I've had some lovely reviews of Fur-Face since it came out in June.  So far, none of them bad - unless you read the one from my old gran, sent by Ouija board to my Auntie Agatha, but nobody else saw that, and besides, gran spelled 'illiterate halfwit' wrong so it doesn't really count. 

The latest review I've seen was by Catherine Schaff-Stump (aka
[info]cathschaffstump). 

Catherine was also kind enough to interview me, so if you enjoy reading about a wannabe best-selling author blathering on about the book what he wrote, and/or would like to know what Catherine thought about Fur-Face, here's a link to both
the interview and the review 
 
TAKING THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD
Now that I have Fur-Face available on CD, I've been doing my best to fill my dance card.  Here's where I'll be at over the next couple of months:

Saturday, September 25th:  The Ocean County Book Festival in Tom's River, New Jersey.  Me and nine other writers from the New Jersey Authors Network  and GSHW will be touting our wares from 11:00am to 3:00pm - we may even try to sell a few books too. 

Saturday, October 2nd:  The Collingswood Book Festival in Collingswood, New Jersey (10:00am - 4:00pm).  I'm a little late to the party on this one, due to babysitting/son visiting college that day challenges, but I'm hoping one of my GSHW friends has room on a table for me, but whether or not I get to take part, this looks likes a lot of fun.

Monday, November 1st:  New Jersey Authors' Network panel Q&A at Monmouth County Library (HQ), Manalapan, New Jersey.  To celebrate National Author's Day, I'll be moderating myself and five other authors in a panel/Q&A at my local library.  The theme: FROM THOUGHTS TO PRINT: Getting your book published, starts at 7:00pm 

Fri-Sat, November 19th - 21st: PhilCon 2010 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Cherry Hill, New Jersey.  I went last year to help out at the GSHW table.  It was a lot of fun.   
 
Saturday, November 27th:  The Fine Art of Self-promotion, a one hour presentation based on my bossy blog posts on the subject, for those lovely folks at the Greater LeHigh Valley Writing Group (Palmer Library, Palmer, PA, 11:00am - 12:00pm).  After lunch, I'm running a workshop, IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU - the secret to good blogging
 

Monday, November 29th: A yet to be titled blogging presentation (I only got the invite last night) at East Brunswick Library (New Jersey), similar to The Fine Art of Self-promotion, but less writer-specific.
 

How about you?

Any chance we might be bumping into each other during the coming months?

Maybe the author's network panel or Philcon hopefully. Also, if you're open to doing another writer's group presentation, message me. We love having guest speakers and I promised to try and have some writers come in.

I'm planning to go to Philcon (it's really close to where I live). I hope I'll see you there!

I might run into you a time or two this fall. :)

Probably only at Philcon and the regular GSHW meetings though. I don't expect to make it down to Toms River this weekend, and after the Icecream incident with my son last year....Collingswood is a maybe.

I love how Philcon is now in NJ. First the Giants and Jets, now Philcon. Why is it everyone wants to use NJ for their stuff, but won't take the name? How rude!

That weekend is my NJ book launch party, so while I'll be in NJ, I won't be at Philcon. Again. :(

Why not launch it at PhilCon? It'd be a twofer :)

Enjoy all those presentations! Wish NJ weren't so far from VT so I could get to one of the blogging/self-promotion presentations. But since I can't, I'm glad I've been reading your blog.

Were I even remotely in the area, I'd totally stop by. However the commute is a killer between Colorado and Jersey so... Have fun, I hope it goes awesome!

Well... I could sneak out to the Seattle-Tacoma International and hide in a wheel-well of one of the east bound jets... gotta find my Long-Johns for that though!
