Recently, I (along with many of my co-conspirators from the Main Line Writers) published an anthology called Unclaimed Baggage, Voices of the Main Line Writers Group. Our book signing was October 27th at an adorable store in the King of Prussia Mall called Nestology. We all went into it with varying degrees of expectation, from the very pessimistic to the wildly optimistic. In the end we sold out every copy, and had to order more. People ask me when they can get the book, I tell them soon. (In fact, it’s now available on Amazon.

Book signings are funny things. You get to talk to people who come because (in this case) they know an author, but also we had quite a few drop in because the signing was at the mall, and people were curious. When they saw the book was written by local authors, they wanted to buy a copy and be a part of the celebration. They wanted all of us to sign. it was great fun.

So for everyone who came and joined in the fun on Sunday, I say thank you. You certainly made my day. I hope you enjoy all the stories. There’s a wide variety in the book–humor, to literary fiction, to horror, to mysteries. Something for everyone.

A Thank You

Taking Up the Challenge

I’ve just signed up for the Story A Day challenge in which you must write a short story every day in May. I don’t know how many people are familiar with StoryADay but it’s run by a lovely woman named Julie Duffy who believes that writers need to put aside excuses for not writing and just do it. If you keep just doing it, it will become second nature. That sounds reasonable to me. In any case, I love a good challenge. So, 31 short stories in May. Don’t know if I can do it, but I intend to try. Anyone out there who wants to try should look up and give it a whirl.
