I’m very excited to announce that I am in the planning stages of my first-ever book signing. Dates and locations will be announced once I have that information, but I am aiming for September dates. At this point, I am planning one event, but depending on turnout and stock I might have additional events. People who already have the book can bring it to be signed, and those who want to purchase a book to have signed will be able to do so. Also, don’t forget to visit Authorgraph if you have a digital version of the book that you want signed. Each digital autograph is personalized by me.
This week is Spring Break, and I have so many things to do. First, I am alpha reading the brand new novel by the wonderfully talented Johnny Worthen titled The Brand Demand. So far, I’m loving the story. I had hoped to be finished with it by today, but I’ve been spending time with my kids so it’ll be a few more days. I’m also the new web mistress for the IU-South Bend Creative Writing Club. I have an Informatics minor, so I decided to put my education to use. I built the social media platform and am posting the writing prompts, advice blogs, etc. It’s a lot of extra work, but I’m enjoying it and we’re getting some really great conversations going. If you’d like to play along, visit the blog and post what you come up with in the comments section of the post or on our Google Groups page. Introduce yourself, make some friends, and let’s write together. I have a few more pieces I want to work on for my poetry chapbook. The more new material I write, the more I’m deciding the bulk of the old stuff needs to go. I’m also looking into setting up some freelance writing gigs. I may or may not pursue that option, but I want the information anyway. I won’t be able to get back to Enraptured this week, which makes me sad, but I have some homework assigned over break that needs to get done first. Notably, I need to read Taming of the Shrew and write a paper on the Wife of Bath’s tale in Canterbury Tales by Chaucer.
The time is flying and in around six weeks I will be awarded my degree in English Creative Writing. I hope I have time to get everything done.
