Lyndsay Eli with GUNSLINGER GIRL (YA Novel) at Spellbound Children's Bookshop

January 20, 2018 from 6pm to 7pm
Are you a fan of The Hunger Games?  Then picture what Katniss would be like - with a gun.  That's just a taste of the "new" West action Lyndsay Eli brings to Spellbound Children's Bookshop with Gunslinger Girl.  She shares her debut novel on Saturday, January 20, at 6 p.m. The US has been fractured by a Second Civil War. Serendipity 'Pity' Jones finds a home of sorts in the corrupt, lawless city of Cessation (think Las Vegas on steroids).  Her shooting skills make her a star of the Theater…See More

How To Kill Your Reader

Danger is a crucial element in a mystery novel. A killer is on the loose and no one is safe. But sometimes the killer can be the writer, and the victim, the reader.I'm talking about when the author turns into a preacher and the story becomes a sermon. Now I am not against using a mystery novel for social commentary. Writing doesn't happen in a moral vacuum, and, after all, isn't a mystery a morality play? As fellow North Carolina author Margaret Maron said there is no topic that can't be dealt…See More

Renea - Thanks for the friend invitation. Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I'm trying to find a publisher for my third Mattie Mitchell humor/cozy mystery, and you can imagine how much time that takes. I'll visit your blog. Mary Berger

Hi Renea,

I'm new to The Read. Thanks for drawing me into the fold. I'll be interested to meet you one day. I spend a lot of time in Boone on the weekends, even though I live near Greensboro. Two of my books, The One and the nearly released Three Gifts are contemporary novels about the Valle Crucis area. Hope our paths will soon cross! Best wishes with your work.

Renea,

It's always nice to connect with other NC writers. I'm afraid I haven't done a very good job of staying connected with THE READ. As you know, marketing one's books can keep an author darting in many directions.

 

I'm author of HAD EVE COME FIRST AND JONAH BEEN A WOMAN (a collection of short stories in which I imagine OT heroes as women) and OUT OF THE PUMPKIN SHELL (a laugh/cry novel about women's friendship and family secrets).

I wish you the best with your writing projects.

Nancy

Hi Renea nice to meet you. I haven't spent much time here. I've been working to release my 2nd book, Tales of an Animal Communicator ~ Master Teachers. I released it 2 weeks ago, so hopefully I'll be able to check out this site more in the near future. Still need to get it in ebook form. Always something...
