I was so excited to attend the big authors’ conference in Denver this past week. Sadly, the judges did not award DEADLY CONNECTION the big prize, but I was honored to be a finalist in the fiction category. With the anticipation over, I’m moving forward with publication. I called my cover designer from Denver and she’s planning to have my cover by the end of September. Things are moving along and if all goes according to plan, the book will be out in October.
I’ll be at the Douglas County Library in Minden on October 5th from 4:30-6:30pm. I’ll be joining about a dozen other authors to celebrate Author Day. Stop by and visit if you’re in the area. That same week, on Sunday, I’ll be at the Spanish Springs Library on October 9th from 2:00-4:00pm. They’re hosting an Indie Author Day event and I’ll be showcasing my books and speaking on a panel.
And to finish off October, I hope you’ll stop by the Old Post Office in Fallon for the Author Tea & Book Sale on Saturday, October 22nd. We have over a dozen local authors and they’re getting together to offer their books at a discount for early holiday shoppers. We’ll have hot and iced tea and a few nibbles to go with our books, not to mention free books to win in our raffle. Hope to see you there from 1pm-4pm. Author introductions will be short and will begin shortly after 1pm...so be there on time, if you want to learn a bit about each author’s books.
