Patty & Dan Dos Santos Attending Dragon Con

Sept 2-6, 2021

May 19, 2021

Whoa, big announcement time! (Sorry, no, it's not another book announcement, LOL - didn't mean to get your hopes up!

Patty and her ultra talented, genius cover artist Daniel Dos Santos have been chatting. We are all fully vaccinated now, and we have all decided to attend DragonCon this year! That may not be quite the announcement you were expecting, but to us, it's huge! Our conversations went something like this:

"There will be people there."
"Yes. Lots of people there."
"Yes. Lots and lots and lots of people there!"
(sounds of cowering)

It's so funny how this last year has changed us! I used to adore big gatherings of people, but now it seems like such A Very Big Deal! 😆 But we can do it! We'll put on our big kid underwear and travel and meet people again! But maybe we'll wear big, dark sunglasses so you can't see our deer-in-headlights expressions, LOL! It's going to be strange and wonderful to see you all in person again!

One little disclaimer, which I probably don't even need to mention, but I will anyway: Patty and Dan won't be doing hugs or selfies with folks. It pains them dreadfully, but we want everyone to stay safe! Hopefully in a few years, this evil virus will be less harmful, but for now we're going to err on the side of caution.

Wow. I can't believe we're going to travel again! This is astounding to me! We are SO looking forward to seeing some of you at DragonCon this September (the 2nd through the 6th) in Atlanta! Hopefully this is the start of our new normal, and we can travel more again next year!

Patty Through the Lens

Appearances in the Time of Covid

Liberty Con

May 15, 2021

Patty did a super fun Skype panel on xeno-archeology for LibertyCon today - all the panelists went to town with their "artifacts" and professorial "credentials," LOL! I laughed so hard! I think the other panelists did not realize Patty could be so evil, and were grateful it had to be family friendly!

Patty Through the Lens

Appearances in the Time of Covid

April 8, 2021

Unfortunately due to large group and travel restrictions Patty's appearances this year have been virtual. With the release of the now NYT Bestselling novel Wild Sign Patty did two online Q&A sessions. The first was with long time collaborator University Book Store in Seattle, WA.

If you missed the live chat, which was on March 17th, you can view it on the University Book Store YouTube Channel. Anne Bishop had a guest appearance! We miss you too Anne!

Just days after that on March 20th Patty had a conversation with author Chelsea Mueller sponsored by another long time collaborator Murder By the Book in Houston, TX.

You can view that on the Murder By the Book YouTube Channel.

Just today Patty participated in a podcast with the Wicked Wallflowers Club to talk about Wild Sign. You can head over to their website and listen to the podcast.

It's been a challenging time when we're used to seeing Patty in person doing her signing tours and con appearances. We all look forward to when in-person appearances can happen again but in the meantime hopefully these will help if you're missing seeing her face or listening to her talk about her characters and books.

April Fools

Broadway Presents: Cur-Tailed, The Musical!

April 1, 2021

Even though we can all agree that a muscial based on the life of Christy would be epic...this is just an April Fools prank from the twisted minds of Patty and Ann. Hope you enjoyed it!

The passion! The danger! The amazing life of Christy Hauptman! "At last, I can tell my whole story," says Ms. Hauptman. "I can't wait to share with my fans everywhere about how I've been so mistreated!"

Set to ear-worming tunes that will haunt you for the rest of your days! As a bonus, there are even some of her original recipes set to music that will have you dancing around your kitchen to create homemade everything - choreography included! "Don't Use Grocery Store Pasta" is sure to be a Top 40 Hit!

A sequel to Flea Bitten, the 2020 runaway best selling novel, Cur-Tailed The Musical continues the fascinating saga of Christy's exciting life, including updates in her lawsuit against the creators of the cruel Facebook memes "Don't be a Christy." In addition to edge-of-your-seat-suspense, the musical will also share important household hints, such as the removal of blue dye from one's skin without drying it out. "Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize" is a catchy ditty that's sure to lift your spirits!

To the great joy of audiences everywhere, Cur-Tailed, The Musical will debut in New York and travel around the world. Offers for a series from HBO, Netflix and Amazon are expected!

Getting a Signed Copy

Seeing Patty on Zoom

February 19, 2021

Patty won't be travelling for book signings in 2021 due to Covid restrictions but she is booked for two Zoom virtual Q&A. Go have a look at Patty's 2021 Appearances Page, both events offer signed copies of Wild Sign but you'll need to contact them for more details.

How can you get a book signed? There are several different options open for you.

For books you already own (earlier books in the series other than a new release or other series) or new releases that you've pre-ordered that don't have the author signing option this would be the best option. You can mail your book/books directly to Patty and she'll sign them for you. How does that work? You mail it to Ann, Patty's assistant here:

Ann Peters
P.O. Box 5394
Benton City, WA 99320

What you'll need to include when you mail your book. Be sure to remember to send it with a prepaid envelope so you can get your book back. For personalization this is Ann's email: Drop her a line and let her know what you'd like for Patty to write in your book. Do you want a coyote drawing? Do you want Patty to say you're her biggest fan? Let Ann know and she'll pass it along. Or tuck a note in your book when you mail it with what you want Patty to write in it.

The Signed Page is for readers who haven't purchased their new release of Wild Sign yet. Head over to their website here. There you'll be able to purchase the book there and say how you'd like to have Patty personalize it for you.

Adventures Underground is also for readers who haven't purchased their new release yet. Head over to their website order guide here. This is a bookstore local to Patty and they also have books other than new releases that you can purchase. Patty will go in masked up and social distanced to sign the books there at a time not open to the public. There's also the option to have your book personalized so be sure to add what you want it to say when you order it.
