Springfield Ohio Book Fair — Summer Edition!

The webpage for this event says, “Come for the books, stay for the beer!” Or alternatively, you could come for a beer and the food trucks that will be at the Springfield Ohio Book Fair, and stay to meet some of the local authors and check out the variety of great books!

I’ll be one of several authors at the Springfield Book Fair on August 17. The event is sponsored by Hen House Publishing, and it’s held at Mother Stewart’s Brewing Company.

Here’s a link to the event page, where you can check out the other authors at the event: If you’re in the area, stop by!

A Beautiful Sunday at Authors at the Loft

After days of rain and severe storms, the weather turned out to be great on Sunday for Authors at the Loft at the Book Loft in German Village. I was fortunate enough to meet some new local authors and readers. Here are a couple of images taken by author Lasondra Burks.

Columbus Arts Festival

It’s almost June, and that means the Columbus Arts Festival is not far away. In addition to the many visual artists’ tents lining the streets, there is a “Word Is Art” tent where authors and poets read from their work. I’m happy to say that this year I’ll be on the schedule!

I’ll be doing a short reading (probably 10 minutes) from my upcoming new stand-alone fantasy novel, Taylenor. The time slot is from 11-12 on Sunday, June 9 — but the tent is active all weekend, and you can check out many other creatives reading from their stories or poetry.

Here’s a link to the arts festival website, with lots of visitor information, maps, etc. If you love art, and if you’re in the area, this is an event worth attending!

Also, this deer will be there (photo from 2017).
