Upcoming Appearances at WBN and SOKY

Upcoming Appearances at WBN and SOKY

April is upon us and I have some fun events on the agenda. Take note, especially if you are in the general Kentucky part of the world, for the places I will be showing up.MDFL WBN First on my agenda is the long-awaited World Book Night US event.

On the evening of April 23 volunteers literally all over the US and many places internationally will be handing out copies of the 35 titles chosen this year, giving the gift of reading to multiple-thousands of people with minimal ability to obtain books themselves. 22,000 copies of each title, including Miss Darcy Falls in Love, will make their way into the hands of lucky readers.

I, like most of the authors whose novels were chosen, am honored to assist in the big launch of World Book Night US 2014. All over the US, as seen in the map image below, authors will make appearances at a book store or library near their home town. I will be traveling about an hour away to Lexington.

Here are the details for me–

I’ll be there to talk about the WBN event, answer questions, and share my love of reading. Naturally I am always thrilled to sign my novels and give signed bookmarks. If you are in the vicinity of Lexington, be sure to pop in. Or maybe one of these other authors are close to you…


The weekend right after World Book Night is the 16th Annual Southern Kentucky Book Festival. Now that I am officially a Kentucky resident, how could I not attend this excellent event?

SOKY Book Fest'In short, the two-day SOKY Book Fest is an author-reader fundraiser for literacy in Southern Kentucky, sponsored by local libraries and book sellers. Over a hundred authors from every genre (fiction and non-fiction) gather together to sign books sold on site by Barnes & Noble. There are also a number of panel discussions and other special events such as Children’s Day.
