Writing Workshops & Book Events

Some parts of life are returning to normal, even with my fall events cancelled. I had the chance to participate in an outdoor local author event at Bookish in Fort Smith at their Bakery District location. It wasn't as well attended as they had hoped, but I met some wonderful people and we managed to share stories around our masks. 

Bookish and I are working on getting a couple of my titles on consignment there, so stay tuned for that update. I must get to the main location soon so I can meet Barrie, their store cat. 

I spent a delightful day with the White County Creative Writers over the weekend speaking to them about "Writing for Children" and "Running With Inspiration." It was odd to be in a room full of people again, but masks were worn when we left our table space and distances were kept. They are such an engaged group, striving to make their writing the best it can be. It is always a joy to be invited to hang out with other writers!

If you are still not comfortable or able to attend the conferences you normally do, here's a link to my "Running With Inspiration" or "What-If" workshop that I did for an event that went online. It's much shorter than what I would do in person because I had a time limit, but it might still inspire you to take pen to paper (or hands to keyboard) today. 

Now I'm back to the final steps in presenting my new book, The Tigran Chronicles, to the world. You can already purchase a paperback copy through my website (for signed copies with a matching bookmark) or through Amazon. The ebook is in final editing and should be done by next week, and the hardcover is in the final gasps as well. Almost there!
