Back to Waynesville

I'll be cruising back to Waynesville tonight for an authors' reception at Windows On Main, in the heart of town. It's a prelude to the Book Fair tomorrow, across the street at the Justice Center. Like many other authors, I'll be there at the Fair, hopefully signing copies of books for interested readers.

The reception starts at 6:00 tonight. "Heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served and door prizes will be given. Tickets are $15.00 and are available at" Osondu Booksellers, according to Osondu's website. Other authors scheduled to be there tonight include Darnell Arnoult, Michael Beadle, Billie Bierer, Regan Black, Marian Coe, Scott Dickson, Sherry Fair, Struan Forbes, Marshall Frank, Alan Gratz, Tommy Hays, James Joyce, Schuyler Kaufman, Vicki Lane, John Malone, Roger Meadows, Clyde Ray, Elva Sieg and Haywood Smith. Hmm, James Joyce? I know just a few of these folks, and am curious to meet others - especially mystery writer Vicki Lane, who sets her stories in Madison County. As it turns out, we have mutual friends.

If you've thought you might eventually get a copy of NatureS, the Book Fair might be a good time to do it; there are other readings coming up, several in and around Asheville in October, but the first printing is almost gone. If you're involved in that side of book collecting, and prize first printings, unique states of publication, and the like (as I confess I do at this stage of my life) you've been advised. Just saying ...
