Stop into Symposium Books this Saturday from 1 to 3 PM for a spot of tea, a little trivia and some nice conversation with me and three other women authors from Rhode Island about our books, writing, publishing and being an woman author in this wacky little state. Hope to see you locals.
Symposium Books is located at 240 Westminster Street in Providence.
Fantastic article in the Sunday ProJo. Steven and Dawn Porter are dedicated, talented artists and promoters. I’m not always a big “joiner” but I have great respect for the Porters and their efforts to bring Rhode Island authors together. I find most authors understand that there is “some for everyone” and freely support each other even as we struggle to support our own writing, as one local reader for one author will definitely benefit another as we promote the extensive and varied local talent in Rhode Island.
Come visit next Saturday if you’re nearby. You will be sure to find some unique treasures for yourself and to give as gifts. I speak from experience as I always find something special and have given local books to friends and family with very satisfying results.
Read Mike’s blog to see his interview with me to promote the ARIA Book Expo on November 8th – that’s next Saturday! He has been doing a fantastic job promoting the event and the authors. Check out his Overlordsfantasy series too!</http://theoverlords.blogspot.com
Those of you who regularly tune in know that yesterday I had the pleasure of spending time with many ARIA authors. In all honesty I have to tell you all how impressive both the work and the character of the people has been so far. As a writer it’s comforting to have such a supportive network; as I reader I am learning so much about what our local authors have to offer.
So, for your reading pleasure, here are three more authors to learn about. Show them your support, especially you Rhode Islanders out there! Many thanks – and feel free to comment here about the any of the authors I’ve posted this past week.
Please check out one of my ARIA colleagues, Alex Kimmell, who will be participating in the 2014 Expo on November 8th!
I will be reposting introductions to ARIA authors all this week, so please stay tuned and let me know what you think- the ARIA Expo is guaranteed to be an awesome event and opportunity to meet some of Rhode Island’s brightest authors!
I will be there on February 22nd, along with a whole bunch of my Rhode Island Author colleagues and friends. PJ O’Rourke, Debbie Macomber and… Dr. Ruth Westheimer are the featured authors, which should be interesting to say the least. There are also 20 workshops/talks being offered.
I am a proud member of the pretty new ARIA (Association of Rhode Island Authors), and a bunch of us will be there with copies of our books for sale.
