At the moment, I’m sitting at my dining room table typing up this post, but where I will be this Thursday, 4/12/2012, is at the Fremont Area District Library in Fremont, Michigan.
That’s right…my first talk as an author. The Fremont Library was kind enough to ask me to be part of their Writers Live group of presentations and I’m both honored and excited. I’ll be doing a talk entitled “Werewolves: They’re not just for Dating Anymore.” I’ll be talking about the history of werewolves, werewolf hunting strategies, and the forensic interpretation of werewolf kills. I’ll have some gnawed-on bones (not by werewolves but by my ever-willing-to-do-scientific-research Labrador, Frank). We’ll also take a look at carnivore teeth versus herbivore teeth. This is a BYOSG event: Bring your own surgical gloves. Hope to see you there!
On Saturday, 4/21/2012, I’ll be at the Kentwood branch of Kent District Libraries for the Michigan Author Showcase. This is an exciting event, part of the Celebrate the Mitten festivities. There will be 21 authors present for a book fair as well as three panel discussions. I’ll be participating in a panel discussion at 2:15 entitled They Will Love My First Draft As Much As I Do — Not! and Other Reality Checks for Budding Authors. This one sounds great, and you don’t even need latex gloves.
If I don’t see you at one, I’d love to see you at the other. Will you make it?
