Thunder Con

What a blast this was! The number of people in full costumes was staggering, and it was loaded with munchkin sized folks sporting their own mini-sized costumes. Had a great time talking to people and seeing old friends and posting pix that made my granddaughter yell "Oh Cool"

YAY!!! Samaria Blair & The Secret in the Abbey is now out.
Look for it under the name of Cici Adams, its a mid grade book designed mainly for girls but there are battles to go with the witches and fairies and these wonderful flying Dreki that one must train and fly...brooms come later. 
It was a ton of fun to write and will have a sequel next summer.

I really don't do wait well, how I ever had kids is beyond me. In December I submitted a steampunk version of Beauty and the Beast to a publisher...right now I'm hoping for an email that says "we love it." In the meantime, I have started a kids book, its along the lines of Harry Potter, more aimed at girls, but if a boy wants to read it- that's cool too. I'll be throwing updates out on here and on the Beastly Beauty facebook page.
