Comicpalooza 2014



Comicpalooza in 2014 was the biggest and best yet. Thousands of people. Great costumes.

 I had fun on panels with Rachel Caine, Martha Wells, DL Young and others.  I got to meet Southern Witch fans who were funny and charming. (SW readers are the best! Thank you for coming out!)

Cary Elwes was hilarious and handsome in person. So glad we made it to see him.

It was also fun to listen to an author friend's wild stories. Safe travels home, Mario!

I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend wherever you were. Next year I hope to see you in Houston for Comicpalooza 2015

Kimber Sightings Part II: Comicpalooza!!


Did you know that Stan Lee (OMG...major moment to Marvel over) and I will be at Comicpalooza this year? So will Cary Elwes (Princess Bride, Men in Tights, Psych!) And Rachel Caine! And Mario Acevedo! And many, many cool peeps.

That means your Memorial Day Weekend plans should really include a trip to the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Kimber Sigthings : Part I


 I am not as rarely sighted as a dusky seaside sparrow--that's a little inside joke for Southern Witch readers who are caught up on the latest in the series. Have you read your copy of Slightly Spellbound yet?--but I'm not spotted around town that often. 

So when I visit places in person, I try to share the news & the pics. I know that you really want to see proof that I exist. ;)

These photographs were taken at my favorite bookstore, Murder by the Book. Like me, it can be found residing in Houston. I've signed there seven times since becoming published, and every time has been a blast! They have so many loyal customers, which isn't a surprise since the staff has a great eye for new talent!

As a reader I've been to fantastic MBB events. Jasper Fforde, Alexander McCall Smith, and Charlaine Harris are all so funny and charming in person, you would not believe it. Or you might, if you've read their books. ;)

Book Signing...TONIGHT!


Books are magical. I love them and if you're here, so do you. :) One place that books live before someone great brings them home is on the shelves of fantastic independent bookstores like Murder by the Book in Houston. It is, without a doubt, one of the greatest bookstores in the known universe.

If you can get to Houston by 6:30 pm tonight, we can meet there. I will be talking about my Southern Witch series and about whatever else comes up...movies, mysteries, awesome possums.

So jump in your car or your Tardis and come visit. You'll have fun. Promise!

Kissing the Suspect Release!

Chapter 1 Callie Melville was wanted by the law, but to put it that way made things sound worse than they were. She hoped. The rumors...
