We had an awesome time at the SW Florida Writers Showcase yesterday! Authors Christopher Cobb, Michael Warriner, and Antonio Simon Jr. were in top form, greeting fans and having fun! There we met friends old and new, such as fellow author Charles Cornell and a mystery jester lady who was kind enough to pose for photos! Thanks to everyone who came out to see us, and a big thank-you to the organizers of this fantastic event!

The Florida Writers Association will host its annual conference next week at the Orlando Marriott Lake Mary Hotel. If you happen to be in Central Florida on either October 25th and 26th, swing by.
Author Meet & Greet: Orlando Marriott Lake Mary
When: Saturday, October 25th, from 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Where: Orlando Marriott Lake Mary Hotel
Address: 1501 International Parkway, Lake Mary, FL 32746
Location: Table #1
My hosts have been so kind as to offer me an author's table for Saturday the 25th. If you come out to see me on Saturday, I'll be at table #1 for a half-hour starting at 11:00 a.m. After that, you can still catch me out and about at the convention. I'd be happy to sign autographs, pose for photos, and chat.
See you then!
If I've been quiet on my social media accounts, it's not been for lack of news. A lot is going on.
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.
