Who: Friends, family, neighbors, and anyone else who loves books!
What: Instead of a traditional book release event, I’m combining the celebration of my new novel with a rummage sale featuring hundreds of used books, fiction and nonfiction, across a variety of genres—all for 25 cents apiece. Earnings support my future writing and publishing endeavors.
When: 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, June 22.
Where: Outside my home, 1122 Carriage Circle, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
Why: Cover art, Library of Congress registrations, barcodes, ISBNs, proof copies, miscellaneous marketing efforts—these things cost money, which means I must sell more books.
I’m booked for a few more gigs farther out. The new website will have a page devoted to events, but for now, you can find details on Facebook.
Busy is good. Although I feel fully booked right now, I wouldn’t be surprised if a few more events appeared on my agenda before year’s end.
The writing is on the wall.
