Bobbi Smith Autograph Party for The Gunfighter
Today in St. Peters, MO: Thunderstorms, high 69 degrees.
Tomorrow afternoon my friend Louella and I are going to an autograph party. New York Times bestselling author and "Queen of the Western Romance," Bobbi Smith, will be signing copies of her latest book, The Gunfighter, who, according to the cover, "aims to please."
Bobbi is one of the sweetest and most generous writers I know, and I'm not saying that just because we grew up in the same neighborhood--she also writes darn good books.
Bobbi is an honorary member of Saturday Writers and a writer who definitely believes in "giving back." She has donated (as in doing for free) countless hours to Saturday Writers and the Missouri Writers Guild-- judging contests, serving on panels, being a guest speaker, even writing blurbs for writers just starting out. She also has been a teacher for her parish school of religion, donated scholarships for high school students pursuing careers in writing; I could go on and on.
So, if you're in the metro-St. Louis area, Bobbi will be signing books tomorrow, Friday, October 2, from noon until 2:00 p.m. at World News in Westport Plaza.
Hope to see you there!
