We love to see our authors out participating in their communities, sharing their expertise and their books, and meeting readers. These events happen around the country and sometimes around the world. We love to receive reports and photos of local author activities, such as the following:
Donna Marie Merritt was a guest artist at the Watertown (Connecticut) Farmers’ Market, selling and signing her many books including BIBLE POEMS. Donna is a long time resident of Watertown and well-known local poet, who has also worked in the community as a school teacher and librarian. Her goal is to ensure that every person of every age has books they love to read. Worthy goal, I’d say.
On Saturday November 2, John Buzzard, author of the Cladach historical novel THAT DAY BY THE CREEK, has sold and signed copies of his books at the Empire Ranch Cowboy Festival in Sonoita, Arizona, along with other members of the Western Writers of America. Looks like a great time, John! And I like the cowboy hat.
Marilyn Bay signed copies of her novel, PRAIRIE TRUTH, at Coffeehouse Ten24 in Eaton, Colorado. Marilyn says she enjoyed visiting with people “about books, writing and the rest of life.”… Marilyn’s roots go deep in Northern Colorado farming soil, and her books, including ALL WE LIKE SHEEP: LESSONS FROM THE SHEEP FARM find eager readers near and far.
James Troy Turner sold and signed copies of poetry books, POEMS and MORE POEMS during the downtown festivities for Sugar Beet Days in Sterling, Colorado. Troy enjoyed signing his books, showing off his dog, PJ, and visiting with both new and old friends and customers, some of whom remember him from his farm-equipment mechanic days.
Dennis Ellingson, known as “The Herb Guy,” and Kit Ellingson set up their booth for the Master Gardener’s Fair in Central Point, Oregon. We’d love to have been there along with others of the public who stopped by to check out Dennis’s books and plants and Kit’s photography. Dennis and Kit are joint authors of THE GODLY GRANDPARENT and Dennis’s books include the ever-popular GOD’S HEALING HERBS and GOD’S WILD HERBS.
Don’t we have resourceful, creative, and engaging authors!?
