Holiday Reminder

Signing Their Rights Away by Denise Kiernan and Joseph D'Agnese

Just a reminder for anyone who is looking for signed copies of my traditionally published books: The best way to get autographed copies is to order them by phone from the two independent bookstores in the town where I live.

Both Malaprop’s and the children’s bookstore Spellbound will take orders, get me in to autograph the books any way you like, and ship them out to you.

Both stores currently have stock on all my titles, and ordering from them is simpler than mailing me the book and having me sign and return it to you.

As always, if you already have a book and would like a signed bookplate, contact me via the contact page. A good season to all!

Freelance Friday

Freelance Friday Group, Asheville, NC, circa 2011.

Every First Friday of the month, we meet with our Freelance Friday group at our local bookstore, just to hang out and talk with some creative people, all of whom support themselves doing some kind of freelance work.

They are writers, photographers, life coaches, marketers and more. We are connected to the larger freelance movement via our book The Money Book for Freelancers.

In the U.S. this segment of the workforce is more than 40 million people strong. We are developing a nice list of regulars at our Freelance Friday meetings and we’re proud of it.

Literary March Madness

Literary March Madness at Malaprop's Bookstore, Asheville, NC

I know nothing of sports. But I do know books. Which makes me very qualified to participate in my local bookstore’s Literary March Madness...thing.

Should you pick ‘em according to literary quality? Should you pick the book you think will sell the most? Or should you just guess?

What if you haven’t read all the books on the sheet; how will you pick then? I dunno. It’s just fun. In this round, it’s a no-brainer. Conroy’s over-the-top Southern melodrama beats Larsson’s over-the-top Swedish melodrama.
