I was able to attend a book signing for two local authors today. Fun that they are also part of a writers' group that I have recently joined. Not sure when I will get the time to read their books, but since I don't have to return them to the library this time I'm not feeling the pressure to stay up past my bedtime... maybe that will change once I start reading and I will WANT to stay up.
Congratulations to Maureen McQuerry on the release of The Peculiars, and Stephen Wallenfels on the release of POD.
The main thing I wanted to point out here is what I read on Maureen's acknowledgments page. She pays particular thanks to her "Monday Writers" group, mentioning four people by name. How great would that be to have a group of writing friends who were so instrumental in seeing your book through to publication that you thank them by name.
Still looking for my group...
