Update! Florence Festival of Books


I'm happy to announce that the Florence Festival of Books was a complete success. More than 60 authors and publishers sponsored tables at the event which attracted approximately 350 visitors.

I was able to "talk shop" with several other Oregon writers, trade business cards and contact information, and even sell a few books. :)

The only negative part of the day was the rain. It was raining buckets when we were taking down our displays and carrying our books back to our cars. My friend and I got soaked. We got to make the hour long trip home with soggy socks and shoes! LOL

Sorry for taking so long to post this update. I've been busy with a new writing project, a science fiction novel, which has been taking up most of my limited free time. I've written more than 45,000 words in 6 weeks on the new project. I've never had a story come so easily! More updates to come!

As always, thank you for visiting my little blog and helping support my writing dreams. I really appreciate your support!
