Sorry, I couldn't resist a title like that. It won't happen again, I promise.
However, Robert and I will be making two bookstore appearances over the next couple of weeks. If you're in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area, come see us this Wednesday, August 22 (7 p.m.), at the Joseph-Beth Bookstore, Rookwood Commons. Your humble bloggers join market book editors Alice Pope (Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market) and Chuck Sambuchino (Guide to Literary Agents). We have the bases covered for any writing and publishing questions you may have; and the Joseph-Beth folks do a great job with these events. (Shopping before and after the event is a treat as well.) Hope to see you there!
For those of you in the Dayton, Ohio area, we're appearing on Wednesday, August 29 (7 p.m.), at Books & Co. (the store at The Green, not at the Town & CountryShopping Center). Lauren Mosko, editor of 2008 Novel & Short Story Writer's Market, will be our esteemed fellow presenter.UPDATE: The bad news is that Lauren Mosko won't be joining us at Books & Co. on August 29th; the good news is that Alice Pope will be taking her place. This is always a lively event, one we look forward to; and for me, at least, this is my first visit to the year-old store at The Greene. Stop by with your writing and publishing questions.
