Dragonholder cover image

Waaayyy back in 1999, Del Rey published Dragonholder: The Life and Dreams (so far) of Anne McCaffrey written by me, Todd McCaffrey. It was a marvelous scrapbook idea and quickly sold out.

The rights have reverted to me and I’ve spent the past two weeks carefully converting it to eBook format.  It’s now available in NookKindle, and trade paperback formats.

Wow, well I never thought it would happen!

Apparently Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum novel, One for the Money is actually being made into a film.

I’m curious to see how they handled it.

If you’ve never been to a Dragon*con before you should really consider going, particularly to visit the awesome Anne McCaffrey’s Worlds (aka: Weyrfest) which is usually housed at the bottom of the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

If you want a foretaste, you might consider checking out Weyrfest on Facebook.
