I had a recent interview with an arts reporter for the Whitworth University campus newspaper, The Whitworthian. It came out this week, on Wednesday. I immediately ran up to the campus and picked up a few copies of the paper version. Here is the online version of the story: The Whitworthian.
Last week, I wrapped up the rewrite and edits for the sequel to Sudden Mission. The working title is Nasty Leftovers. I uploaded the document to my publisher and put together my production team. I can now say that the sequel is now in edit and our tentative release date is February 2, 2016. This may change. The editor is going to look it over first and let us know if this date is good.
Other marketing and community outreach efforts are starting to come together. I made contact with the libraries of local Christian schools to offer a visit and reading. I’m still waiting to hear back, but I hope there will be a couple of events.
In October, I’ll be at the Whitman County Library, 102 S Main, Colfax, WA, on the 27th (12:30 to 1:15 pm) to read to a group of middle graders and talk to them. This is open to the community, as well. While I only get about 25 minutes with the kids, I’ll have time to talk and visit with anyone else interested.
As a result of my contact with the Whitman County Library, they ordered my book to include in their collection. That is so cool!
December 3, from 3 to 6 pm, I’ll be back at the Whitman County Library again for a signing. This is during the Colfax Winter Festival and Festival of Trees. I’ll have books to sell and sign, and look forward to meeting lots of folks.
I have things to do to prepare for these and other events (like the Indaba Coffee reading and signing). I’m going to see about getting some posters or something made to help promote the events.
I’m trying to keep the Events page up to date, so check in with that periodically for changes, updates, or new events. If you can get to one, even just to say “Hi!”–it would be greatly appreciated.
