Author Talk: What Did They Ever Do To You?

I'm looking forward to tomorrow evening, when I'll be at the Monmouth County Library (HQ), Manalapan, with four other writers (WALT ECKLOF, LEE BARWOODHELEN HENDERSON and fellow GSHW member, NEIL MORRIS) for a New Jersey Authors' Network Q&A Panel called:

What did they ever do to you? Or... Why all Writers are Sadists

Kick-off's at 7:00pm

It's going to be a lot of fun. If you'd like to come along, I'd love to see you there.
