Michael Koryta has written a new book, called Last Words.  About one of his prior works, Steven King has said,  “THE RIDGE is a classic ghost story, penned by a master. I couldn’t put it down, even though I almost screamed when the wind blew a branch against the tree outside my study. Yes, it’s that scary.”

I met Lynda Jones-Burns, author of A Complicated Love Story at Book Expo America, #BEA15. She wrote a very interesting novel that is perfect for the students of The Chiles Academy in Daytona Beach. It even has discussion questions at the end. She was moved by the mission of the Chiles Academy and signed two books for me. She also said she wants to know more about the school and may stop there sometime.

I met Julia Chadwell, author of Little Texas Sweetheart at Book Expo America in New York, #BEA15. It’s a true story about the authors struggle to overcome being a battered woman.  She signed a copy to the Students of the Chiles Academy of Daytona Beach, Florida, a charter school for teen mothers, and a caregiving facility for their children and other children. She also intends to send them more copies as a donation. The woman who’s sitting is the author’s daughter.  I gave them a copy of my book, White Sugar, Brown Sugar as well.

When I Grow Up by Kathy Gueye at #BEA15!

Today was the first day of Book Expo America 2015.  My shoulders hurt from lugging three bags full of other people’s books back to the room.

I met some nice people, and they signed books.

I met Kathy Gueye, author of When I Grow Up, a children’s book “celebrating the infinite possibilities of the imagination while learning!”.  She was gracious enough to sign two books for me, one a birthday present for seven year old almost author, Imon Neveah Williams, and another for the Chiles Academy in Daytona Beach, Florida, a school for teen mothers and their children.


Book Expo America (BEA) New York City 2015

I arrived today at Book Expo America (BEA) in New York City.  I came two years ago to check it out, but this time I’m participating.  This afternoon I met a few authors and publishers and received a few books.

I brought three suitcases laden with copies of White Sugar, Brown Sugar with me, and had cards made up for marketing.  I also have cards for Armstrong Media Group.

Packing – who needs clothes?
