My Night at FoxTale Book Shoppe

Posted by on Apr 13, 2015 in 2015 | 0 comments

I’d like to thank FoxTale Book Shoppe for including me in this month’s Emerging Author and Discussion event. It was a pleasure meeting a diverse group of authors, along with readers. As usual, when I get back from a group authors’ event, I add more books to my reading list. Ann Timken’s personal story sounds intriguing, and I’ve added her fictional book titled Sight in the Sandstorm to my reading pile (which I hope to get to this summer after my latest release).

I had the pleasure of having two of my nieces join me for the event, which made the night even better. The downtown area of Woodstock, Georgia, is a happening place on the first Fridays during the warm months, and we ended our evening walking and enjoying the live music, lights, and ambiance. I ate an amazing black bean burger while sitting outside under the lights, and it was the perfect night.

It was a pleasure to meet Ann Timken and then end the night with two of my nieces. New faces, crazy family, great ambiance, and delicious food. Life is good!

Author Event at FoxTale Book Shoppe in Woodstock, Georgia

Posted by on Mar 31, 2015 in Future | 0 comments

I’ll be at FoxTale Book Shoppe in Woodstock, Georgia, this Friday, April 3rd, at 6:30 p.m. If you live in the area, please stop by. I’ll be there with some other authors, and we’d love to see you. FoxTale Book Shoppe holds a lot of events for authors and readers, and if you’ve never been there, I highly recommend you check them out. It’s truly an amazing place for book lovers.

I recently had an author from New York mention FoxTale on Twitter. She travels all over the country on book tours, and when she noticed I live in the Atlanta area, she started a conversation with me regarding her signing at FoxTale. Debut authors, along with big-name authors, visit Foxtale.

Woodstock, Georgia, is a small town near Atlanta, and you can find FoxTale Book Shoppe directly on the main street, along with a variety of quaint restaurants. You can make it a date night or girls’ night out. You can even make it a family night, as I’m sure your little ones would love to browse a bookstore and meet some authors. What a great way to teach your children the love of reading!

I hope to see you there. The address is 105 East Main Street #138, Woodstock, Georgia.

I’d like to thank the Augusta Richmond County Public Library for having me as one of their authors for the 4th Annual Augusta Literary Festival. It was an honor and pleasure to be a part of the festival, and the staff and volunteers went above and beyond. The library itself is large and spacious and is filled with activities run by the staff and volunteers. It’s quite impressive!

Don’t look for me in the group photo above, as I was busy listening to another author explain how she started writing a young adult fantasy series while her son was in the hospital for cancer. I was completely enthralled in the story of her writing journey and did not step away for the photo session. I hope to share her series with you soon, as it’s on the top of my read list.

While there, I got to meet some authors I already network with through Clean Indie Reads. I also found some future reads I can’t wait to download and read on my Kindle. I’ll definitely be posting reviews and sharing them with you.

Meet William L. Stuart and Charmain Z. Brackett. They’re both Clean Indie Reads authors from Georgia.

William was at the festival with his wife, and he’s the author of The Gemstone Chronicles, a young adult fantasy series. And, yes, it’s on my read list, also 🙂

Charmaine is the author of a young adult fantasy novella series, a mystery series, and a children’s book titled Little Pearl’s Circus World–which I fell completely in love with. It has a beautiful cover and is filled with amazing illustrations.

Charmaine’s grandmother was in the circus, and she did a lot of research to write this book. At the back, it includes beautiful pictures of her grandmother, and this book is not just a cute children’s book. It truly is an amazing work of art! I highly recommend you contact her for a signed copy to give as a gift.

I didn’t get to talk to Natalie Wilson much, as I didn’t find her until the end of the festival. I was checking out a few author tables when I recognized her books from Clean Indie Reads. She’s the author of the Children of Angels Series, which is currently getting a new cover design.

All these fantasy authors! I have a lot to read 🙂

I hope to attend the festival again next year, and I met many other authors outside of the fantasy genre and Clean Indie Reads group. I just don’t have the time to highlight all of them, but I do hope to see them again at future signings.

Pictures From Last Weekend’s Book Signing

Posted by on Dec 17, 2014 in 2014 | 0 comments

Here are some pictures from my latest book signing hosted by Truly Living Well in Atlanta. It was a beautiful day for an outside event and was very relaxing. I applaud what they are doing and was very surprised to see a plot of land in the middle of the city dedicated to growing organic vegetables. They offer classes and fresh produce, and they even harvest their own tea blends.


A special thanks goes to Linda Oberlin for including me in this event and for all that she does with Truly Living Well. Not only is she an amazing children’s author and illustrator, she has a big heart and loves children. Her book titled Eco in the Garden was inspired by Truly Living Well.

Of course, I’m all for fresh organic tea and food. I also bought a piece of pumpkin bread but ate that before taking a picture of my purchases. The tea blends were grown in the Truly Living Well garden, picked, and then dried and mixed for some unique flavors. I love trying new teas and had never even heard of basil tea.

Posted by on Dec 10, 2014 in Future | 0 comments

If  you’re in the Atlanta area this Saturday, December 13,  Truly Living Well is hosting a Holiday Farmer’s Market Bazaar and Literacy for the Season Book Village. I’ll be at the book village (along with other local authors), and I’d love for you to stop by. The festivities will be held at the Wheat Street Garden, and the address is 75 Hilliard Street NE, Atlanta, Georgia.

While there, you can tour the lights in the garden and do some Christmas shopping at the many booths available. I will be at the book village from noon until dusk on Saturday. The lights of service begin at dusk and ends at 9:00 p.m.

The activities are free and open to the public, and it’s a family friendly event. It’s also a great way to learn about the Wheat Street Garden. I have never been but have heard great things and look forward to learning more this weekend.

If you’re looking for unique and personal gifts, there will be a variety of authors and crafters at the event. Signed books and handcrafted items are some of the best gifts you can give to someone. I hope to see you there!
