Fifth annual Authors Fair

I'll be participating in the fifth annual Authors Fair in Madison, Ind., on Saturday along with about 80 other authors from the region.

This free event, sponsored and organized by the great folks at That Book Place, will be at the National Guard Armory at 1533 Clifty Drive. It runs from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

The activities actually begin on Friday at That Book Place at 337 Clifty Place, with four one-hour panel discussions beginning at 6 p.m.: 
  • Finding the Time to Write 
  • So You Want to be a Writer? 
  • Crossing Genres
  • Music & Writing
There's a full slate of activities on Saturday at the National Guard Armory, in addition to authors discussing and signing books for the attendees.

Beginning at 9 a.m, there will be more one-hour panel discussions:
  • Marketing 
  • Romance 
  • Mystery
  • Paranormal
  • Fantasy
  • Pitch the Publisher (with Turquoise Morning Press)
  • Sci-Fi
  • Horror
There will be informative one-hour workshops, beginning at 10 a.m.:
  • Beginner's Guide to Writing and Publishing, with Iscah.
  • Polish Your Prose: Self-Editing for Fiction and Nonfiction Writers, with Susan Lindsey
  • Editors & Editing: What Writers Need to Know, with Lindsey
And there will be 20-minute readings throughout the day, starting at 10 a.m., featuring 24 of the authors. 

By the way, I'll be signing four of my books: "Shooting Star," "The Bully List," "A Confidential Man," and "Laments: Short Stories." 

As you can tell, the Authors Fair has something for readers, writers, educators, and book lovers. And Madison is a beautiful and historic town located next to the Ohio River.

Until the next time...
