We have returned from France, and the book tour now starts. There are five bookstores presently scheduled, with a few more pending. We are beginning with Southern California bookstores and will then gradually extend to other areas. I hope that some of you are in close enough proximity that you will be able to attend.
Dates and times are below:
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2016 MYSTERY INK
4:00 – 5:30 p.m. 8907 Warner Ave., #135
Huntington Beach, CA.
This is my first stop and I am being paired with mystery writer, Mike Befeler. I had a very pleasant conversation with Mike and he was very gracious in offering some advice, and providing me with the benefit of his experience at book signings. He will speak first about his new book, “Court Trouble,” and then it will be my turn to discuss “Forever Gentleman,” and the research I conducted in writing it. We will then open it up to the audience for questions. Following that, we will do book signings.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2016 MYSTERIOUS GALAXY
1:00 – 3:00 p.m. 5943 Balboa Avenue, Suite 100
San Diego, CA.
My second stop will have a little different format. At this event, there will be approximately 20 authors present. Each will have a few minutes to speak about his/her book. Afterward, the authors will sign books for purchasers.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2016 UNICORN BOOKS
3:00 – 5:00 p.m. 845 Main Street
Ramona, CA. 92065
Ramona, known for its wine, art, history and horses, is a quaint little town in North San Diego county. It’s been many years since I’ve visited, but I am definitely looking forward to returning.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2016 BOOK CARNIVAL
3:00 – 4:30 p.m. 348 S. Tustin Avenue
Orange, CA. 92866
For this event, I’ll be paired with another mystery writer, Corey Lynn Flanagan.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2016 OC PUBLIC LIBRARY-Tustin Branch
1:00 – 3:00 p.m. 345 E. Main Street
Tustin, CA. 92780
At this event, I will be speaking on a topic about which I have written in a previous blog, “Writing Music Into Fiction: A Celebration of 19th Century Music and Literature.”
We also have several other venues pending, some which will involve a short speech about the book, along with a mini-concert of one or more classical piano pieces that are prominent in the book.
I look forward to meeting you all.
