The Boatman's Daughter arrived, Poems from the Boatyard went Kindle, and my first book event took place last Saturday.
If you're missing the festivities because you didn't get a chance to pre-order, here's the link again.
Round 2 in my Fall book tour comes up tomorrow, with the Books Down South inaugural event (see below). My bags are loaded and my photographer is ready in the wings (BTW, you can see her capture of the first event on Facebook. Thank you Silvi!) All these are being fed to Stephen Andrews as he squirrels away at my new website, with technology I barely know exists. We're getting there. Take a peek: www.theliteryarboatyard.com, and don't forget to download the iphone app!
Thanks for the encouragements and FB likes and comments - generous, kind and abundant!
October 26: Books Down South Book Fair, 10 am - 3 pm, at the former Rivers Elementary School, Sandy Creek Rd. & Veteran's Pkwy, Fayetteville, GA. Book sellers, Author Signings, Storytelling, Children's Readers, Speakers, Giveaways.
Nov. 7-10: 2013 Other Words Conference, Florida Literary Arts Coalition, Flagler College, St. Augustine, FL. At the request of Finishing Line Press, which will have a table at the fair, I will attend as an FLP poet, and can promote my book. This also affords time to take advantage of a number of opportunities: getting to know more of the publisher's associates, attend workshops, and network. I've never done anything like this before, so ready to plunge into the next level of author development.
Nov. 14: Dogwood Gallery, 6:30-8:30 pm: Book Launch Party. Stop for some poetry, art, wine and nibbles.
Dec. 6: "PoeTea," 3-5 pm, at OM, 285 Lynnwood Ave., Tyrone, GA. Details to follow!
