Here in the US, November 1st is National Author's Day. This year it falls on a Monday. I'll be celebrating by taking part in my very first author panel/Q&A at the Monmouth County Library (HQ), Manalapan, NJ.
I organized it through the New Jersey Authors' Network (the free to join/free to use network I set up in 2008, for authors based in and near the Garden State to connect and work together).
There'll be six of us in all:
Jon Gibbs (moderator), Sandy Nicks, Stephen D. Matthews, Lee Barwood, Wallace Ecklof and Neal Levin (aka dqg_neal)
The theme for evening:
From Thoughts to Print: Getting Your Book Published
It's been a long time since I've appeared in a public event, and this will be my first without a band to back me up and a microphone to hide behind. I'm really looking forward to it - I just hope I don't forget the words.
It starts at 7:00pm, if you can make it, I'd love to see you there.
How about you?
What are your plans for National Authors' Day?
