After a busy weekend I wanted to share some highlights with you. Friday, I had the privilege, and honor of being interviewed on kuhsdenver.com. I was Laura Padgett’s special guest for the broadcast, a half-hour segment with local authors. She had inquisitive and engaging questions for me, but the question she really wanted to know was: when is the next book coming out?
Sitting Dead Red, will hopefully make an appearance on February 13th, 2016. My goal is to put it out in conjunction with the start of the college baseball season. I plan to make it available in paperback, as well as an e-book. If you enjoyed Paint the Black, I recommend you pick up a copy.
On Saturday, along with a number of other authors, I had a book signing at a new indie book store in Evergreen, CO, called Where the Books Go. It is a quaint little bookshop with a ton of charm. I always love talking to fans of my book, and couldn’t wait to share it with people who were unfamiliar. I was able to sell a few books, as well as sign my name a few times. 😉
The signing gave me a chance to rub elbows with fellow authors. It is a time that I covet, because I am able to pick the brains of people who have been around the business a lot longer than I have. Authors have different stories. Each experience is unique, and anything I can take away from their experiences are gold.
I just so happened to be sitting next to gentleman, who was also there for the signing with me for his new book, Broken! He happened to be wearing a, “Bayside the Musical,” sweatshirt. I thought to myself, why a fifty-year-old man would be wearing a “Bayside” sweatshirt, so I asked him, “Are you a big Saved by the Bell fan?” I asked because I grew up watching the show. “I was a writer for it,” he replied.
My mouth hung open. What? Are you kidding me? I thought. “Seriously?” was all I could think to say. We went on to relive my entire childhood. We talked in-depth about episodes, and the characters. Suffice it to say, that made my day. He was even gracious enough to run to his office, and grab a copy of an old script, and sign it for me. What a great man, and I couldn’t have been happier.
If you were not able to join me at the signing. My book is available at Where the Books Go, BookBar, and Amazon. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask, thanks and God bless!
