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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
