Connecting with readers and other writers is one of the benefits of being an author. When I do a book signing and see readers and other writers there supporting my work, it warms my heart. But when I watch the participants also mingling and chatting with each other, it excites me. That is what a writing community is all about.

Indie Bookstores supporting local authors, book clubs discussing books, organizations that encourage reading and writing, and writing conferences are all ways to connect with others who love books. To help assist in this gathering of community, I’m sharing Upcoming Events in the Seattle, Washington area and in San Diego, California (and sometimes elsewhere) that might be of interest to writers and readers. I encourage you to check them out!

 

What’s Up With Indy

New Book Release and Upcoming Book Event

 

I’m fairly new to the lovey state of Washington and look forward to joining and becoming active within the writing community of this region. I also plan to stay connected to the San Diego writing community. I will be participating in opportunities as they make themselves available.

On March19th I will be attending Indie Author Night at the Brick & Mortar Books store in Redmond, WA. I’ll be among twenty authors who will have books available for purchase and signing. I hope you’ll take the opportunity to drop by between 6-8pm to chat and introduce yourself. I’d love to meet some of my readers and fellow writer friends up here in Washington!

IN THE WORKS: my newest book, Reputation is scheduled for release in the Spring. This is stand alone book in the Romantic Suspense genre. 

If you haven’t yet read the Fox Walker Novels, the first book, Tracker is currently on Sale. The Kindle is 99 cents and the Print Book is only $9.95

If you are in a writing group or member of an organization, or have a favorite writing conference you want to recommend, I’d love to hear from you. And I’d be happy to post upcoming meetings and events here for readers to discover. Feel free to Contact me and I’ll pass along the information.

Writers helping other writers is the best part of the writing community!
