Book Signing and Blog Tour

I had a terrific time at the BYU Life the Universe and Everything Symposium this past weekend. I love getting to spend time with so many writer friends. I always learn so much from the panel discussions. Tracy and Laura Hickman were the special guests. Wonderful. Just wonderful main addresses from them. The conference was especially great since my editor, Stacy Whitman, was there. Here's a picture of us together at my Saturday book signing.

Note, my new hair-do, special for the occasion. My husband took one look at me and asked if I was having a mid-life crisis. LOL (I will not mention what age I'm turning very soon on my birthday). I think the stylist did a terrific job. Now if only I can manage to get my hair to go like that on my own. The odds aren't good.

Well, Brass Dragon Codex has launched and is doing very well. I've got a blog tour going. Here's excerpts and links to the first few blogs. More will follow.

Reviews of Brass Dragon Codex

The Brass Dragon Codex is a truly enjoyable book. It was a fast and friendly read, enjoyable for both me and my son.If you love dragons as much as I do, love a good story with the thrill of adventure, then you'll love R.D. Henham's Brass Dragon Codex. (Ali Cross)

The action goes on and on. And so, too, does the reader's interest. I'd definitely recommend this book to young, fantasy loving readers. (Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen)

In my wanderings through StoryLand, it's far too seldom that I find a book I want to absolutely rave about.This is one of the few! I loved it and I would whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone! (Wendy Elliot)

This was an easy, fun read, which is very understandable, as it is aimed for ages 9-12. Still, part of the reason I read it in one day was it was hard to put down. There was a lot of action and conflicts from so many areas, (Annaliese Lemmon )

. . . it was a very fun book to read. I mean, hey, how can you not like a book with a lovable, free-spirited dragon and a cute little gnome? :o) I'm definitely going to read the rest of the books in this series. (Jewel Adams)

I LOVE your new look Rebecca! You are beautiful!

I have GOT to tell you my exciting news! After seeing his brother read your book and ME read your book, my other son (twin #1), a VERY reluctant reader, has begun reading The Brass Dragon!!!

He's to chapter five even, so he's sticking with it. This has never, ever, happened before. I am thrilled beyond belief.

Thank you SO much for writing THE book that could interest my little boy and get him reading EVEN WITHOUT PICTURES, lol.

Thank you thank you thank you!!

That's terrific, Ali! With any luck he'll make it all the way to the end and love every minute of it.
