I had a fabulous time yesterday in Albany at the Flights of Fantasy bookstore doing my first "real" book signing as a novelist (other than small things around my own area). As a bonus, I got to see my sister Sarah (and fab brother in-law Rich) who live near there, and check out the Barnes & Noble, which only had one copy of the book left

|I shared the signing with a fab SF/Fantasy author named Ryk Spoor|
|Got to see a longtime fan, Josephine F.|
|As well as the radiant Rebecca Elson of The Magical Buffet, who brought me goodies!|
|And got a surprise visit from a formal local and Blue Moon Circle regular, Lauren, which made my day!|
First of all, I have a fun, FREE Baba Yaga short story for you! The lovely folks at Literary Escapism do a cool thing where they ask various authors to write a short short story about their protagonists going holiday shopping. Of course, since Beka is a witch, she goes Yule shopping, and needless to say, it isn't all that simple. I hope you enjoy this story, since I had a lot of fun writing it.
And, of course, I had to do one last big, blowout giveaway! I can't express how much I appreciate everyone's support--buying the books, and posting reviews, and spreading the word. But maybe this will help.
|It's a GIANT GIVEAWAY!|

So THANK YOU, so much for being such a great cheering section, and good luck to you all!
(USA only, due to the weight of all that booty, but if you are out of the country, you are welcome to enter and I will send you a modified prize pack.)
