Our author reading on Saturday was amazing – eight readers and a great audience. Social Grounds Coffeehouse did us proud with allowing us once again to utilize their beautiful premises.

On Sunday I attended a friend’s book launch – Carla Howatt has written an emotional and powerful book about her experience after her son’s suicide.

Last week I also attended a grant presentation for my writers group, Writers Foundation of Strathcona County. This grant will assist us in publishing our Canada 150 book, which tells stories of Canada, whether it is memories, wildlife, landscape, seasons or any other ‘Canadian’ theme. County Clothesline are always so generous with their grants to local non-profits and organizations. http://wfscsherwoodpark.com/wfsc-canada-150-book-project

This week is less eventful (pardon the pun) so writing is my goal.

Why not add you local events here – promotion is never a bad thing!

After a wonderful birthday on Sunday, I am feeling thoroughly spoilt, loved and happy. It was such a relaxing day with my ‘kids’ – real one-on-one time with each of them.

This week I will be preparing for an author reading on Saturday. There will be local authors with some Writers Foundation members and Dream Write Publishing authors. I’m looking forward to reading from my newest manuscript, The Twesome Loop. (Official launch of the novel will be 30th September).

The best part of an author reading is the reaction to your words from the audience and the questions they ask.

As I was looking through my notes I found a past blog post which echoed this event. The tips for an author reading are still relevant.
