I've been a bit overwhelmed by 2018 thus far, I admit, and sadly, this blog has been one of the things I've neglected, so here it is: what I've been doing and what I am going to be doing:
On February 10, along with Lynn Brunelle, Carol Cassella, Bridget Foley, Warren Read, and Susan Wiggs, I participated in an event celebrating love and Valentine's Day, hosted by Bainbridge Artisan Resource Network (BARN). We were all given the first line of "It was love at first sight," and commissioned to write a short piece to read aloud at this gathering, which also included wine and chocolate. Want to check out the piece I read? Here it is, for your delectation. It was Love at First Sight.
Here's a picture from the event, with me, Susan Wiggs, Suzanne Selfors, and Lynn Brunelle. (That's Carol in the red, with her back to the camera)
Next up, I'll be celebrating the release of Kristin Hannah's new novel, The Great Alone, at The Loft, in Poulsbo, WA., at a signing event hosted by Liberty Bay Books. I'll be interviewing Kristin about all things Kristin at the event, which should be ... interesting!
March 13th, I'll be at the Den at Chop Suey, in Seattle WA., for the fifth anniversary of Lit Fix, reading with other authors while we drink and listen to a band. Five dollars at the door supports Team Read. As drinking and reading are two of my favorite things, I'm really looking forward to this.
Okay, 2018, I'm catching up, slowly but surely. :)
