Colorado Gold Conference Begins Today

Today the conference fun begins. I checked into the hotel yesterday afternoon and played hermit while I caught up on e-mail, and did other online chores. I'll be pretty busy from 11:00 AM today until about 1:00 PM on Sunday.

Be sure to stop by The Blood-Red Pencil today for more tips on self-editing your manuscript.

In addition to tonight's booksigning event at the conference, I now have appearances or signings scheduled at:

Writers Block at Poudre River Public Library District in Fort Collins -- Saturday, September 26th 12:00-3:00PM

Brief signing session after Bouchercon Panel in Indianapolis -- Saturday, October 17th

Barnes & Noble Centerra in Loveland, CO -- Saturday, October 24th tentative time 3:00PM-5:00PM mystery event with other authors

Old Firehouse Bookshop in Fort Collins, CO -- Saturday, November 7th 12:00-2:00PM with mystery author Cricket McRae

Holiday Market at the Senior Center in Fort Collins, CO -- Friday and Saturday, November 27-28 10:00AM-5:00PM Author's Nook with various authors.

I still haven't scheduled an official launch party...can't decide what, where, and when. And I'm still debating the blogbooktour project. The thought of churning out an extra 7-10 blog posts when I could be working on my current novel project makes me feel anxious. But that's a decision for another day. Now it's conference time. Gotta get out there and do my assigned chores, meet lots of new people, connect up with old friends, and have a ball.

Hope the conference goes well!

I don't think a blog tour is all or nothing. I've taken a modified approach to my release and it seems to have gone well.

I'll look forward to hearing how you feel about your book signings and whether they are successful or not. Good luck, Patricia.

Stay away from the mini bar!
