I grew up with stories and these stories shaped my life - the ones I read and the ones I wrote. Stories still continue to inspire my life. Here are my thoughts on reading, writing, and life.

Marketing - National Bookstore Day
Sunday November 7th is National Bookstore Day and a great opportunity for you to contact your local bookstores and setup a reading or book signing.
And for those of you with books in progress, you can still contact the local bookstores to find out if they are open to local authors participating in the event. They may allow you to read some of your short fiction or poetry, which helps to get your name out to the world. Hand-out postcards or other promotional materials (with the bookstore's permission) directing people to your website or blog. If nothing else, it helps to build your mailing list.
