Creating Children and Young Adult Stories, Armed with Imagination and a Pen

Local Author Expo March 3rd

The central library in Marietta, Georgia is holding their annual local author expo this Saturday and guess who will be there?  Me!  This is a chance to meet local authors and support a great cause.  Each local author who has a table will be selling some of their books and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Friends of the Cobb County Library System.  The expo will be held this Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at 266 Roswell Street.

Check out the press release.

I think I can…..I think I can…..

What do you think of the new cover?

Okay, so I finished up my dedication and acknowledgement page for The Nutt Family last night.  I went home yesterday feeling a little gloomy because I didn’t think I would have time to finish everything else up with the book and get copies to take to the local author expo on March 3rd.

I had told myself at the beginning of this year that I was going to take risks (so unlike me) and just go for it with my writing.  So, I stand today ready to make things happen.  I will work feverishly tonight to put the finishing touches on things and get my file uploading to the publishing site.  After that, I will expedite shipping on the books so I have them in time.  I will also be making bookmarks to hand out to the kids that come to the expo and I should be able to get those completed in time.

I have the determination to make this happen even though I have never been to an author expo in my life.  I am terrified, but I think I can do this!
