Baltimore Book Fair

This past weekend I attended the Baltimore Book Fair as part of the Maryland Romance Writers and I had a lot of fun.  I talked with some amazing authors, including Carrie Ann Ryan, Ginger Sharp, Jennifer Armentrout, and Laura Kaye, met some new readers which is always awesome, and took part in a number of panels including diversity, romantic suspense, and young adult.  I also did a new word of the while I was there, with Federal Hill in the background.  (If you watch look for the flag.  It took me a few seconds to get what was different.  It has 15 … Continued

A New Place to Follow Me

Last night I went to a wonderful program at the Maryland Romance Writers.  They had a speaker who talked about social media.  It was really wonderful and as a result of that talk, I have been opened up to the wonderful world of Instagram and I am expanding my use of Pinterest.  I love that both of these social media sites are picture based because I’m a visual kind of guy. On Pinterest I am Andrew Grey And on Instagram I am andrewgreybooks. In both places you will see my usual smiling face, so you’ll know if you found the … Continued

Release Day

I’m going let you all in on a little secret.  I have had over 100 release days in my career.  The exact number is hard to count, but there have been a lot.  And I still get as nervous and anxious with each one as I did with my very first release.  Each time I hope readers will like it what I wrote.  I put a lot of myself in each story and I want the reader to love it because liking my work is in a way liking me.  I know that may sound a little strange, but it’s … Continued

Andrew and Dirk’s Word of the Day

I was in the mood for another word of the day.  I really hope you like this one.  I thought it was rather cute.  Dominic left on Thursday to visit  his family and I’ve been home alone.  I’m realizing I don’t do home alone very well.    Enjoy!

My Muse

I thought I would share this with all of you.  A few years ago my sister went to a psychic reader with a friend.  She had some questions that she wanted answers to.  At some point during the reading, it was mentioned that she had two brothers.  The psychic told my sister that her oldest brother was very creative and that he was a writer, which startled my sister a little because she hadn’t said anything about us.  Then my sister told me that the psychic grinned and became quite excited.  She told my sister that I was blessed and … Continued

My Conference Odyssey – Close to the End

Hello from wonderful, energetic New York City.  I am nearing the end of my three week conference odyssey that started about three weeks ago in Munich.  I am at the RWA National Conference.  The previous conferences in Munich and Tampa were reader conventions.  This one is most definitely centered on craft.  I have met some amazing authors. I set next to Amelia Grey and near Patience Griffith at the literacy signing.  I got a signed book for my mother form Robyn Carr.  I have attended workshops on building sexual tension and writing Killer Romantic Suspense.  It’s been really awesome.  I’ve … Continued

The Convention Odyssey

I have been traveling for most of the week.  On Monday I was in Philadelphia staying with friends.  Tuesday I caught my flight to Munich and landed on Wednesday and spent much of the day and night dealing with jet lag.  Thursday I had arranged a tour of the castles Linderhoff and Neuschwanstein.  They were beautiful.  I have seen both of them before, but it was even better this time. The tickets were timed so there was no waiting in tons of lines.  I was with Elizabeth and Lynn from Dreamspinner.  There are some things you have to know.  The … Continued

I’m On My Way

Happy Monday.  Today I am starting the convention part of my month.  This particular July is going to be hectic beyond belief.  However its also a great month if you’d like to meet me.  I am currently starting my trek which will end in Munich for Euro Pride Con this weekend.  If you’re in the area, we will be taking part in the Munich Pride parade and I believe the signing is open to the public.
