Armed with a mixed tape of Simon and Garfunkel live in Central Park from the late 80s, I'll be well equipped to drive across the bald prairies Saturday morning to Edmonton.
I'll be participating in the Book Lovers Christmas Sale put on by the Writers Guild of Alberta.
The Book Lover's Christmas sale runs from noon-5 pm at the Stanley A. Milner Library in the Centennial Room. More than forty Alberta authors (with over 100 titles) published in a wide range of genres (adult fiction&non-fiction, young adult, poetry, children's etc.,) will be on hand to sign books.
If that doesn't fill your literary heart with feelings of joy and anticipation then what will?
I'll be there from noon to about 3:30 signing copies of my debut novel Dead Frog on the Porch and the second in the Megabyte Mystery series Dead Bird through the Cat Door. I'll be doing a micro reading from Dead Bird through the Cat Door at 1:00 pm (note to self: figure out what a micro reading is before Saturday).
Other authors like Marty Chan, Karen Bass, Judith Graves, Alice Major, Linda Goyette and Bob Stallworthy will be on hand.
Make a dent in that holiday shopping for the book lovers in your life!
My awesome critiquing group - the Kensignton Writes' Group had a combo holiday potluck and meeting to talk about marketing. We laughed, we ate, we talked, we drank, we updated each other on what we'd been up to writing wise, and we ate some more.
