Attended Rick Porrello's program at Mayfield Branch of Cuyahoga County Public Library. Interesting presentation on Cleveland's mob history. He also talked about his experience having his book turned into a movie. Bought a copy of SUPERTHIEF and had him sign it. Glad I went.
On Sunday, forty people attended my Rum Run program. I gave a PowerPoint presentation on Prohibition local history and how it relates to my book. It was good to see many familiar faces amongst the audience. The Grafton-Midview Public Library staff provided rum cake and virgin pina coladas to set the Prohibition mood. I bought 3 boxes of Girl Scout cookies- two fold purpose to supply cookies for the event and support the scouts. GMPL has been very helpful and supportive of me. Thank you to the staff of GMPL, thank you to all who attended my event and thank you to all who purchased a book. I truly appreciate you all.
Vermilion's Ritter Public Library's director has contacted me to do a presentation for them in October. I am excited as Vermilion plays heavily in my book. Thank you, Janet F., I am looking forward to doing the event.
I have put the final touches on a new Power Point presentation for my book. It will include local Prohibition history as it pertains to the story. It has been fun but engaging. There is so much I am learning about computers along with the publishing/marketing aspect. I am getting antsy about not finding time to get to my next book which I started before RUM RUN's acceptance. So much to learn this past year.
My next presentation and signing will be at Grafton-Midview Public Library this Sunday. The staff has been so helpful and enthusiastic. To set the mood for the Prohibition bent presentation, staff is serving mocktails.
