MEET YOUR LITERARY COMMUNITY was held at the Phoenix Public Market on Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 8:00 a.m to 12:00 p.m. Phoenix writers gathered, and I got to read the prologue of my forthcoming novel, AND SO WE DIE, HAVING FIRST SLEPT. This was actually my first time reading a portion aloud for an audience . . .
But here are my photos, which include many local writers!
NOT NECESSARILY IN ORDER BECAUSE I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO THAT ON MY BLOG.
|I like my table!|
|kimberly k williams -- she taught on the Navajo Reservation on the AZ and NM border for years, and we discussed Sherman Alexie on Stephen Colbert.|
|Andrea Avery seriously wrote one of the best books I read this year, SONATA.|
|misako yamazaki -- can you believe I have a TA who is a creative writing major??? She's awesome, and I think we both like cats.|
|Classic Tim and Jennifer photo. He doesn't always frown. But he seriously hates photos. I've actually given up on being physically beautiful, so I'm, like, whatever.|
|Shawnte Orion is a celeb in Phoenix. He published with my pub also (Five Oaks), and all of his books are winners.|
|We're here again.|
|suzie olsen -- she writes this adorable children's book series starring an armadillo, and I would've bought them but I'm poor and my kids are preteen maniacs|
