The best sign of spring around Serenity Mountain Publishing these days is how quickly our dance card is filling up with events for the spring and summer! Here are a few of our upcoming events.
On March 20th, I will be the featured author at the monthly meeting of the Writers Colony at Dairy Hollow here in Eureka Springs. If you are ever looking for a writing get-away, they offer fantastic residency programs. I’ll be talking about my middle grade Cats in the Mirror series and lessons about self-publishing. Dinner is pot luck and everyone is welcome.
We are also super-excited to have gotten into the War Eagle Spring Craft Fair at the War Eagle Mill in Arkansas on May 2-4. Hundreds of vendors from all over come together to share their work, and it should be a great day to make new friends and share my first two books with new readers.
This spring I am planning to take advantage of some kindle free days for “Vacation Hiro” from April 17-19 in celebration of both Kimba and Hiro’s 7th birthdays. Don’t worry, I’ll remind you when we get closer. I am also in the process of pulling “Why Kimba Saved The World” from other internet vendors and will be focusing on the special kindle opportunities that amazon.com offers when you work with them exclusively. It takes a while to accomplish it all, so more on that later!
“Miss Fatty Cat’s Revenge” is on schedule to come out in September. The amazing Lesley Vernon has already started work on the cover art, so watch for that reveal in a couple of months.
New copies of both “Why Kimba Saved The World” and “Vacation Hiro” with the updated cover art to show the Silver Mom’s Choice Award should be in my hands shortly. With nicer weather at hand, we are ready to hit Basin Park and any other local events to share them with everyone we can! Many events are closed to self-publishing authors, no matter how great your reviews are or how many awards you win, but I’m always open to new ideas. Let me know if you have an event where I would be welcome or know of something I should check out.
Here’s hoping for nicer weather in everyone’s future–though I do have friends in Michigan who are rooting for a few more inches of snow this year so they can set the all-time record. And just for fun on Throw Back Thursday, here’s my very young self and my first cat, Satan.
