October has always been one of my favorite months. The changing colors of the leaves. The cool, crisp change in temperatures. The World Series. NFL and college football. NASCAR’s final races, the start of college basketball and NHL seasons. The Titans. Pumpkins. A look toward all the holidays ahead.
And now I have even more reason to celebrate October. I’ve written a little more in-depth about the Southern Festival of Books elsewhere, but it was an event I hope to be involved with for many years to come. Like Killer Nashville, it is one of the nation’s premier literary events.
Now I am looking ahead to the rest of the year and toward 2014. Early next month, I hope to be speaking about my book at my newest outlet, Miss Daisy’s Kitchen at Grassland Foodland Market. I recently met with Miss Daisy King, and she agreed to carry a few of my books alongside her popular cookbooks. We don’t have a date set, but I hope to announce one ASAP. Here is a link to Miss Daisy King’s website. http://www.missdaisyking.com/
Following that, I will be speaking to the next generation of high school journalists on Nov. 25 at the Tennessee High School Press Association fall workshop at Lipscomb University. Then it’s on to the Author’s Circle meeting at 2nd & Bridge in Franklin on Dec. 12, and the Dickens of a Christmas event on Dec. 14-15.
Next April, I will be speaking at the Donelson Library Book Club at 2 p.m. on the 17th. Two days later, I will attending the Nashville Film Festival and Script-Com as a member of the Tennessee Screenwriting Association. Did I mention I was working on a screenplay of Vendetta Stone? We’ll see where it goes.
And it is now official: I will be at the Southern Kentucky Book Fest on April 25-26 in Bowling Green. I’ve heard it’s a great event.
So it’s been a good start for Vendetta Stone. I was in the car the other day listening to the old Chicago song “Beginnings”. That’s how I feel about this fall’s launch of Vendetta Stone.
Thanks for reading,
