If you're not doing anything tonight (Tuesday, June 15, 2010) at 7:00 p.m.

come by the Cary Barnes & Noble store and join a bunch of SF/fantasy authors for a discussion and signing. By the kindness of Linda Maloof, the Community Relations Manager of that store, I will be one of those writers. Joining me will be my esteemed colleagues--and fellow co-panelists from past events there--David Drake, James Maxey, and Lisa Shearin. (Lisa shares the credit with Linda for making the entire affair happen.) A new member of our group--new, that is, to me, because I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting her--is Kelly Gay.

If you haven't been to one of these events before, it'll go roughly like this: Linda will introduce us (or have us introduce ourselves). We'll each yak a little, and then we'll answer questions. At the end, we'll sign books. Though it's true that we cannot deliver any flying monkeys, we will nonetheless do our best to be entertaining. Judging from the reactions of past audiences, we usually do a more than decent job.

Of course, if no one shows, we five writers will walk around the store making moon eyes at the customers until we guilt enough of them into sitting down that they outnumber us. Save your fellow book buyers this terrible fate and come on down to the Cary Barnes & Noble.

I'm very much looking forward to it. No moon eyes, though. That would be awkward.

Mark said...

Fine. No moon eyes.

It was great to meet you, Mark! Maybe next time I'll be more articulate, and the nerves will stay at home, LOL.

Looking forward to getting Children No More in Aug. Will definitely spread the word.

It was a good crowd, and it seemed like you all did a fine job keeping everyone entertained.

Mark said...

Kelly, it was great meeting you, too, and you did a fine job on the panel.

Thanks for the support of Children No More and the child soldiers. I appreciate it.

Mark said...

Thanks for the kind words, Laura.
