Just a brief reminder that I’ll be joining all the alums, students and faculty who are signing books this coming weekend for the In Your Write Mind workshop on the Seton Hill University campus in Greensburg, PA, this coming Friday, 6/22, from 7-9pm in the McKenna Athletic Center.
At the book event (which they’re calling a “Chocolate Covered Mass Book Signing”) on Friday, over thirty writers from an array of genres will be selling and signing their books, including: Kate Martin, Shelley Bates, Victoria Thompson, Meg Mims, Jason Jack Miller, Heidi Ruby Miller, Lawrence C. Connolly, William Horner, Rachael Pruitt, Scott A. Johnson, Sheldon Higdon, Gary Frank, Maria V Snyder, Patrice Lyle, Michael Knost, Geoffrey Fuller, Sally Bosco, Jessica Warman, J.L. Benet, Lynn Salsi, Lee Allen Howard, Lee McClain, Lana Ayers, Nicole Peeler, Ron Gavalik, Barbara Miller, Kristin Dearborn, Anne Harris, Rachell Nichole, John Edward Lawson, myself, and more. My indie publisher, Raw Dog Screaming Press, will be there with copies of my latest book (The Gorelets Omnibus) and launching alum Jason Jack Miller’s new novel (Hellbender). And there will be plenty of contributors to Many Genres, One Craft around to sign copies of the book Heidi Ruby Miller and I edited last year, as well. [We launched the book in a HUGE signing last year at this same event... see my photo coverage of it elsewhere on this website.
Our Writing Popular Fiction MFA summer residency begins this week, and our special guest this term is Donald Maass, agent and author of Writing the Breakout Novel. The alums are simultaneously hosting a feature rich workshop with many interesting guests and workshops -- they do this every June and it's open to all writers, but this year their guest will be the publisher of The Gorelets Omnibus, Raw Dog Screaming Press, and they're being supported by the Horror Writer's Association. See http://inyourwritemind.setonhill.edu/ for details about their workshops.
