Bookstore Signing In Lowell

We recently had a signing and author talk at the Middlesex Community College bookstore in downtown Lowell, to celebrate Insanity Tales, the great collection of horror stories.

Lovely time, interested crowd, and an excellent discussion.
Many thanks to Manager Jennifer MacGillivray and the bookstore staff for the opportunity to reach out to readers.

Here I am (on left) with fellow Insanity Tales authors David Daniel, Vlad V. and Ursula Wong

We talk about writing and publishing and collaboration among authors

Back With a Vengeance- Panel at Monson, MA Library

Sorry for being in absentia, but recently started a new job. The hours are long, and the work demanding. So little time to write for the blog while finishing a novel, writing stories, and trying to keep up with all that's happening.

First off, we had a great night at the Monson, MA Public Library. I was on a great panel of authors: Host T. Stephens, Vlad V., Steve Hobbs, B. B. Boudreau, Slam Poet Joseph Mosby, and his cousin Arthur Strategos Williams.

And a bit of audience participation. Our host discovered there were poets in the audience (including J.H. Curry), and he pulled them up to tell us about themselves.

Many thanks to Hope Bodwell, the Library Director, for setting up a great night of meeting readers. Great snacks, and we even got gift bags! A first from all the library events we've done.

Joseph's cousin, Arthur Strategos Williams. He has a great talent for spoken word poetry

And B. B. Boudreau, hamming it up. Funny thing is, I see that bust in a lot of libraries.
