Book Expo of America Signing!

I recently returned from a session signing advance copies of Curse of the Iris at Book Expo of America, at the Javits Center here in New York.

Some photos:

Here’s two more:

That’s me and the aforementioned Mr. Harwell — he’s the slim one who knows how to smile.

That’s the carpet in BEA’s green room, which is nice but perhaps inaccurately named. It is very trippy, however.

I’ve been working on the third Jupiter Pirates adventure, tentatively entitled Rescue Ships. (It’s somewhere between possible and probable that the book won’t have that name when it hits bookstores.) There’s good news and bad news about that. The good news is I figured out what was bothering me about the story treatment I’d created for Rescue Ships. The bad news is I was correct that something wasn’t right.

In other words, back to work!
