Throughout October, the Greater Victoria Public Library (in Victoria, British Columbia) is making time and space available to authors who have contributed to its Emerging Local Authors Collection.
On Saturday, October 15th, I joined three other authors for a pleasant couple of hours at the Oak Bay Branch of GVPL to display copies of our books and meet members of the public.
About a dozen people stopped to chat, look at books, ask about publishing and cover design. Between visits by the public, the four of us had some lively conversations about writing, publishing, and cover design. One copy of one book was purchased by a library patron, and at the end of the allocated time, we authors exchanged copies of our books.
In exchange for The Friendship of Mortals, I received the following:
The Opera Singer by Keith M. Costain.
Hunter’s Daughter by Nowick Gray.
The Tangerine Tigress by Rian Everest.
It’s my intention — articulated right here for all to see — to read these books and write reviews here on the blog, and on Goodreads.
