Tomorrow – Friday, November 22 – is Discovery Day at Barnes & Noble Cheyenne. A portion of anything you buy, including purchases in the Cafe, will benefit the Children’s Village at Cheyenne’s Botanic Gardens. (Be sure to tell your cashier you want your purchase to go toward the Village – that’s very important!) Staff from the Gardens will be at B&N from 5 until 9 with special greetings, and my friends Mary Gillgannon, Cindy Keen Reynders and Amanda Cabot will be signing books from 6 to 8. Great local authors and a great cause – it’s a great excuse to buy books!
Hopefully, Mary Gillgannon will have copies of “The Silver Wheel” for sale. It’s a historical novel that truly transports the reader to another time and place. Mary also writes sexy, fun Regencies, Viking romances, and the Hot Knights series. She also is one of the people I count on most to help me make sure my own books fulfill reader expectations. Her knowledge of what makes a great romance has helped bring my writing to another level.
Amanda Cabot is one of Cheyenne’s bestselling authors. She has a light touch with the spiritual aspect of her books; her Westward Winds trilogy, her Texas Dreams trilogy, and her stand-alone books are wonderfully well-written stories of women finding their way in life and love during challenging historical times. Amanda has been a friend and mentor to me for many years, and she’s been a great help when it comes to navigating the confusing world of publishing.
Cindy Keen Reynders is another author who will be appearing at Discovery Day at the Cheyenne Barnes & Noble. Cindy brings a playful sense of humor to everything from paranormals (the Wysteria Haven Clan series) to amateur detective stories (the Lexie-Lucy books). If you haven’t given this Cheyenne author a try, I highly recommend you stop by tomorrow to meet her and pick up a few of her books. I first learned of her through “The Saucy Lucy Murders,” which I thoroughly enjoyed, and her witch books are just as good!
I’m not able to be a signing author at this event, but I’m certainly hoping to go. It will be great to catch up with my writing friends, and replenish my library as well.
See you there!
