I’ll be participating in two booksignings this weekend to benefit the Pikes Peak Writers (PPW), and I’d love for you to stop by:
- Saturday, November 12th, from 4 to 6 pm, at the Boulder Barnes & Noble. This will be the first time I’ve signed in Boulder, my home town. (Why? I don’t know—just never got around to scheduling anything there.)
- Sunday, November 13th, from 4 to 6 pm, at the CO Springs Citadel Barnes & Noble. This store is real SF/F-friendly, having the biggest SF/F selection in the city.
How These Bookfairs Work
To help PPW continue in their support of writers, Barnes & Noble is hosting a benefit bookfair (12 – 17 Nov) and multiple signings. If you shop at B&N —whether in a store or online–during the benefit period, a portion of what you spend goes to PPW. This works for anything you buy, provided you mention the bookfair at the register or on the checkout page. It costs you nothing extra, and you can even use your B&N member discount. I hope you’ll join me at the signing, but if you can’t make it I invite you to shop BN.com/bookfairs between November 12th and 17th, and reference bookfair number #10553048. I have PDFs which have instructions and the bookfair number (for Boulder or for COS Citadel, both have same bookfair number). What could be easier?
About the Pikes Peak Writers
Pikes Peak Writers is a national nonprofit organization that helps writers learn, connect and grow through workshops, resources, contests, scholarships, and one of the best writer’s conferences in the country. Membership in PPW is now completely free, as are many of their programs.
I can attest, personally, that the PPW and their yearly Conferences are quite helpful and useful. It was their conference that allowed me to pitch to agents and editors; it’s where I met my future agent. Their conference contest allows writers who aspire to be published to improve their craft, and even to be “discovered” (SFF examples Carol Berg and myself come to mind—and there are plenty more in other genres, but I’m just too lazy right now to do the research).
