger is reading, new products the blogger is (plugging) enjoying, and there’s the requisite philosophically trite thing like rainbows or sunsets to make us think the blogger is cognizant of the esoteric spirit-world or something like that.
So, when Scott started (whining) lamenting about not having an idea for a blog post, I suggested a “What I’m Into” post. Of course he pooh-poohed it, but couldn’t think of anything better, so I asked him to plug in his dead laptop and I told him that I would write one for him.
(This is Scott, I read the "guest" blog my wife wrote and decided that I would add a few comments where they were needed. First of all, I'm reading "Hood" by Stephen Lawhead. I'm also reading Marvel Epic Collection of Thor.)
(Scott again - I was watching Daredevil on Netflix and, since I completed that, I'm watching Luke Cage now. I'm also watching Colony with Liz.)
(It's me again. When she asked the question, I gave a sarcastic answer. Apparently, she didn't pick up on it. Still not sure what she was asking, and I was too lazy last night (I'm writing it this morning) to ask her to clarify.)
Well, I tried my best to make Scott’s blog like the blogs that I read… Did I succeed? Only you can decide. Regardless, he can’t (whine) lament about not having a blog to publish tomorrow morning (that would be today, if you are reading it). Sometimes a wife has to take things into her own hands.
Scott Keen grew up in New York, the youngest of three children. While in law school, he realized he didn't want to be a lawyer. So he did the practical thing--he became a writer.
