Winning the North Texas Book Festival Award was a big moment as I was getting the word out on my novel-in-stories Evacuation Plan. It's tough work writing,
and perhaps even tougher to promote your work in a world that is increasingly segmented. Check out this list of writers. They're all working it. If you're in North Texas, go say hello to them and buy a book! Here are the details:
North Texas Book Festival, which celebrates all genres of writing, is 9 a.m.
to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 11, at Patterson-Appleton Center for the Visual Arts
in Denton. More than 50 authors from Texas and Oklahoma will sign and sell
their books. The
festival is open to the public, and there’s no admission charge. In addition, several
authors will speak to readers in small sessions. The
center is at 400 E. Hickory St.
