1st Annual Indie Author Day

logo for Indie Author DayIf you’re an indie author, know one, and/or you’re into reading indie books, then you’ve probably heard about the 1st Annual Indie Author Day shenanigans happening next Saturday. Libraries across the US will be participating with author signings, panels, a live webcast, and all sorts of other fun stuff.

If you’re anywhere near  Tacoma, Washington, come on over to the University Place Library from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm, where several local authors (myself included) will be participating in the hoopla (parking is free). The great folks at this gorgeous new library will host a local writer exhibition in the UP Civic Center atrium. I’m sure it’ll be loads of fun, and with a bunch of us authors getting together you never know what could happen 😛

If you don’t live nearby and would like to find out if there’s a library near you that’s hosting a get together, you can find that out here.

Here are the deets:

When: Saturday, October 8, 2016 / 11:00 am- 2:00 pm

Where: University Place Library Civic Center atrium/ 3609 Market Place W #100, University Place, WA 98466

Live webcast: 2:00 pm EST (11 am Pacific) You can also watch the webcast online. 

I don’t know about you, but when I was young, a trip to the library was quite the occasion. I ALWAYS checked out my limit of books, and sometimes had to go back early because I’d read them all. I’m stoked that these libraries are supporting their indie community, and hope that this is the first of many, many Indie Author Days.

What better way to show your support for both indie authors and the great libraries that are participating than to head on out to your local library and be a part of Indie Author Day? 

Hope to see you there!

 Can’t wait to see you there!

If You’re in the Area…

Come on out and say hello. March 6th, I’ll be signing books at the Boatshed in Manette, Washington from 5-8pm. It’s First Friday ArtWalk and always a fun evening. I thought it fitting that I’ll be sequestered in the bar, signing and sampling their wines-by-the-glass…

AND, if you’re going to be anywhere near Portland, Oregon March 12-15th, I’d love to see you at  Left Coast Crime – Crimelandia.  LCC is a reader-writer Crimelandia - Left Coast Crime 2015extravaganza of a conference, held this year at the Doubletree by Hilton, and promises to be BIG fun. And if that wasn’t alluring enough, I’m banding together with three other suspense authors for Criminal Cocktails with the Women of Suspense on Thursday, March 12 from 5-6pm. I’ll be yakking it up with Donnell Bell, Christine Finlayson, and Cathy Perkins and 8 guests in the hotel bar (hurry, only 2 spots left!). The first round’s on us and I hear there’ll be some swag or books or inebriated writers or something…

Hmm. I think I see a theme emerging here…

If you’re going to attend the actual conference, I’ll be in some stellar company as part of a panel Thursday afternoon and lying about how to keep a series from growing stale.

And there you have it. I’ve been enamored of late with the slow-blog movement (read: haven’t had the time or brain cells to post more often), and am about halfway through the latest draft of #4 in the Leine Basso series, so if you don’t hear from me until sometime in March, don’t be alarmed. It’s just a case of crazy-writer syndrome and I’m sure I’ll be back in form in no time.

Maybe.
