A Little Something

Jake adThe other day, one of my writer friends was setting up a press release for our book signing at Barnes and Noble (The Summit) in Birmingham, Alabama on February 8 from 1 to 3 p.m.  And she asked a couple questions you might be interested in seeing the answer.

As a local author, what about Birmingham and Alabama inspires you? How do you weave your local experiences into your stories?

A well-known fact of the South, it’s rich with culture and history. The people love to tell about what happened to them and their relatives with rarely any of the good bits left out. My dad and his dad were big talkers and big readers. No surprise that I am too. So when you mix a reader with someone who likes to talk, they often turn out to be a writer. That’s me.

First Book Store Signing! All Hot Romance!

Be sure to type this date into your phone calendar, February 16, 2013, 2 p.m. I will be at the Patton Creek Barnes & Noble in Hoover, AL!

I’m so excited. So far I’ve signed books at my writers’ group luncheons three times and three times at conferences (Silken Sands and RWA Anaheim), but this will be my first time to sign at a book store.

As Naima said, “We’re bringing the heat! Join authors Carla SwaffordKira SinclairDebra GlassKerry Freeman and Naima Simone at the Patton Creek Barnes and Noble in Hoover, AL on February 16 at 2 p.m. for great books, laughter and most likely some inappropriate jokes! Come have fun with us!”
