Free Author Open House - Tuesday, November 29 (I'll be there from 6-7:30 p.m.)
This year I've been a busy girl and have been fortunate enough to have stories published in several anthologies. I will have copies of the following books with my stories in them available for purchase and will gladly sign copies.
"Read Away Vacation" in Flashlight Memories (a true story)
"Look Back but Don't Stare" in A Shaker of Margaritas: Cougars on the Prowl (pictured above, bottom right hand corner) (Me? A Cougar? This one is definitely fiction!)
"The Night the Circus Came to Town" in Mysteries of the Ozarks (Vol II) (Ozarks mystery short story)
"Bridie O'Shea's Golden-Haired Visitor" in Cactus Country (Western short story)
"Golden Lilacs Under the Worm Moon" in Storm Country Anthology (funds go to the Joplin Libraries)
"Under Grandma's Bottle Tree" in Voices Anthology (nominated for a Pushcart Prize)
If my back isn't hurting from hauling copies of all those books to the library, I might also bring a couple copies of A Cup of Comfort for Military Families, A Cup of Comfort for Women, Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Gift of Christmas and other anthologies my stories have appeared in over the past years.
The event is FREE and registration is not required, but I believe the library wants people to register to get an estimate of how many will be there so they can purchase enough refreshments. Check out the list of other writers appearing at the event.
Even if you're not in the mood for shopping, I hope you will stop by and visit tomorrow night, Tuesday, Nov 29. I'll be there from 6 till 7:30 p.m.
