SEPT. 20, 2010: "MEET THE WD EDITORS" AT JOSEPH BETH
This a two-part event. There is a "Meet the WD Editors" panel going down at 7 p.m. at Joseph Beth Booksellers in Rookwood Pavilion. Basically, we are there to help you on your writing journey. You ask questions; we give answers—it's that easy and it's all free. Also, at 5:30 p.m., there will be a quick informal eat and schmooze book party for my humor book that comes out on Sept. 7: How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack. Come and schmooze.

I will be presenting on "Everything You Need to Know About Agents" at 3:30 p.m., at the Erlanger branch of the Kenton County Library in Northern Kentucky. Location: ten minutes south of downtown Cincy. In fact, my speech is the final event of an entire day's worth of writerly happenings at the library. I don't see the event online (yet), so I don't know if it costs to attend. The contact is Venus Moose, venus.moose[at]kentonlibrary[dot]org.
