For starters, the Florida Writers Association will host its annual convention next month. I'm currently making arrangements to secure an author table. Yours truly will be in attendance for two days, October 25th and 26th, to sign autographs, pose for photos, and chat with fans. If you plan to attend or happen to be in the Orlando area during those dates, swing by and say hello.
Then, of course, there is the convention's crowning moment: the Royal Palm Literary Award Banquet, on the evening of October 25th. Earlier this year I was thrilled to learn that my book was chosen as an award finalist. That's an accomplishment in itself for a first novel. Wish me luck on October 25th.
November's shaping up to be a big month too. Negotiations are underway with a local university to host me for an author meet and greet. I'm also flattered to say that I've been invited to give a presentation before a book club. I'll have more details on those later.
