In the fall of 2017 I participated in two local author events. On October 14 I took part in a local author promotion at the South Mall in Allentown, PA. Though there wasn’t a lot interest shown in our books by the shoppers at the mall, I enjoyed meeting with my fellow authors and sharing the stories of our adventures in writing and marketing. A more successful event was the Local Author Day at Barnes and Noble in the Southmont shopping center in Easton, PA on November 18. We had four tables of local authors and lots of interest from the shoppers at the store. There were quite a few sales and lots of camaraderie. My next big event will be the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group’s Write Stuff Conference in Bethlehem, PA on March 24, 2018. This is an annual event that I always look forward to. I’m still promoting BEV: The Invisible Sister and now am getting ready to find a publisher for my Aurora St. Charles romance, Spell of the Samba. .
