What a weekend!

Monday, May 5th 2014 • Books, Miyuki

What a great weekend! I had a blast with Black Hill Press and Mysterious Galaxy for California Bookstore Day. I was able to chat with some amazing authors and readers. It’s one of my favorite parts of being a writer!

Happy California Bookstore Day 2014!

Also, don’t forget that Black Hill Press put together a fantastic anthology in The Cost of Paper. In it, you’ll find my brand new short story about Mara and Miles. If you missed out, don’t worry. You can still head on over here to purchase it and the other stories in The Cost of Paper on Amazon. You also can get a digital copy for FREE from Black Hill Press’s website. Now, it’s time for me to get back to writing. Thank you everyone! Veronica

California Bookstore Day!

Wednesday, April 30th 2014 • Books, Miyuki

Are you unbelievably excited for California Bookstore Day? I am! Here are a few reasons why you should be getting ready for May 3.

Black Hill Press is releasing an anthology full of familiar faces, including Miles and Mara! That’s right! If you’re still wringing your hands after that ending in Miyuki and want to spend some extra time with Miles and Mara, you’re going to want to get your hand on The Cost of Paper. This special anthology features work by some fabulous Black Hill Press authors and artists, and a short story of mine called “Recycled” is included. Grab your copy at your participating local California bookstore, or head on over here to purchase it on Amazon. You also can get a digital copy for FREE from Black Hill Press’s website. So, what are you waiting for? Get reading!

I’m participating in Mysterious Galaxy’s Local Author Meet and Greet! I will be signing copies of Miyuki at this event in Redondo Beach. Come by and say hello!

Excited yet? I certainly hope so! While you wait, here’s a sneak peek of “Recycled” From The Cost of Paper.


Until next time,


Stop! Panel Time!

Wednesday, April 16th 2014 • Black Hill Press, Books, Miyuki

I had an amazing time this weekend as a panel member for Chapman University’s discussion on the author’s responsibility in the 21st century. For those of you that don’t know, I attended Chapman as an undergraduate and am absolutely in love with my alma mater. Anytime that I can visit Chapman is a day well spent!


As soon as I arrived at the good ol’ Leatherby Library, I wandered around with fellow author, Kate St. Clair. She can vouch that I shrieked a bit when I found Mara in the library. Look at it! It’s so beautiful with its library binding!

We answered lots of amazing questions from Creative Writing students, and the panel discussion was recorded for Black Hill Press’s podcast “The How and the Why” (check it out here). Give it a listen!

If you couldn’t make this awesome event, have no fear. There are more coming up in May that I am very excited about. I’ll keep you posted!

Until then, don’t forget to let me know what you thought of Miyuki. I’d love to hear from you all.


With gratitude and unusual-ness,

Happy Book Release Day for MIYUKI!
