Upcoming Writing Events- Add Yours for your Location…


 

events
This week I am organizing myself for Word on the Street in Lethbridge with my publisher, Dream Write Publishing. We have attended this event before in Lethbridge but also Saskatoon, so it will be good to return.
I am hoping the delivery of my new novel, The Twesome Loop makes it in time but if not I can compile order sheets to get signed by interested readers. I will have my other books with me – Rumble’s First Scare, Ockleberries to the Rescue, Clickety Click and The Rython Kingdom.
The trip will begin on Friday so we can have a leisurely drive down, settle into our hotel and relax prior to the setting up the following morning. Another Dream Write author is attending, Guy Chambers, which will be a first for him.
As usual I will utilize the time to write – probably on Sunday prior to returning home and if possibly Friday and Saturday evenings. It depends on what is happening as there is a local writers group, The River Bottom Writers we connected with some time ago. So we may spend time with some of the members.
