A Season for Book Events

September 21st, 2013

bmorebookfest-602x1024Some of the best book-related events seem to come in the fall and early winter. It certainly has something to do with promoting book purchases for holiday giving, but I suspect it’s also related to the changing weather and the need to stock up on books before falling temperatures drive us indoors.

The 20th Century Scop will be doing a number of appearances in the coming weeks, and I hope to blog about all of them as they approach. That’s my intention, anyway. We’ll see how I do as each one comes and goes.

For now, here’s a brief overview of where I’ll be and what I’ll be doing between now and the end of the year.

First will be the 18th annual Baltimore Book Festival, a huge book event scheduled to take over Mt. Vernon Place near the center of the city. I’ll be appearing there on Saturday, September 28, doing a signing at the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America tent and giving a musical performance at the Festival’s main stage.

Next up will be a presentation of Hearing Voices – featuring stories from my fiction collections. The event will take place October 14 at PAISTA – the Pittsburgh Area Independent School Teachers Association, held this year at Sewickley Academy, right outside Pittsburgh.

Additional Brighton events are being scheduled. I’ll have a complete list when I post the full UK preview in a couple of weeks.

Other appearances are also in the works as well. I’m looking forward to all of them . . . and to a long winter holiday when I can stay home and read the books I’ll be picking up along the way.

More soon. For now, scop on!
