Book signings and events galore
Posted on November 17, 2009 (Subscribe to Blog)
I've been busy over the last few weeks arranging events to promote my books, and have added a new Upcoming Book Signings and Events box at the top of the home page. Some bookings may show as greyed-out, meaning they're only partially confirmed – otherwise they'll show as a green light, with a confirmed date and time.
Yesterday I was told that Island of Fog is being processed for nearby Rossville Middle School's library. The media specialist at the school read the book and liked it, and wants it to be part of the school library system. This is great! And she wants to include the book, along with its sequel, Labyrinth of Fire, in December's "Tale Time" for 4th and 5th graders. This is where, every month, she shares books – "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue." In this case, my books are the "something new."
Meanwhile, Labyrinth of Fire is selling like hot cakes! I'm chewing my fingernails a little, wondering how it compares to the first book, but I've had two good reviews already. Also, my agent, Whitt Brantley Management and Talent, is now (or will shortly be) representing the new book. He remains hopeful that the story will, in some form, be picked up by a producer or publisher in the future. We just need to remain patient!
Wow, things are really moving along. Can't wait to read Labyrinth of Fire now with all this build-up!
Oops, I shouldn't have built it up! Actually Labyrinth of Fire is rubbish, no good at all. I invite people to buy and read it, but only if they have nothing better to spend their money on. ;-)
So modest... All the best, Keith.
Well done, Keith. Things are going swimmingly along for your writing career. Best of luck. On another note, it would be nice to know who won the competition for your book review of Island of Fog. Wasn't the prize a free Labyrinth of Fire?
Best wishes. Julie
Thanks Julie. And yes, a free copy of Labyrinth of Fire will be going to the person who (in my opinion) submitted the most substantive review. In fairness I included those who had already reviewed earlier in the year. I do have a winner, and will post about it in a day or two. Bear with me! :-)
