Author’s Fair

No, that isn’t a lukewarm book review. That’s where I’ll be on Saturday: at the Author’s Fair in Madison, Indiana, a shebang thrown by That Book Place.

That Book Place is a wonderful new-and-used independent book store. It’s all in one big room, so you don’t get lost in a rabbit warren of wonder, as you do in some book stores. Getting lost in a book store has its own charm, but the charms of That Book Place include knowing where the door is, being able to check out all your fellow shoppers at the same time, the seller on duty being able to direct you to the section you want by remote control (“Next section. Now turn to your left. Your other left. Top shelf. Got it? Good!) and the possibility of a big group conversation with everybody in the store pitching in.

So the Southern Indiana Writers, including Yours Truly, will be there on Saturday, St. Patrick’s Day. We’ll have our anthologies and I’ll have CDs of my novels and short story collections.

Here’s a link to the Author’s Fair page at That Book Place so you can see who-all will be there. If you’re in the neighborhood, drop by and say hello. And buy a buncha books! 😉

WRITING PROMPT: Do you prefer an open shop, or one with stairs and rooms-off-of-rooms and cubbyholes? A shop, now, now a private home.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      SIW, Ginny Fleming and T. Lee Harris sold books at our table. I sold none. I think I WOULD have sold some, if I’d had them in print. It’s so weird: at the mystery convention, the readers snap up the electronic stuff. ~MA scratches her head~
