A Novel Idea

ANINov19

Thank you to Crema Espresso Gourmet for hosting us November 12th! And a special thanks to the attendees. We enjoyed giving information about our book creations followed by readings. This is a lovely venue in the heart of Dunwoody which is just north of Atlanta.

I read from my historical fiction “Chocolate for Lilly” set in the 1920’s Gilded Age eastern seaboard of America and gifted a few of my novels to readers. In addition I read my favorite poem I wrote about the fairy tale The Little Match Girl. My title for this is “I Dreamt One Night.” You can find that poem in my collection of poems in “Autumn Quotes.” All are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online venues in digital and print.

Georgia Author of The Year Awards

50th Annual Georgia Author of The Year

One hundred and eighteen authors from Georgia were honored back in June at the 50th Annual Georgia Author of The Year Awards. Spouses, children and parents came together for this celebration at the Kennesaw State University Continuing Education Center lending their support for the authors. The event is sponsored by The Georgia Writers Association and The Kennesaw State University College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

This made it real for me. My novel ‘Bleu Moon’ was nominated and frankly I was excited to be there. I know all the hard work that I contributed to making this the best product ever. The whole event was professional and enjoyable; I met some lovely folks. I am grateful that I didn’t miss it. When you sit at your desk, counter or wherever by yourself for hours, then turns into days and months you begin to wonder will others enjoy your creative end? This ceremony reinforced that I am on a beautiful path of enlightenment, not to mention storytelling.

I am a member of the Georgia Writers Association and will be attending my first Writers Conference this fall in the historic city of Savannah. I know Savannah but will probably learn much more through the eyes of writers; this will probably be visually and lyrically somewhat theatrical. I’m excited, can you tell?

Many writers were honored and won the award for their genre. The Lifetime Achievement Award went to the country’s own poet laureate, Natasha Trethewey, who writes poetry related to her upbringing, namely her mother and father’s biracial marriage. More information can be obtained at http://www.georgiawriters.org.

Bleu Moon was nominated in the Fiction category for the Georgia Author of The Year Award.
