Barbados Trip 2013, Wedding Recital.

Hello, Everyone,

My recent trip to Barbados wasn't all about writing my current novel, meeting fans, and making new ones. My cousin also got married to her boyfriend of 15 years. And as a gift, I played my violin for them during the ceremony. It was so hot that the fans in the church were blowing at full blast. And although it was cool inside the church, the noise from the fans made it difficult for me to hear myself, let alone the organist who accompanied me, but I still got through.

Animekon 2013, Barbados.

Hello, everyone,

I've been very busy these past few months, multitasking between writing and editing. But I was invited to play my violin at my cousin's wedding in Barbados on August 31. Of course I couldn't refuse. But before flying there, my buddy and NYT Bestselling Author, Eric Jerome Dickey, introduced me to his friend, Erica Hinkson of Book Source. Ms Hinkson was kind enough to invite me to participate in an annual pop culture event called Animekon, which is similar to Comic-Con. Book Source not only sponsored Animekon, but also had their own lounge where local and international authors could showcase their books. I thought that I'd share some of these pictures with you. I had taken several other pictures, especially with those who purchased copies of Pandora's Succession and of Chill Run. Unfortunately my Android Smartphone went haywire and several pictures were deleted. But I managed to save most of them. I'll follow up with other news about my stay in Barbados next week.
