Getting Ready for My First Author Talk

If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain. ~ Dolly Parton

The clock is ticking.  Saturday is the big day.  Several media groups agreed to publish details about the event on Saturday, April 16th at the Ramona library from 9am to 11am.  Peter Zindler and Byron Mettler will join me on the stage as we discuss topics related to writing and publishing.

My good friend, Elliott Fox, will introduce me.  This is even more special now because of his role as honorary team tennis captain.  He knows how to win and how to motivate others.  His battle with a rare form of cancer is managed the same way he attacks all other areas of his life.  He expects to win.  Our team has learned much from this special man. 

No Ramona mixed doubles tennis team has ever won a championship.  At eighty-five, honorary team captain Elliott can add this accomplishment to his impressive resume.  I'm counting on him one more time to inspire me on Saturday.  His words of wisdom will be special.

Don't forget to bring a used book to donate to the library.  Your used book will give you a discount at the book signing.  There will also be a writing contest and the winners will be published on this blog.  Winning entries may also appear in one of our local papers.  Don't miss a chance to see if you've got what it takes to be a writer.  I'm excited to meet you.
