Something Wicked this Way Comes

I wanted to touch on this subject because the news was just wonderful to hear. This week at Night Owls review, Tammie King who is also a good friend of mine, gave the extasy books anthology "Sanguinary Seductions" five stars and gave it reviewers choice.

Which brings me to one of the topics at hand. In a previous post I spoke about writing from the heart. This only goes to show it does work. All twenty-two of those stories were written from the heart, albeit the majority were vampires we all did one heck of a job. Bravo.

Last Saturday I attended the Vegas valley Book Festival with several of my wonderful colleagues and friends. It was a warm sunny day filled with outdoor activities mainly for the children. Andrew and I did have the opportunity of meeting Elvis as we entered the gallery. "Thank you, thank you very much."

Once inside there were tables set up with many authors and their books. I noticed that we were the only table with the naughty books and had to chuckle. We had several onlookers and browsers and a couple authors approach our table. One gentleman came by three times just to swipe the chocolate we had in the basket. The majority of the patrons grabbed all the free books at the table, and that was actually a good thing because it helps to get the authors name out there, we sold our books, not many, but at least we did sell, got noticed and passed out our business cards.

The name of the game was network. This coming April we have another signing scheduled that we are all looking forward to which should give us a better opportunity.

I did have a nice rest, so it's back to the grindstone to finish the books on hold. I also begin a Fall semester online studies at Flamel College for a course and a certification in Paranormal Studies and UFO's so I am looking forward to that. I have plans to go to a few places here in Nevada that are known haunts with a few pros I met here in Vegas who are going to introduce me to the ghosts. One of the places is Armagosa which is where one of my own books is based. I will let you all know what I saw when I get back from there which won't be for another seven weeks.

Until then,

Happy Writing and Reading,

AP Miller

That's so cool! You'll have to keep us posted on that & on the places you go to meet the ghosties.

The paranormal studies sound really interesting, remind me to tell you about the time I slept in a refurbished apartment complex that use to be a brothel in Ely, Nevada during the mining boom there. Totally wild, very cool! :-D

You'll have to tell me more too about Flamel College...it sounds like they have such interesting classes!

Yeah, on the great review. I loved it as well. I collect them from every story I have to use as promotions because like you say, every little bit helps!

The book fair was so cool with all the interesting people we saw. Now that we have one under our belt, we'll need to see what we can do to make it better next year.

And we will!
