Ohio Authors Book Fair

I’ve been away from this blog for a while — hopefully that will be changing! After a demanding year and family health issues, things are trending better and I hope to resume normal life, including a few more writing events this year.

I’ll be starting out by joining several other Ohio authors at the Ohio Authors Book Fair, scheduled for May 27, 2023 at the Destination Outlets in Jeffersonville, Ohio. You can find a variety of books there — thrillers, romance, poetry, mysteries, and my own fantasy novels among them. I’ll also have the award-winning Blood on the Blade sword & sorcery anthology available, containing ten great stories including “The Sorceress Maiz” by yours truly.

Start your Memorial Day weekend off right by joining us at the Book Fair! Here’s a link to the event page on Facebook for more information.

Panel: Writing Great Genre Fiction

The 2020 Ohioana Book Festival is being held online this weekend, and I’m excited to be part of the Ohioana panel on Writing Great Genre Fiction!

The other authors participating are Sheldon Gleisser, Richard J. Norgard, TG Wolff, and John Vanek. The moderator will be Moriel Rothman-Zecher. Here’s a link to the Facebook page where you can see details about the panel, which will be held live online at 1 pm EDT on Sunday.

The book festival takes place throughout the weekend with various online panels. Here’s a link to the Ohioana Library Association’s preview of the weekend’s events:


Virtual Ohioana Book Festival

Hello, all! I’ve included a link below to the Ohioana Library’s post about this year’s book festival. The original festival was postponed to August due to concerns about Covid-19. Of course, now we know that unfortunately this virus isn’t going away by August. So the festival has now been changed to a virtual event that will take place over three days, from Friday, August 28 to Sunday, August 30.

Ohioana is planning a variety of panels and events that will be held over Zoom and social media platforms. I’m hoping to participate!

Further details will be upcoming. Stay tuned! 🙂

Y-Bridge Arts Festival

The Ohio Writers’ Association will have a table at the upcoming Y-Bridge Arts Festival in Zanesville, Ohio on August 3 and 4. I’ll be signing my novels at 5 pm on Saturday, but stop by anytime to support local authors! There will be several authors signing during the festival — 5 pm to 9 pm on Friday, and 1 pm to close on Saturday.

Here’s a link to Ohio Writers’ event page, listing the authors who will be signing.

Here’s a link to the main event page. There will be more than 75 artists and craftspeople there, music and food trucks, and a beer tent. Looks like fun!
