Places to Catch Me this Fall

Hello, all!  Just wanted to update you on my upcoming events schedule.

Saturday, October 20th, I’ll be at Fayetteville Barnes & Noble (Northwest Village Shopping Center, 4144 N College Ave, Fayetteville AR) for an all-day Bookfair event to help promote the True Lit festival!  (http://www.truelitfest.com/)  True Lit takes place this year from October 28th through November 4th, and encourages reading, writing, and storytelling across Fayetteville.  I’ll also have a signing from 1:00 to 4:00pm.

Keep an eye on my website for more True Lit related appearances.

Wednesday, October 24th, join me at Left Bank Books ( 399 North Euclid Ave. St. Louis, MO), 7:00pm, as part of the bookstore’s SF STL author-event series (https://www.left-bank.com/sfstl)!  I’ll be discussing Noumenon and Noumenon Infinity, and will have an open chat about speculative fiction with fellow author Thomas K. Carpenter (http://thomaskcarpenter.com/).

NOTE: The event is free, but Left Bank Books does require you to buy a copy of one of my books from their store to get in the signing line.  You can preorder directly from the bookstore here: https://www.left-bank.com/ (If you already have Noumenon + Infinity, perhaps purchase one as a gift, bring a friend who hasn’t bought the book yet, or request a copy of Aliens: Bug Hunt)

Saturday, November 3rd, Fayetteville Public Library (401 W Mountain St, Fayetteville, AR), 2:00-3:00pm.  I’ll be teaching a one-hour workshop on how to query a novel.  This is a condensed version of my typical two-hour workshop. Attendees will learn the basics of querying, including: what a query is, who it is for, how to write one, and how to send it.  Participants should have either a completed novel manuscript, or a partially completed (but thoroughly outlined) manuscript in order to fully participate in the class.  No need to bring the manuscript to the workshop (unless you’d like it for your own reference), just your intimate knowledge of the plot and characters.  Please contact the Fayetteville Public Library if you are interested in participating. https://www.faylib.org/

Happy reading, hope to see you soon!

International Readers, Are You Ready for a Giveaway???

International giveaway 1 small

I have brand-new UK paperback copies of Noumenon burning a hole in my bookshelf, and brand-new bookplates, and brand-new stickers, and of course bookmarks!

Would you perhaps like a few of these things?

I have two sets of these to give away, and I will mail them anywhere outside of the United States. All you have to do to enter is ONE of the following between July 4th and July 12th (If you’d like to do more, that’s awesome! But each person will only be entered one time.):

*Sign up as a new recipient for my newsletter and let me know you’ve done so in the comments on this post.

*Tweet about Noumenon or Noumenon Infinity (perhaps why you’re looking forward to a copy, or a favorite quote) and make sure you .@ me (.@MarinaLostetter).

*Retweet this tweet with a comment.

*Post about Noumenon or Noumenon Infinity on Instagram and @ me (@MarinaJLostetter).

*If you’ve read Noumenon or any of my work, leave a new review on said work at Goodreads, or Amazon, or Barnes & Noble, or your preferred book-purchasing online venue and link me the review in the comments on this post.

On July 13th I will draw two random winners in the same manner I drew winners for my previous giveaway. Then I will contact the winners with a way to privately send me your address.

Good luck, and happy reading!

P.S. US readers, though you aren’t eligible for this giveaway, signal boosts are always appreciated.

Book Signing 7/13/13!

Writers of the Future Vol. 29 is out!  And I will be signing copies from 2:00-4:00pm this Saturday (the 13th) at the Barnes & Noble on N. College Ave. in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  

If you are in the area I hope to see you there. You can ask me about the contest, about writing, about science fiction–about basically anything you’d like. Or you can just get a crisp new book and a neat-o signature if you’re not up for chatting. Either way, I’ll appreciate you stopping by!
