I’ve written about these before and I’m sure I will again. They play an important part in an author’s life. But this will be a shorter blog post than usual. (I see you sitting there thinking, “Sure.”) LOL Truly it will be.
That’s because I want to highlight the book signing I (and a bunch of other Texas Authors) will be attending in McKinney on Saturday, June 3. (And we won’t take time to go into the “How can it possibly be June?” issue.)
I’m a member of Texas Authors, Inc. and they are sponsoring a giant Book Festival in Mc Kinney Square. There will be all kinds of authors and books there. I generally do best when it’s just other romance authors, but this one promises to be really something.
They will video me giving a 1- minute pitch about me and my books. You know how I love to have a microphone to speak into. 😊 But that means doing a bit of rehearsal, because I’m not a “sound-bite” kind of gal.
Authors in my NTRWA chapter attending are: Rebecca Adler, Jerrie Alexander, Linda Bolton, Linda LaRoque, Kimberly Packard, Kym Roberts, Susan Sheehy, CA Szarek, and of course, me.
The primary reason this is a shorter post than usual, is that I just MUST get ACT OF BETRAYAL finished so I can send it off to my editor. Despite the additions I’m making as I go back through one “last time,” I’m coming to terms with the fact this will be a shorter book than I usually write. 70-90 K is where my books fall. Not sure this one is going to hit the 70-K mark.
If I want to bring it out this fall, and I do, then it really has to go off to the editor pretty soon. Besides publishing book 3 in the Second Chances Series, I’m teaching a 4-week class at TCU in the Silver Frogs Continuing Education program on Indie Publishing. Very excited about this, but again, it takes time to prepare. Juggling several big projects at the same time is not my strong suit. Well, I can, but let’s say, I’m happier when I don’t have to do that.
Okay, so shorter than usual like I promised, but I’d still love to hear from you. If you’re a writer, do you go to book signings and what do you like best about them? If you’re a reader, if you go to book signings at all, do you look for new authors, or are you just after your favorites? Does the length of a book matter to you? And for all y’all in the DFW Metroplex, please stop by Saturday. I’d love to see you.
