MARCH MADNESS—Announcing the ORLEANS Blog Tour!

Folks, it's time for March Madness, YA-style. 

Last week I promised you details on the official 2013 ORLEANS Blog Tour.  I am delighted to announce the line up, as well as a few other fun events to celebrate the launch of my first speculative/SF novel, ORLEANS!  Mark your calendars-- it's going to be a blast!


An ORLEANS short story to whet your appetite.  "Carnivale" takes place approximately nine months before the events in the novel.
