Book 'Em NC

WritePersona To Visit Book 'Em Blog

I'm scheduled to appear as a guest blogger Monday (July 21) on the Book 'Em NC site. Authors who will be at the 2015 conference in February were invited to provide blogs about their books. Mine is scheduled to appear for two days at http://www.bookemnc.blogspot.com. I hope you'll take a look.

Book 'Em North Carolina is an annual writers conference held in Lumberton. Seventy-five authors are allowed space to sell their books throughout the day while speakers provide continuous programs in the nearby auditorium. What's really nice is that authors are charged no booth fee and visitors are allowed in the door free. The event is funded by local businesses. Those of us selling books agree to donate a percentage to the conference, which in turn donates to literacy programs in the state. It's a win-win situation. 

I attended the 2013 conference. Bob Mayer and Haywood Smith were featured authors, and both of them were entertaining as well as informative. Mayer was especially good, and he will be featured at the South Carolina Writers Conference at Myrtle Beach in October.
