Most aspiring authors dream of becoming a famous published author who travels all around the world attending book signings and author events. But let’s face it, the reality is a far cry from the dream, especially for us Indie authors who practically have to beg for opportunities to showcase our works.
For me, the opportunity came sooner than expected. This Friday the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library is hosting an event for local authors, such as myself, to share our works of fiction with the local community. The event is from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the main branch. During this time, 30 plus authors from Howard county and several surrounding counties, including my close friend Teresa Robison, will be available to meet readers and sign autographs.
The goal of the event is to encourage reading, the idea being that “If you meet an author of a book, it enhances your reading experience, takes it to a new level.” -Lisa Fipps, director of marketing and community co-organizer of the author fair. The second goal is to showcase the talent of local writers, providing them a venue to sell their books. I’ll be given one table and two chairs to meet with readers on this date. If you’re in the area, feel free to stop on by and say hi!
The book I’ll be showcasing at this event is my debut novel, The Quest for the Holy Something or Other, an Arthurian parody that centers around the misadventures of Sir Kay and his page, Pig, as they seek out the elusive holy . . . whatever it is. If you’re unable to attend the event, or live too dang far away, please visit Amazon to order your copy today!
As always, thank you for stopping by! Happy Hump Day, everyone!
