Busy with Book 'Em

This week my work has gone into overdrive. I am usually very busy between writing my suspense/thrillers and now working with a publisher to edit other authors' works. But to add to that mix, Book 'Em North Carolina is just a few weeks away. It consumes about 20 hours a week for me, year round, but during this time of the year it can often shoot to 40 hours or more.

If you missed my post earlier this week at the Book 'Em North Carolina blogspot, you can read how I co-founded The Book 'Em Foundation with Police Officer Mark Kearney, which led to the establishment of the annual Book 'Em North Carolina Writers Conference and Book Fair.

Just follow this link to read my blog, and follow this link to read more about our upcoming event.

It sounds like a great event. Thank you for all the work you put into it I know that it is appreciated by many. How many years have you been doing this Book Em Conference?

Maggie, thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I think our first Book 'Em event was in 2004, and there were some years where we did two or three - in Virginia, New Hampshire and South Carolina. But because of the fabulous community support we have here in Lumberton - plus its proximity to major interstates - this is becoming the flagship event! I hope you'll join us in 2015! I know it's a trek from Canada but I promise you'll love the weather!
