Got my first book club gig.

A Dunwoody group is reading “Jaybird’s Song” as its May selection and I’ll be joining their discussion just before Memorial Day.

I have to say, I’m feeling pretty groovy with all this.

In fact —thoIMG_0517ugh unrelated to the release of my first novel and all the internal hoopla I’ve got over that — I’m feeling a renewed surge in my personal pledge to reintroduce the word ‘groovy’ back to the day-to-day vernacular. It’s a personal thing, but it is my contention that that there is often no other word that will do…

So, anyway, here are my April plans for promoting my story:

I’ll be back at Lemonade Days as part of the Dunwoody Authors’ Book Sale — a tent that will be located near the entrance to the Lemonade Days festival on April 22 and 23. There are about 17 Dunwoody area authors that will be a part of the event designed to bring attention to the many great books coming out from Dunwoody — and hopefully selling a few!

The following Sunday, April 30, the Dunwoody Preseration Trust will host these same authors at a book signing event from 2-4 pm on the grounds of the historic Donaldson Bannister home. We’ll be set up inside and outside the property’s recently restored barn. The event will also serve as an opportunity for citizens to see the property as it opens as a public Dunwoody park.

I also have an idea for some low-level distribution of the book via a social experiment I’m calling READ SNAP SHARE and I’ll get more specific about how that will work in a week or so.

I’ve always wanted to be an author and I’m feeling like one today! Can’t wait to join the ladies for their May discussion of “Jaybird’s Song!”
