Local Author Follow-up

I wanted to follow up on the Extravaganza from Sunday. It was held at Lift Bridge Books in nearby Brockport, NY. I have never seen so many local authors in one place. It was great. I had no idea that there was such a variety of work being done in this area. I met Nelson Blish, a thriller author, and picked up his book The Taking of the King. I also picked up Raymond Duncan's thriller Patriot Trap. I re-connected with Robbi Hess, who I had taken a class with at Writers & Books, "Writing Killer Fiction" with Charles Benoit. (Who was there, too, signing copies of Relative Danger and Out of Order.) Robbi's book The Complete Idiot's Guide to 30,000 Baby Names is doing well. But her big news was that she had purchased a writer's magazine called ByLine and plans to produce it locally. Good luck and Well Wishes go out to her.

In similar news, Lorraine Bartlett reports that she had a Stupendous day Saturday signing at the Webster Barnes and Noble. I've just started her novel Murder on the Mind. I'd like to fit an interview with her in sometime soon. I'll just have to ask...
