At Newpark Mall (2086 Newpark Mall, Newark, CA) from 10-6, near the food court, I will be with members of the Fremont Area Writers selling books. I have a fresh batch of Super Bad Hair Day books to sell, hopefully typo-free (although I might change a reference to Humphrey Bogart to James Cagney.) I will sign books. I will write. I’ll meet a budding artist, friend of a fellow FAW member. I will absorb creativity from my fellow writers. And I will see how strong my bladder is (the movie Malcolm X taught me two things: a movie can do justice to a great book, and never order a XXL soft drink at a three hour movie).
Tomorrow, October 20 2018, I will be at Campbell Con, West Valley College, 14000 Fruitvale Ave, Saratoga, CA. I will go to my critique group at 10, so I will be with the South Bay Writers table at Campbell Con starting around 1pm. I will stay till it ends at 5pm.
Tobe in the photo works on the online comic Villain. Check it out. He drew Super Holly doing the Power Girl punch for me on my art-from-comic-cons page (scroll down a bit).
(EDIT: Sunday Sept 16, not Saturday!) San Mateo Event Center / Fair Grounds, 1346 Saratoga Dr., San Mateo, Ca. 10am-5pm. I will get there around 1pm and will be at a table with Valerie Frankel and other Bay Area writers till closing. I still have some books to sell. And the free little menu book (I’ll post a little later about that). Bill Mumy (Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!) will be there, and I hope he sells some books. And I hope I sell some too. And maybe get some Super Holly and/or Kittygirl art drawn by a comic book artist or two. Here’s hoping.
P.S. Danger, you’ll have to pay for parking! Danger!
I will sell at AuthorFest 2018 (San Mateo Public Library, 12-3pm) and at Fremont Area Writers Group Book Signing (Newpark Mall, 10-11am & 3:30-6pm) this Saturday, July 14.
At AuthorFest 2018, at the San Mateo Public Library (55 West Third Ave, San Mateo, CA), a bunch of local authors will be selling books and doing readings from 12-3pm on Saturday July 14. Come and meet cool SF peninsula authors! And yes, I will PERFORM five minutes of one of my stories! Come and buy my new expanded Super Bad Hair Day CreateSpace book! 140 pages of superhero prose goofy goodness (well, about 6 pages are artwork I paid nice artists to draw at comic book conventions). Download a PDF about the cool AuthorFest 2018 authors!
On the very same day, from 10-6, at the Fremont Area Writers Group Book Signing at Newpark Mall (2086 Newpark Mall, Newark, CA) upstairs around the railing between Macy’s and the Food Court, I will also be selling my books in the morning and the afternoon. Yes, I will be driving to San Mateo at about 11:15 and I will be back around 3:30. Meet cool East Bay writers! I will burn gas. But I like these book selling events. Practice for when I become the next Stan Lee.
P.S. I will upload another CreateSpace version to fix a few missing dialog tags in the Intellecta-Rhapsody script chapter. Not a big deal. But I still need to upload this expanded version to Kindle, and that is a big deal, so do not buy the Kindle version yet.
P.P.S. And I will sign my book! Discover the inspiring message I pass on to ALL my buyers!
The Fremont branch of the California Writers Club is having a book sale at the Fremont Main Library (2400 Stevenson Blvd, Fremont, CA), Saturday Dec 2, 1-4PM. We will have an open mic at 2, and I will perform one of my stories. Click the poster to download the book covers, and the time and location.
I will also sell and sign paperback copies of Super Bad Hair Day. I include a CD with the book, which contains artwork of my superheroine Super Holly Hansson from Batton Lash and other artists, AND ebook copies of the book, AND audio MP3 versions of the stories in the book, AND EVEN my two stories that won the audio division at the San Mateo County Fair this year and last year (“The Malevolent Mystery Meat” and “The Intellecta-Rhapsody”). All that for only 5 bucks! SUCH A DEAL!!!
Come see me this weekend and later at the San Mateo County Fair Literary Arts Stage.
Saturday 6/10: 12-2pm I will sell books at the local author meet and greet. 2-3:30: I will be on the Carry the Light winner’s panel, and doing an open mic reading after that with other winners.
Wednesday 6/14 7-9pm I intend to do the open mic. At 6:45, my friend Tina Gibson will be reading from her book, Misfit Island.
Thursday 6/15: 7-9pm I will read from the story I submitted to this year’s Fault Zone anthology (currently title: What Goes Up). Saddest ending I have ever written for Super Holly.
Saturday 6/17: 2:45-4:30pm I will sell books.
When I personally sell my printed Super Bad Hair Day book, I include a CD with artwork, audio stories, and ebook copies of Super Bad Hair Day. And I sign it with a cool superheroic catchphrase. Only $5. Such a deal.
Wanna read local author stories? Buy Carry the Light at the fair or from Amazon. It contains my short story, The Lutefisk Door, and the transcript of my audio story, The Intellecta-Rhapsody (this was inspired by the classic music Hungarian Rhapsody as played by Woody Woodpecker.
