My Author Event, Featuring Belly Dancers, An Endless Buffet, And Unicorns

Okay, so the title of this post *might* be partially fabricated. And by partially fabricated I mean it’s a lie. But not all of it! I really am having an author event in the month of April here in Birmingham, Alabama. And if you live in Birmingham, Alabama, I would really really really love to see you there.

Because honestly? It could end up being me, my husband, and my parents. Which is cool and all… except that I see them all the time. I want to see YOU.

So if you’re in the area, here is the official info blurb. I’ve bolded a particularly crucial detail.

The first step to publication is getting a literary agent, but that can be a huge challenge. Research, query, write a synopsis… where do you start?  Come hear local author and teacher Anne Riley discuss the process of researching literary agents, writing a query letter, constructing a book synopsis, and making yourself stand out in the crowd. Snacks will be served. Please call (205)439-5512 or email nsyouth@shelbycounty-al.org for more information.

This wild and crazy shindig is going down Monday, April 11, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm at North Shelby Library. It’s not a book signing, but if you bring me a copy of The Clearing to sign, well, let’s just say I’ll have a Sharpie at the ready.

Please come.

PLEASE.

    I am going to try my hardest to come. I usually get off work at 5 so it’s just a matter of getting off in time and getting there.

    I’m bringing my book…or 2 🙂

    Can’t wait to (hopefully) see you!

    haha If I lived in Alabama I would for sure come, but I’m too far. And Same goes for me, I’m having a writer’s retreat in Alberta, Canada and I’m not sure how many people will show up… It is hard hosting an event for the first time.

    1. Anne Riley says:

      YES. And I still have your Tupperware. If I don’t see you before then, I will bring both to the library.
