It's a very writerly weekend for me. Tina Crone, one of those talented Pennwriters I'm lucky to know, arranged a booksigning at the wonderful Midtown Scholar Bookstore in Harrisburg, PA. I'll be signing The Keepers of Sulbreth and my romance novels.
The Midtown Scholar carries new books and supports local authors but they also carry a large selection of used books. The used books are not for the casual reader of genre fiction but rather a sprawling collection of books from decades and even centuries ago. I've added a few of their old volumes to my keeper shelves. One can browse for hours in their fiction and then drift downstairs to the nonfiction areas. Once you gather an armful of books to puruse, grab a great drink or snack from the coffee bar and climb the open stairway to the second floor and the comfy sofas that overlook 2nd street. It's really lovely. Lots of customers move through the store though I don't expect tons of sales. It's always fun to talk to other book lovers.
Also on Saturday, TBR blog, started by Cate Masters, will feature a blurb fest where romance authors can post a promotion and links for one of their romance novels. A few weeks ago, TBR hosted fantasy authors and it had lots of comments and visits. I'm hopeful it will be as successful this time.
Will you be doing work or having fun this weekend? Do you have Monday off for President's day? Are you shopping for some new reads online?
