I've had a few recent events that are worth noting.

  I attended a nice get together in Jackson, TN back in June with fellow author Henry L. Sanders. We talked about my work with other folks in his community and discussed plans for future events.  I got to do a reading which was well received, and that's always a nice.

  I attended Fandom Fest in Louisville, KY, and that was a blast, of course.  Despite some snafus in letting con goers know about the literary track programming, sales occurred and panels were attended.  I met a lot of authors and publishers, such as Michael WIlliams of Weasel's Luck and Vine: An Urban Legend.  His book launch was a great time and Vine has been a great read so far.  I also met fellow, ancient Historian and author, A. Jacob Sweeny, and fellow author Jeff Glaze, among numerous others.  

  I had my first solo book signing at the Booksellers at Laurelwood on July 12.  It was publicized beforehand at the bookstore, in the Memphis Flyer, and on FM 91.1 here in Memphis on their show Checking on the Arts.  Darel Snodgrass was a gracious host, and I thank him for it.  Thank you WKNO FM for the air time.  The signing was well attended, by my modest standards, and some books were sold and signed that night.  Thank you one and all for coming out.  Thank you, Carlin Stuart, for the photos.  Thank you Charlotte Bray of Laurelwood for keeping me on track.

I look forward to August's event at the Booksellers at Laurelwood.

In other news, I've nearly finished the first draft of a new Novella, titled Penultima, which is a post-apocalyptic story with, but not about, some Zombies.  I'll be sending it to a publisher for consideration soon, I hope.
