A Novel Idea and Loyola University Talk


Normally, with the release of a book, I attend several events to help promote the book, reading passages from it and talking with readers in the audience. In light of the pandemic, in-person events have been halted, so opportunities to present The Color of Jadeite directly to readers have been slim. But I still look for ways to connect to potential readers and writers.


Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of presenting some thoughts on book marketing as an author—some things that have worked for me and some that have not—to a class at Loyola University.


I also served as judge for a Howard County Community Center flash fiction contest.  This coming Monday, the winner will be revealed during their “A Novel Idea” program, featuring me as a guest author. During the hour-long Webx program, we will enjoy some Great American Novel trivia, talk about fiction writing, and reveal the award-winning entry.
