One year ago, I was heading to Tucson to meet and greet readers. I had my books sent to my parents’ house early so I wouldn’t have to bring them on the plane. I had my promotional materials, a new haircut, and my best smile ready.
A few days before my scheduled flight, COVID hit and we were shut down. The festival was cancelled. I was saddened by the news, but the people I felt sorriest for were the organizers and volunteers. They worked so hard.
It’s one year later, and those same indefatigable people have organized a virtual event. You can find it here from March 6-7.
I’m in the Indie Author Pavilion again, albeit it’s just a page online. Still, I know how hard they fought just to get us authors this page, so I am extremely grateful. You’ll see from my bio that What the Cluck? It’s Murder is out, and Deadly Decorum is on its way!
I highly encourage you to visit them and register. You need Crowdcast to view the live talks, but the Arizona Star has made a video giving easy instructions on how to do this for free.
I’m looking forward to talks by Dean Koontz, Ann Cleeves, J.A. Jance, and others. I’m also eager to discover new authors.
Drop by and visit, and let me know what you thought about the event. I’d love to hear about your experiences!
Hope to see you there!
