Busy! Wine Media list went out to my publicist Wednesday. I was working on it until 10 p.m., having recently come to an agreement re: the Big Publicist Hassle of a couple weeks back. I was reassigned to Carol Hoenig http://www.carolhoenig.com. She is sharp, has written a couple of award-winning books, and knows the business.
Yesterday was the writer’s group. Toni and Barbara are such good writers. I really enjoy reading their work and getting down and dirty about what needs to change to make it even better. Just being around them encourages me to work harder, too. Hopefully, in time, I will be a better writer because of them.
Barbara at Murder ByThe Book has paired me with British-American mystery author Carola Dunn for the signing on Sunday September 20, 1-3 p.m. This is an honor, because Dunn has penned many a mystery featuring heroine the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple and her sleuthing boyfriend Chief Detective Alan Fletcher. We’ll be serving wine and cheesey bits and having a great time, I’m sure.
Stop out at Chehalem Winery this weekend if you can. Its annual Celebration of the Arts has a great lineup of fine artists and craftspeople this year. I’ll be signing books both days noon-5. Go to “events” or visit http://www.chehalemwines.com.
