This Writer’s Journey–Alan Dean Foster

Writing is a journey, one I truly love and enjoy, but it can sometimes feel rather lonely. Hour after hour, alone, at the computer, pouring your heart and soul into each word. But I’ve learned I’m not alone, in fact, I’ve been blessed to be in contact with some amazing people, both writers and non-writers.
I want to share a bit of that with you. Each week I’ll be spotlighting someone I’ve come in contact with during my journey. Thanks for stepping along side of me—all of you—during this exciting time!


Alan Dean Foster
I met Alan through my publicist back in March. He graciously agreed to go on The Morning Scramble with me. At first I was like, Really? You’re a NY Times Best Selling Author, what do you want to do hanging around me?
For real.
He was just so nice. Gracious. Encouraging. It was really great getting to know him. And then he came down to join me at my Awaited Book Launch event at The Changing Hands Bookstore in May. He even gave me an autographed The Chronicles of Riddick book! **whoa**
I’m so very glad I got to get to know Alan on my writing journey. Such an amazingly talented person. His smile is contagious and he’s just so sweet. So, thank you, Alan, for coming along side me in my journey!

Changing Hands Bookstore

Tuesday night’s book signing was SUPER fun!  Here are a bunch of pictures to show a little bit….

Now. . . it was my first time getting up for a formal “speech” and reading. I’ve done readings on radio shows, sure, but live? I think it went fine. I know I SURE had fun!  Of course, when I get to chat it up about writing, all things paranormal, and the new adult genre…I’m a happy camper.

Even more fun…hanging out with readers. Gosh, it’s so awesome meeting the people who read my books. It just makes me smile.

Alan Dean Foster is such a nice guy. He’s fun, laid back, and a total writing genius. Maybe some of his brilliance will rub off on me…I could only be so lucky.

Anyway, thanks for those who came. It was really nice to get to know you all. And for those who missed it, I’ll be around Arizona this summer AND Colorado! So, stay tuned….

Lynn Rush & Alan Dean Foster together….

Today were celebrating the release of my second book, AWAITED, down at Changing Hands Bookstore!

Sure, it released on May 1st, but TODAY, we’re going to have a little party. So, if you’re in Arizona, I sure hope you stop by. I’d LOVE to meet you.

I have the very special Alan Dean Foster celebrating with me. He’s a legend in the Sci-Fi world, having penned over 118 novels, including: Star Trek, Star Wars, Terminator Salvation, Aliens…I could go on, but you can just CLICK HERE to get to his site to check out his bibliography.

I had the privilege of appearing on The Morning Scramble with him back in March, and he’s just an amazing guy. Sweet, gracious, and very talented!!

I’m honored he’s joining me tonight.


S is for Seether and Skillet

Okay, I know you’re getting sick of me posting Skillet.

But seriously, that band rocks. They’ve been SOOOO influential in the whole Wasteland Trilogy, I just have to play them on the A to Z Music Challenge…

This is my favorite video. Check out that drummer.  How the heck does she sing like that while hammering on those drums?

Another “S” band that’s showing up on my Wasteland Trilogy playlists is SEETHER.  My dear friend Kendall Grey turned me onto this group.

Check this one out:

What bands are rocking your iPod??
