Very excited to announce that I'll be appearing Saturday, March 3rd at the Norfolk Public Library (NPL) Author Fair! It's their first-ever time putting on this event, so I'm thrilled to be a part of its initial appearance.
There will be as many as 50 local authors in and around the Norfolk/Hampton Roads area, with discussion panels, readings and other fun events all day long (and also on Sunday). Additionally, there'll be some awesome giveaways n' raffles that might just include a signed copy of the first volume of Election 2064.
This Thursday, January 4th, I'll be at the Central Library in Virginia Beach for a Meet the Authors event. Myself and some other great Hampton Roads writers will be on hand to talk about our writing process, projects we're currently working on, and will be available to sign books. I might even have some news on Book Two of the Election 2064 series!
Hope to see you there, more information is on the attached flier.
