A Final Farewell

Yesterday, an organization I’ve been involved with for five years closed it doors along with the publishing company that branched out from it – both the Fantasy and Science Fiction Network and Azure Fire Publishing. It has been an adventure and great learning experience working with the authors of the two groups and will forever be remembered. You can see the farewell notice on here. Thank you to all members past and current for making it a great run!

Literary Love

I could give you an hour by hour recall but I’ll give you a brief rundown -2 signings, 2 lunches, 1 dinner, 1 costume ball, and several other things in between. Additionally after each evening we walked several miles along River Street. The best part of all this wasn’t the things we did but the people we spent time with. The readers were the best ever! These readers were friendly and wanted to hear about every story. They wanted to meet the authors and learn about them. They were the most interactive readers I’ve ever
