I have mentioned a couple of times already that I will be attending the Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) big conference that is in Fort Worth, Texas this year. Their Annual General Meeting (AGM) is a huge event and this will be the first time I have attended! Needless to say, I am very excited and will be reporting on the happenings on Facebook while I am there, and then giving a bigger report when I come back. A bunch of my Austen Author buddies will be there and I am thrilled because with the exception of Abigail Reynolds I haven’t meet my pals face-to-face. Yes, we will Par-Tay!!
We have also managed to line up a joint appearance at the nearby Barnes & Noble! The Sundance Square B&N has graciously opened their cafe for us to host a book signing and fan interaction. This will be a fun, informal gathering. A few novels will be provided for purchase by B&N, but mostly this is our opportunity to reach out to our established fans, sign their copies of our books, and chat over coffee.
So, if you live in the area, here are the details—
Authors Present: Sharon Lathan (that’s me!), Abigail Reynolds, Cindy Jones, Karen Doornebos, C. Allyn Pierson, Mary Simonsen, and Susan Mason-Milks
Date: Sunday, October 16
Time: 1pm starting and ending when we have seen everyone!
Place: B&N in the Sundance Square at 401 Commerce St. in Fort Worth, Texas
I hope to see a few of my Dallas area readers.
